Ted Musgrave Mopar Craftsman Nascar truck

Posted · Report post

Here is my first 2011 completed project. It is the Revell Mopar Craftsman Nascar truck built primarily out of the box with a few additions or changes. The ride height has been lowered to better the stance and I used a Modern Motorsports resin exhaust in place of the kit part. The decals are from JWTBM.

The truck looks great. Nice paint and the decals look like they went on well. Were those stock decals or aftermarket? I have always heard that the stock decals on the trucks are not very good.

Amazing . Lotsa detail . Just right . I know you won't get many comments as NASCAR has fallen out of favor in the Hobby World . What did it for me are two things ;

All makes sharing the same body . Why is it still called Stock Car Racing ? Two ...Jap Scraps competing . IMHO ..Really ?? Those aren't any better than anything else . Look at whom is making headlines for re-calls . I was an Industry Insider . Did you ever try to get replacement parts from Japan ? The costs of the parts and time involved to get them negate the fuel savings . Once again ..IMHO ..perception . I am allowed IMHO . Thanx ..

Ummm... wow.

Cool truck,you did a nice job and built this very cleanly.

Decals looks phenominal. Never got into NASCAR but always thought the trucks were the coolest.

The decals are aftermarket. They were from a company called Just Want to Build a Model. The decals may still be readily available on Ebay from time to time. They are awesome and went on great.

Thanks for the comments.
