    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. 

Ken Schraeder M/C

Hello from Middle Earth

Current NASCAR project, a slab-side M/C driven by one of the 'unsung heroes', Mr. Ken Schraeder:  Not too difficult to tell which one from the last couple of pics, and I'm sure somebody will guess it pretty quickly. As it sits just now, it's got the best ride-height I've ever achieved and the plastic is glass smooth. Even after the Plastikote dark grey primer the finish is still like the surface of the mirror on the Hubble Telescope !!

Stay tuned, more soon.

After I posted the photos yesterday, I went back in to the 'cave' in the evening and shot a couple of quick coats of Tamiya glossy black on the lower sides of the body. This morning I brushed on two coats of Klear/Future to seal it and about two hours later masked it all off using photos of all the 1999 #33's as reference.

Then took a deep breath and fired a couple of light(ish) coats of Tamiya TS-21 'Gold'. Personally I'm overjoyed with the result but would appreciate your input, guys.

Super job on this one Ian. The chassis is identical to my Lumina build with the Dave Marcis #41 I'm just about to finish. (Kellogs Corn Flakes)

Didn't realise I'd not posted completed pics... so here they are !

Great Powerslide decals really made all the difference on this one, absolutely superb to work with. Easily my best NASCAR build to date. Thanks for all the encouragement along the way, folks. Lookout for a 'Beer Car' posting in just a few minutes.
