Kurtis Midget

Recommended Posts

This was one of the models I was most excited to build when I found out they made it, I remember as a kid (not actually that long ago) they used to have a bunch of the vintage cars follow the NST series through Oregon/Washington as a support class to the Sprints, it was really neat to get to see these cars racing in person. This is my second attempt with this car, the first attempt didn't turn out so well, so into a paint stripping bath it went. I made most of the decals for this one, I used my dad as an inspiration for the hood, it's his initials and the name of the railroad company he worked for. I have another one of these I can't wait to get out and get together! Hope you guys enjoy the pictures.

Beautiful job on this Midget, and perfect tow vehicle. The detailing of the Midget is so well done it looks very realistic. The Ford pick up is perfect as a stock work horse.

Very nice and good job on the decals. Did you build the truck too?

Great build. I especially like the graphics. Excellent color chooices and the technique of using a red and yellow fine check pattern to simulate gold works very well indeed.

Great job! Very similar to an idea I had. The only difference was the tow vehicle would be a beater and the race car would look way better than the truck. Most of my 1:1 race cars looked way better than the tow vehicle. :D

Thanks everyone! The truck is just a diecast that I've had for awhile but the trailer had Ford hubcaps so I figured it would be perfect for towing the midget.

Nice midget, and the tow truck might be a diecast but it is at least very fitting.
