  1. “Not trying to be facetious, but every kit out there can be a dirt/short track car. Just let your imagination run wild, use some NASCAR chassis if available, or scratchbuild whatever you need. There are plenty resin suppliers of engine parts, wheels & tires, and almost any other part you might need. Now I realize you did mention kits, but unfortunately for us short track fans they are really few and far between. Just as an example here are a couple of regular kits I built into short-track.” I totally get that. It’s been many years since I’ve built. I would love to see a work in progress showing some tips and tricks. I am thinking of trying my hand at a dirt late model but am not sure how to proceed.
  2. Awesome looking cars. I wish there were more dirt kits/short track kits out there.
  3. Looks awesome. This is from when cars had character! Great job.
  4. Great overall, but that paint work is gorgeous.
  5. Outstanding work. At this point, I stop calling them models and start calling them replicas! Neighbor of mine had one just like this when I was a kid. Huge inside! Ran like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH till it warmed up
  6. Very realistic! Looks like you could get in and drive off.
  7. One of my favorite cars! Good job.
  8. Strong work. Very realistic.
  9. That’s looks great. Very clean; great color choice
  10. Looks great. Outstanding paint job!
  11. Very nice engine detail. It brings a very realistic look to a great build. Very well done.
  12. Thanks for the responses. I will give the decals a try. When I saw “Shabo” mentioned it reminded me. That’s exactly what they were.
  13. Hey guys. I’ve been lurking around the forum for years but rarely post. I am going to start building after a couple years of being lazy and thought I would complete a couple old nascar kits I have stored away. When I was building before, I would use dry transfers on the smooth side of the tire. They came in yellow and white as well as Hosier and Goodyear. I can’t find them now and wondered if anyone knew where I could find them. They always came out perfect for me (at least much better than I could paint). Thanks.
  14. I love to see great work like this. I used to watch short track cars like this one when I was a kid in South Boston Virginia. I need to try my hand at a few of these. Great work! Like stepping into the past.
  15. love the dirt racers. I wish there were more kits of dirt cars for those of us who are not as creative as you are. These look really good.

    Great paint job and exterior detailing; but what I really like is the way you handled the interior. I can never quite get the flocking to have that "real carpet" look, but this is spot on! Great work.
