Red Byron was the first Nascar Strickly Stock champion in 1949. Strickly Stock was the forerunner to what is now known as the Monster Energy Cup series. The kit I used was the Revell 1950 olds kit. I did some modifications to the body to make it look like a 49. The build took 105 hours to complete. The paint is Model Masters Acryl polished and final coated with future floor finish which is now known as Pledge Floor Care.

J.C. I use a wide brush barely overlapping each pass.

also make sure you don't use too much or it will run and pile up due to gravity. Future is now sold as Pledge Floor Care.
