    Thanks. I donated that Caddy to a Kustom Kulture Charity auction last winter so I think I just have to build another and almost identical one for myself someday. Almost means that this time I' go with radars and wide whites.

    I´m still here, work taking too much of my time so no progress on my GMC Motorhome yet.

    I´m still here, nothing has happened to my GMC Motorhome since my last post.
    Sometimes life does get in the way.
    In my mind I have already planned all modifications needed so now I just have to build it.

    Sorry but we haven´t got any videos yet but I am planning to shoot some and share on youtube when we are having our next race on our model club.
    Last Sunday we held a test race at my place, you can find action shots from it on our FB- page.
    There were AMT Promo- based ´Vettes, an amt ´62 Buick and Monogram ´58 T- Bird on the track.

    If you are on facebook you can find lots of pics of these modelrally racers over there.
    Just search " malliralli " from FB.
    Malliralli = Modelrally in finnish.

    Those pages are in finnish put look at photos / albums on that page.

    Thanks guys!
    That "bombshell Betty"Buick was my inspiration.
    While many of my projects are complicated and time taking these quick curbsiders are really fun to build.

    This is nice, like already said, it would be nice as it is now.
    It really doesn´t need more detailing.

    That build goes really over the edge!
    I appreciate the amount of work you have put into this build and like those handpainted graphics a lot.

    Personally I prefer more oldschool lowrider but I´m impressed from your work.

    1970 Mad Max Pontiac
    Now this is kinda mix up of many kits.This could easily pass as a mad max- effected curbside model though it is infact a Modelrally race car in Modified class, build strictly according to rules and regulations of Modelrally.

    Modelrally is quite brainless but seriously fun sport which includes hitting these totally brush- painted and fully decaled race cars with croquet mallet one racer at time in order to finish first. Race cars race on a track of course. The track lines are drawn on sand with a stick or drawn on asphalt with various methods.

    Modelrally is a sport that me and my modelmaking buddies cooked up and it includes many unintented crashes and damages to race cars.

    This one was fun to build!

    Enought with talking, on to the pics:







    That lip on the rear is a hitting shield made of thin metal, demanded by the rules.
    Weird stuff.

    Rear bumper is done with Kosutte gin san- metallizer powder over a light blue basecoat. Actually it doesn´t look blue when seen in nature. Of course comparison to bmf work next to it makes different shade to pop out.
