She's at least improving this year. 40th, 36th, 21st, 18th, 14th so far.
Why is it a point against her that she took some advice from a seasoned racer and improved her position? It's pretty obvious she doesn't have the amount of experience some of her fellow racers do. If she can take advice from Harvick and do better, doesn't that point to an ability to learn, process, and provide results?
I have nothing agaisnt Danica and wish her well. I think she does herself a disservice with all the crass commercials, but it's her career and her choices and she has every right to put money in her bank account in the way she sees fit. I do think at some point she'll regret selling herself as an attractive woman (IMO) instead of a race car driver, but she's young and if she's going to make money on her looks now's the time to do it. That's capitalism for ya.
Count me in as hoping one day she wins a race and drives her haters absolutely bonkers.
I built the original release as a Christine. My personal opinion is that once built, painted like Christine, and placed on a shelf, the kit looks fine. I know full well about the body issues but IMO many of those issues go away when painted and presented as Christine. I like to keep in mind that the movie Christine was a driver and not a trailer queen.
I liked building the kit, even though I ran into many self-made errors along the way. I may build another and try to make it a bit cleaner.
I've used it as well and like it, but my best results have come after decanting some into a jar and spraying it through an airbrush. For whatever reason when I spray it right from the can I get a ton of bubbles in it that need to be sanded out. Probably user error more than any flaw in the paint itself.
