My very first kit completion. Have alot of areas I need to improve on but Im content with this being my first ever. Airbrushing needs a bit of work and a few of the decals are wrinkled. Excited though for the next build which will be a 1991 Davey Allison. Please give any advice on what I can do to make the next one better. I know the photos are poor quality but thats what I get with a cellular phone camera :(

Nice job for your first. Decals on these cars are tough, but the more you practice the better they look. Keep at it!

That looks really good ......... especially for your first build ........... these cars can be tough to complete, especially because of the paint schemes and decals ............ really good work (and welcome to the world of Nascar nuts :blink: :blink: )

lol Thanks Old Coyote. Right now Nascar kits are all I have in the stash other then a couple of Indy and Sprint Cars. I would eventually like to get into some Aircraft, Tanks and even some Miniatures. This scale model building is very addicting. I believe I'm going to have to go through a week or so period of not building as I dropped and damaged my freekin Airbrush already bending the needle tip. I gave my current kit a base coat today and so far it appears to be fine, so hoping it will work ok until the replacement parts get here. Being on a fixed income and SSDI really stinks because to buy anything new I have to wait until the first of the month during payday lol. I went from making 68K a year to 15K because of the back surgeries and them putting me on Disability. So I use building scale models as a way to occupy my time.
