    Nice job!

    That is awesome! It's definitely a beaut'! I took an ASA camaro and turned it into a 'fantasy street stock dirt car'. I used to have a 91' camaro that I wanted to build into a racecar and race at my local track but rules wouldn't allow it so here's what I believe she'd look like after a tough night.

    Thanks guys! For the weathering I just used a black wash... Let it dry a little ... Then I lightly wet a brush and went over it... Then wiped off excess water and wash... I think it took me a couple of tries before I was satisfied with my work. Hope that helps!

    And for the floorboard covering I used masking tape, painted it white, then went over it with a black wash

    Since this is the 1963 impala, it had the Chevy 427 "mystery motor" big block
    Here are a couple reference pictures I'm using...


    However this one doesn't have any breathers.... I was mainly using this as a header reference ....



    These are of the actual car

    Thanks guys! I hope my work can do this car justice, and live up to your expectations. I just got some more pictures of my latest work. I'll also probably be posting the reference pictures that I'm going off of also. Here are some of the scratch built roll cage, weathered seat and dash, rear trunk work, and floorboard covering.

    Ok so here is a project that I am very excited about! Building Junior Johnson's 1963 Holly Farms Impala. I took a 63' impala kit and am pretty much building the racecar from the ground up. I don't have too many pictures yet of the progress but here are a few...


    This was my first ever attempt to cut a door off anything.

    Thanks everyone for the warm comments! I'm getting back into modeling after a little hiatus.... Just wondering what is the best 'Free' site to link pictures to on the forum these days? Or is that something they allow you to do anymore? I'd like to post my current WIP that I'm excited to show you guys and would like some encouragement.

    Well it's not NASCAR but its what a lot of these guys cut their teeth doing. I gotta say I underestimated this kit, I'm used to doing NASCAR kits and this one was actually more of a challenge but I enjoyed it! I've never used decal set or decal sol but I really wish I had it for this kit... The decals on the wing was a challenge. Thanks for looking

    Glue help!
    Hi all, for my models I usually use a fast setting model super glue 'Extreme Power : Thick' but it causes a "frosting" effect which is a problem on painted pieces... Can anyone point me in the right direction for some good quality glue that won't frost on painted parts? Thanks a lot
