    It would definitely be in the /MSP class. AA with the big bown engine. I don't know if there was a wheelbase restriction. Altered required a 25% engine setback. That Vespa was built and run as a bracket car. It used to run at Rockford back in the late 70s through the 80s.

    Milliput or other epoxy putties are best when there is a certain thickness to it. They don't like to be feather-edged too much. I use it for building up shapes, filling larger gaps and holes. Use regular spot putty for blends and featheredging. Spot putty is merely thickened primer.
    If your epoxy putty does not cure it is because of poor mixing or cold temps killing the cure. It does not "dry", it cures from a  chemical reaction between the two parts. I use epoxy on resin, plastic, Renshape, metals, etc. It's all good. Use a thin layer of spot putty over your "ghosting" problem. The hot chemicals in the paint just raised the grain of the plastic where the trim was.
     
    Hope this helps.

    That looks like some fun building.

    I built several out of the box and they were really easy to build and looked great without any tweaking.

    Sweat the details and fit, Man! Take your time!

    My mistake. I was thinking the 2 door sedan was a sedan delivery. Wasn't even thinking of the panel truck. Getting old! I knew the Tom Daniels thing was not accurate at all.

    AMT had the Vega sedan delivery funny car. It was a bit out of scale on the large side, though. A true sedan delivery will be a passenger car chassis with a single hinged door on the back. Tailgates, double doors just don't cut it. Then it is a wagon without windows or a panel truck. There are no T sedan deliveries. The only true sedan delivery kits in 1/24/25 are the Revell Model A, MPC 32 Ford, Revell 37 Ford, Monogram 39 Chevy, AMT 40 Ford, Galaxy 46 Chevy, Revell 53 Chev, Monogram Tom Daniels 60 Chev. MPC did a 1/32 34 Ford.  I may have missed one. The Heller MB is a panel truck. The Revell Buttera T is a phantom. The Falcon and Vega aren't true Sedan deliveries. Probably 2/3rds of the Resin ones are phantoms.

    Cool stuff, Dude! Looking forward to seeing it at GSL in a year and a half!

    Hi Wayne,
    Long time no see. Very glad you are back at it. This project is super cool. I love it when someone who knows darg racing builds an awesome car like this.
    Cheers,

    Nostalgia. Had a double when I was a kid and not one of those 1/20 scale Sizzlers. Both are very cool and I have built both since.

    Yikes. Looks like Straightline will be the killer class at GSL in '19.

    Pretty low, Harry.

    many of these gull wingers remind me of the old saying, "Just because you can does not mean you should!"
  14. Modelmartin added a post in a topic OK this is kool: 3D printed 1/24 VW Notchback Kustom   

    The Monogram Sand Crab, released later as the L'il Van has a T3 motor in it.
  15. Modelmartin added a post in a topic What did you see on the road today?   

    I once saw some broken chunks of granite counter top laying in the center of the Freeway! About 3 miles later I passed the guy hauling the rest of the counter to the job site. He didn't appear to know that about a third of it was broken off and laying on the highway. Ooops.
