  1. Here is my latest. Neil Bonnett 79 Armor All Olds using a Salvinos Grey Ghost kit and Powerslide decals.
  2. Out of the ashes rises an old build that never got finished. I pulled it from the box a few months back and the more I looked at it the more I decided that I wasn't happy with the second paint job. So, once again, I started over. Before repaint I made the hood opening smaller and then came up with yet another paint scheme different from the last two. Now it's time to get this one finished so I don't have to change my mind again. All of the decals are on and clear coat added today.
  3. Casey, Jeff Faris and Dave Holmes have been working with Atlantis ever since a hint of this reissue was talked about. They are doing an entirely new tooling for the tires along with possibly a few other parts, if I read correctly. Also, Chuck Boerner is doing the decals for the kits.
  4. Almost 40 years of building and this is my first completed Richard Petty build. I used the Salvinos 83 kit with the vermilion decals. Other than lowering the ride height it is built straight out of the box.
  5. Currently on the bench. Out of the box build of Salvinos Petty 83 Pontiac. I am also using the vermilion underlayment decals. They are a bit of a challenge to work with and require plenty of patience and setting solution but well worth the effort when completed. So far I have the body painted, decaled and the tires and wheels and suspension are installed and the ride height is set.
  6. Here's some Mooneyes dragster inspiration. https://public.fotki.com/1320wayne/model_research-1/top-fuel/mooneyes-dragster/
  7. I don't know for sure but without the research my best guess is that they used the same 355ci combination that was being used by Jerry Churchill and Bob Kesolowski in their ARCA Chrysler Lebaron's in the late 80's.
  8. Chrysler powerplant. Not sure of the displacement. Earnhardt competed in multiple years that they ran the Daytona body including 93 when he took over the Kulwicki ride after his death. He drove the car but left Kulwicki's name on the side.
  9. After 7 years off and on this one is finally complete.
  10. More engine bay details. Radiator installed and added plumbing. And, the grill screen installed. I also discovered that I made a huge mistake that has to be fixed. With limited research when I started the build I never realized that these cars didn't use a fuel break. They filled the tanks by lifting the rear hatch. So now I have to see if I can create a plug for the side of the body where I created the fuel break without ruining the body.
  11. Engine is installed and the exhaust is done.
  12. Back to work on this. Rear glass is installed along with riveted decal framework. I also added the taillight blackout along with the window trim using black BMF.
  13. If I remember correctly he used to ship all of his selling stock, in advance, in steamer trunks so he didn't have to carry anything with him.
  14. Thanks for all of the compliments. It was fun build.
