Ritchie Panch Torino

Recommended Posts

Another excellent build, Tim . I almost missed this one. They turned my Favrotes  list link  nascar to nascar wip. I had to add another link to my favorites. I bet I'm not the only one who missed this change in the forum.

I kinda like it once you get used to it.

You should have a lot more comments. I dont think a lot of people realize the change. And they are missing your finished build.

I kind of like separating the build from the finished product as well. We should encourage multiple pictures of finished modes so people can see the whole car, chassis, engines and interiors.

Nice clean build....great stance. 

Really nice to see someone use the Panch decals I put in the MK kit. 

I put them in there because I met Richie a few times....nice guy. 

Thanks

Really nice! I like the subjects you pick, there always something very unique and different!! You can only look at so many Petty and Earnhardt builds. LOL

Look at any given time there was only a handful of superstars like Pearson Petty and Yarborough. The rest of the field that those guys had to beat was these guys like Ritchie and the other guys cars I build . These guys were the heart and soul of the sport. It’s a lot more challenging to build these cars. The research is hard. But I love the search for pictures and info.The best part of the obscure cars is they usuayhad cooler paintwork than the big guys. They didn’t have a giant sponsor dictating how they want the car to look.

That was the good 'ol days of racin'! Researching is as much fun as building to me. I love way you come up with these decals!!!

Some of these cars have been in the works so to say for years. Seriously. Six years to find a good enough picture of this car to do the mural on the sail panel.

This one deserves a thread of its own. Very excellent build and graphics.

I'm not Tim.....but the Panch decals were included in the Model King issue of the old MPC 1972 Gran Torino kit done back 2008 or there about.  Each of the MK kits came with decals for 4 version or more.  The Torino came with the Panch, Dunlevy, Bud Moore and a few fantasy schemes.

Who is doing the decals on these?-the decals make the build!

The last couple cars I’ve done Speedway did the decals for me a while back. I have decals waiting for me all the time. I probably got 35 sheets in waiting.

He did my Grand Am and Thirkettle Buick decals but said he is not doing custom work any more. Bummer.

You probably did. My memory aint what it used to be.  If you could post the link i'd like to view all the shots again just in case I missed it.

Do a search for Maynard Troyer Torino. I can’t get the link thing to work.
