'53 Studebaker Dirt Track racer...


Recommended Posts

Built this one several years ago.

I started by opening up the wheel openings on Revell's Miss Deal funny cay body and

mounting it to the chassis and running gear from MPC's Rat Trap Vega dirt modified kit...

Body was painted Minneapolis Moline yellow, with the chassis being  finished with Testors gloss red enamel...

Numbers and sponsor marking were sourced from several Slixx  decal sheets.

Unfortunately this model was destroyed shortly after completion....

(I was getting ready to put it back in the display case after a show, when I tripped over the cat  and fell on the model, essentially crushing it)

Maybe someday I'll build another.
