This was a fun build,..decals were old and yellow so a new set from indycals.com ,. and first time using Future (or whatever it's called now) for a clear coat..

I brush on the Future to cover..let set overnight,. decalled it and brushed on another Future coat within an hour.

Body panel paints are Duplicolor,...Chrome Yellow, and High Temp Caliper paint CSP732 Bright Blue.

Stripped all chrome and gloss black Duplicolor and Alclad chromed the wheels

Added some wiring, removed the front suspension to ease painting, masking, and decalling, then drilled, and pinned.

All in all quick and easy,..well except for the turbo piping, that was an Elmer's slow dry hour, to get right...

I didn't use the crash test dummy that comes with the kit.

Thanks for looking Q,C&C's appreciated

Cheers

That looks fantastic! Great job. Love those Indy cars. I have a stalled Unser Jr. car somewhere.

Beautiful!  Those kits are not easy to get together, great details.  I love to see open-wheel cars on here, well done.

That's a beauty. I too like the Indy cars. One of my earlier efforts was the MPC Rutherford MacLaren. I'd like to take a shot at that one again now that I'm older and wiser.

this was Michael Andretti's in 1988

Rahall got onboard with Kraco later..I think 1990

Thanks everyone for commenting..this was as close to "out of box" as I get...😊

Nice work, Bruce.  We all need a relaxing change of subject once in a while.

That is exactly what this was Curt, thanks

...I just wanted to build an uncomplicated kit, mask and paint and decals are what I really wanted to do

Great job!  I have a few of these that I should move toward the front of the line.  I can only hope that mine turn out as well as yours did.
