  1. Got a little bit done today, detail painted the wheels, assembled the wheels and tires and installed them, finished the radiator and hoses. Ride height isn't as low in the front as I thought I had it, but I don't want to break the front wheels back off, the next one will be lower for sure. Now just have to wait on the weather so I can clear the body.
  2. Thanks, I actually flat cleared the tires so they are protected.
  3. This is my progress so far on the current Revell Ford nascar kit. Clint Boywer Mobil 1 scheme from 2017. Decals are powerslide from Mike's decals, paint is tamiya pure white and tamiya brilliant blue. A few details added; plug wires, engine decals on the valve covers (also powerslide), seat extensions and roll bar pad next to seat, a couple cage bars that were left out, decals to the wheels and tires (again powerslide), front splitter, carbon fiber decal on the dash, ecm wiring, steering wheel radio button and cable, and the ride height will be lowered. I'm waiting on some decent weather to clear the body, gotta finish the detail painting on the wheels, then install the windows and it'll be under glass. Thanks for looking.
  4. That looks great! Congrats to Joey on the championship. Way better he got it than Busch or Truex, they're both kind of cry-babies in my opinion. Again great job on the model, I've been using it and you're other modern cars as a reference for my own build. (hope you don't mind haha)
  5. That's good to know, I just picked up this decal sheet and the revell #10 as the donor. I'm gonna try and add the round of 4 playoff colors and markings on mine.
  6. It looks like the red sections all matched up ok, how is the fit on those large red decals? Did they need much modification?
  7. I'd go with the ts-49 bright red, I did a spray test on a white plastic spoon and it looks really close to the color on the snap-on #2 car. If you have the paint already, try it yourself and see. Hope this helps.
  8. I'm so curious how the large decals (the red portion over the front fenders and on the front bumper) are going to lay down, even with some kind of decal set they look like they're gonna be a bearcat.
  9. Think this might help, found in the aftermarket section.
  10. That looks so mean. Love all aspects of the build, just top notch all the way.
  11. That color actually looks really good, I'm usually not a fan of that shade but it works on this, Barefoot Ronnie Pace would be proud. The build is killer as always keep it up.
  12. I just realized that I didn't post any pics of the interior complete. So here's a couple.
  13. Very cool to see this pic for reference, I was actually going off of another 1:12 scale corvette build I found on this forum. Thank you and the cables on my build will be simple to change. Again, thank you to everyone else for the comments and following along, will have the next update soon.
  14. Not much of an update on the vette. Just finished getting the body cleaned up of imperfections and mold lines, then shot 2 coats of duplicolor filler primer on it. Gonna paint the panel lines black to help with painting, then "block" it with 1000 grit so the black goes down smooth.
