Johan Petty Superbird

Recommended Posts

I bought this model on ebay from USA. The wheels were too small, the decals were dust and the wheelopenings where wrong, but it is a SUPERBIRD. It also stand much too tall in the front.

I grinded away the exhaust, fixed the wheelopenings, added details to the suspension, made a quickfilleropening and detailed the engineroom and interior. Ihavn´t put on the sponsordecals yet because I want that "right out of the store"-look.

I built the daytona back in 1971 out of an MPC box. That one was for real and I built i right out of the box. Now I become happy every time I look at those two "winged Wonders".

VERY nice and clean Tomas! Leave it to Johan to make the best bodies of that car! Monogram's version never looked right to me. I have one in my stash to rebuilt someday------I've got a Daytona too that could use some company! ;)

Maybe it's your lighting, but that color doesn't look even close to "Petty Blue"... :huh:
