It's funny how you can tell great modeling from the moment you see the car. And this is great, great modeling. Your pictures and description in the post sort of set us up for it but the Fotki series really tells the story. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. It's really an inspiration... ;)

Very cool. You did a great job on the build and few models of race cars actually get to be ON the car they are a model of. You should be proud of that one!

Thank you very much on the comments, I'm glad you guys like it, it's one of my favorite builds...Richie Evans was a great driver and won lots of races & championships in the modified series. Seeing the Camaro in the Talladega museum, it really made me want to build it regardless of the amount of bodywork needed to replcate it. I took alot of detail pic's of the car inside and out, I made the trip back exactly a year later with the finished model and it was cool to photograph the two together, best day ever!!.......Frank

Here is a replica I built of the late Richie Evans Camaro which sits in the Talladega Speedway Museum. I got to see the car in person and took some detail pic's of it so I can build it. There is no kit with fenders like this, so I used an old MPC Camaro kit as a starting point. The body was modified all over to replicate it as close as possible. I made the wheels in resin myself and the decals were custom made using pic's of the car. The stripes and numbers are painted on with an airbrush, stencils and fine line tape. After I was done with it I went back to the museum and photographed the model with the real car. I have the entire buildup of this car with all the modifications in my Fotki album if you would like to see more....Thanks for looking.................Frank
