A different kind of Petty car...

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Well, I finished another one. This is my version of a car that was driven by Ritchie Petty (Maurice's son). The car started off as the AMT Raybestos Thunderbird. I hated the paintjob on the box top, so I knew that I wanted to do something different with it. The kit was missing a couple of pieces so I made the missing wheel back and the rear end cooler pump out of resin. The decals were made by me and printed on clear decal paper. I also wired the engine.

Here was my goal:

Great model. I don't ever remember that car. Must be Ritchie was kind of like Kerry E?

Thanks, guys. He only raced four races, so it's understandable that you may not remember this car.

I realy like this one - I like that you thought outside the box to create a petty car.
