Nice job on this and you pretty much have to use aftermarket tires as the ones in the kit are usually warped. What paint did you use?

I used to Tamaya fluorescent red with no clearcoat.

Oh and the kit tires are Good Years too. The resin tires came with side wall decals.

Here is a cool video about the turbine cars.

 

Thanks for posting that. Those things sound wicked. I would love to have witnessed them run in person. Some nice views too. The clean styling of the 56 is simply gorgeous.

I built this for a club theme. 
I picked this kit up years ago and got it because I just wanted the tractor.

It has aftermarket resin tires & decals from IndyCal
