time because the CLEAR would be too brittle )" King Richard version ? 102030-11939_zpsrt8nev8k.jpg Yes the whole body was clear. :D

And every ones favorite a6473b7138774e7dea8a21_m__98794.14103066 Now here's the thing, aside from the body, wheels, decals and the blowers and side pipes on the Street Machines, they're all the same underneath. :lol: Same Chassis, but just the same a whole lot to work with and in a BIG scale so's ya can see what yer doin'. :P

Last one , same as the "Clear" body Petty kit but no clear ( "It's too Brittle" :huh: ) product.jpg and it's "Loaded with Features and Big On Details". Which indeed it is. :D

you could make a few different cars from this keeping within the NASCAR theme.Mario_Rossi_Blue22.jpg and I believe, some one may have made some resin parts to do these.1969-dodge-charger-daytona-71-nascar.jpg

do they make decals for these

Yes they do, try Dave Van ( he's a member here ) he has decals for a number of cars. Also the resin conversion for the Dukes kit is at Resin Motor Replicas, this will change the dukes charger into a Daytona Charger. You can try Lobo Graphics for decals as well.

I think the black street machine came before the red one, my brother had the black one for a while before I got the red one. The black one had the same style wheels as the nascar version.
