  1. Getting down to it. I have a windshield on the way, so I hammered on it for a bit this afternoon. A couple more decals to be added, one more coat of Future, and...

    I decided to add some half fenders left over from the Can-Do wrecker. I had to trim out alonf the inside front to clear the spring bracket. They're just laying on the rear tires in the pic.

    Final test fit:


  2. 1/20th scale CJ-7 built to replicate my 1:1 -


    A 1/16th scale is on the bench.

    Dodge RamCharger -


    LA County Sheriff's Office Rescue Bronco (from the TV show 240-Robert) -


    Chevrolet Blazer in Chicago Police Department livery -


    Jeep Cherokee in New Orleans Police Department livery -


  3. Kinda of a test fit...

    Started working on an old trailer that is in pieces. Didn't like the color, so I'm laying down some aluminum tape. The ribs are a pain, but a vinyl decal applicator and lots of patience helps. Scratched some taller stacks out of aluminum tubing. Started on a windshield out of a piece of clear stock. It wouldn't be too bad other than that famous curve at the edges.


  4. Just curious, why does the driver have the NASCAR Aero wheel, Interstate Batteries and MBNA decals on it if you were matching the exterior or replicating the Mobil 1 driver? Seems that with your skills of painting you might have opted to adorn him with series correct sponsors…

    Who's to say they didn't sponsor him? There are a ton of associate sponsors out there...

  5. Went to Hobby Lobby today to check out the 30% off sale. Didn't really see anything that I just had to have, but on the endcap, they had some open box stuff. Lo and behold, but a 1/12th Revell Ferrari Testarossa had been marked down from $69.99 to $15.49. Checked it out and all bags, decals, and instructions are present.

    Guess what followed me home and got stashed before the wifey found out...

  6. After working on the Patron Tequila Porsches last year, I saw how much rubber gets built up around those wheel wells. My guess, judging by roadhawg's pic and the cleanliness of the inside of the rear bumper, is that the tubs are part of the rear clip and detach as such.

    Other than that, absolutely beautiful job!


    Thats me just behind the orange car (Mid-Ohio).

  7. I did one of these way back when. Mine had the base and the headlights and taillights worked. Heck, I still have the instructions sheet long after the kit disappeared!

    If I recall correctly, you may want to think about putting a heavier spring in the front suspension. The ones provided are relatively weak and make the front end sag after being displayed for a short amount of time.

    I'll be watching this build!
