Sweet looking build..Now with Salvino doing the Petty cars you can do Neil's Dodge and maybe the brothers can get a resin and copy the Magnum they used for a while..I remember Neil Bonnet driving one and winning with it..

Very cool build!  I was a huge fan of Neil Bonnett, but I don't remember this one at all.  Thanks!!

Neil was one of my favorites and this was one of the coolest liveries ever. I think it would still hold up today. Outstanding job.

I seldom reply to NASCAR models but gotta say it looks fantastic Wayne, and BTW I met and spoke briefly with Neil a couple of times and he was a very nice guy.

Looks great-did you have hood fitment issues with the air cleaner on this kit?

I shaved the top of the carb down to get the air cleaner lower.

When I did my Baker Olds I used a smaller air cleaner from another NASCAR kit and hollowed and thinned the inside. That was the only way to get the hood to sit flat.

Now there’s one you don’t see very often.  Very cool!  You really did a nice job on this, she looks great!

Beautifull build! My interest for nascars have been made greater of such builds as yours! They do look nice in the shelf! Btw have no relationship to nascar since borne and raised in Sweden.

That looks great Wayne. A very "lively" color scheme I'm not familiar with.
