    Thanks, everybody!  I'm still pretty new at this sort of modeling, but my years of building "normal" models have really helped.  Plus there's s ton of good how-to videos and blog posts on these.  
     
    Plain grey plastic.  The base is smooth, I've added rocks and sand and painted it.  

    Latest one, I think this is the first one where it really clicked.  I'm really proud of this one

    It's a new kit coming first from Revell Germany. Everybody's getting in on that Heller Ferguson $$$$ Tractors are the new hotness.

    What I've been up to lately - Warhammer 40,000
    Games Workshop recently came out with a new edition of Warhammer 40k, and with it a new starter set called Dark Imperium.  I've been asked by my shop to paint up their store sample set for use in demo games.  I've got about 1/4 of the set done, there's around 60 figures total. 
     
    Apologies for the difference in picture quality, some were done in a light box, others in the shop display, others were workbench pics.  I'll round them all up when done and take good pictures.

    They fixed the seats and wonky body character line in the 1970 Torino reissue a couple years ago, that kinda flew under the radar.

    Rest of the Revell 1QTR boxarts while we're at it...

    That's Acapulco Blue, right?  Great color.  I always thought red was one of the factory colors (due to Bud Moore's Trans Am cars being red & Black) but you're right, it's not.  Calypso Coral is the orange, Grabber colors were Shelby only in '69.

    Check out this guy's YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bbHTLgPXaM  , he has some great tips on using water-based acrylic craft paints that I'm sure will apply to Createx.     
    Here's another channel with a series on Createx on model cars https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z74p0mpNO-Y I haven't watched it but hopefully it has some useful info I saw it in the recommendations on that other video.

    Corvettes and NASCAR's...   But that's what I liked to build growing up, so it didn't bother me.  Or maybe that's what I liked to build because that's what was readily available? Growing up in a NASCAR town didn't hurt, either.

    As far as I know the 69 is and has always been 25th. The 1970 Boss 302 is ex-Monogram so it's 24th and I'm pretty sure has always been labeled as such.  The only time I can recall they mislabeled a 24th for 25th was for the Baldwin-Motion 70 Chevelle and they fixed that on later runs.

    They do a good job with the retail site - autoworldstore.com   I don't even bother with the corporate site anymore when I need pics or info for something Round2, I just go there.

    Whoops, it didn't even dawn on me that the old kit was a Mach 1.  Hopefully they'll fix the droopy headlights while they're at it.
