1969 Richard Petty Talladega

Recommended Posts

ASince completing my 92 and 64 Petty cars, I decided to dig this one out. I have never built one of these Polar Lights kits. I'm not tobsure about them. I had started this one years ago as well and thought it was time to finish it. Painted this one with Testors Big Bad Blue Laqcuer as well. Using Testors Dark Blue in the small bottle for suspension parts. I have a set of Powerslide decals for it, just need to decide which ones I want to use.

Yes, this is looking good so far!  These Polar Lights Nascar Ford kits can be tricky to build, especially if you are putting that 429 motor under the hood.  The following website-link is from a modeler who has some excellent build-suggestions to get things to fit together better on these kits; check it out:

Look under his "TIPS" tab on that website page.
