    Thanks guys for the kind words.  Ron, the paint is Kustom Colors Aquarius Shift over Black and you can see Green, Blue and different colors depending on the light and how it hits the model.  I love this paint.  Dan

    Nice build Bruce.  I like your build.  I agree about the decals.  Like I said in my thread, a friend of mine made mine for me.  I do have to find the rest of the sponsor deals to finish mine.  I read somewhere that Jim Reed ran the white wheels on the left side and the black ones on the right.  Dan

    Thanks Bruce.  That was my favorite time for NASCAR.  From the 50's to the early 70's.  After that, I lost interest in the 80's when they took front wheel drive cars and changed to rear wheel drive.  It just isn't the same anymore.  Dan

    Thanks guys.  The engine is just the stock flat head.  I didn't want to change that and just left it alone.  Dan

    Great to know this John.  I have seen pictures of this car with the GMC dealership on the side also.  I have to get some of the other decals to finish this or make my own.  Thanks for the kind words.  Dan

    A friend of mine has an Alps printer and he made them for me.  He has a business and it's Red Pegasus Decals.  He does mostly airplane decals but because of me he's starting to do car stuff.  Dan

    This is the AMT 36 Ford that I built as a custom.  It has 57 Plymouth hub caps, banjo steering wheel and is painted with kustom colors Aquarius Shift over Black.  I also lowered the rear end a scale three inches and used the drop front axle.  I hope ya like it.  I had fun buildin it.    Dan

    62 Catalina 2dr sedan ?
    Does anyone make the 62 Catalina 2dr sedan in resin? If there is one, how good is it?  I want to build Royal Pontiac's drag car to compete against the Knafel Pontiac's car that I built.  Thanks for any help.  Dan
