    1989 Taurus
    I built this as a close replica to a 1996 Grand-Am i derbied last summer. It was my first attempt with using wires to make things more realistic too.

    Joie Chitwood Replicas
    I have been a thrill show fan since i was little. I have recently been building some replica cars from the Chitwood show. I spent a long time in photoshop coming up with decals as close as possible to the real cars. The 74 camaro was an actual chitwood model that was pieced together from a couple models (it now has more accurate decals, see first photo). The mid 90s camaro, 80's camaros, and 97 corvette were promo cars that i painted and created decals for. the cannon jump truck was made by ertl. I am going on tour with Tonny Petersen's Hell Drivers show this summer and will have my builds put on hold. But when i return to the bench i will be building many other cars from thrill shows of the past. Also i will be building the entire chitwood line up from the mid 90's including a new cannon jump from styrene.

    Thank you for all the comments everyone. I am going to Redo the pavement so its seem less and some more touch up stuff. I have been thinking about doing the inside as well but i'm in no rush for that yet.

    Charlie - I live in sandwich so its quite the drive but its something i might have to make it to one day to check out

    Any suggestions on buliding materials to use would be greatly appreciated. I am very new to the diorama aspect of model building.
