Beautiful model of a very significant car. Great job, John!

The Piedmont-Childress-Rudd collaboration essentially saved RCR from early oblivion. Rudd was recruited because Piedmont wanted a younger driver for the #3 car if they were to sponsor it. They felt RCR's driver was 'too old' and didn't project youth and competitiveness. That 'old' driver? Dale Earnhardt.

Rudd had a successful season in the Piedmont 3 car, and the Piedmont deal financially rejuvenated RCR. Then RCR cut Rudd and brought the 'old' guy and his new sponsor ~ Wrangler ~ back to the RCR # 3 car.

Beautiful build of my favorite Nascar driver's car; always thought that Ricky Rudd deserved more credit than he got during his racing career.

Great model John. Rudd was a charger throughout his career.

Very sharp and pristine build my friend. Wow!!! Was the body just polished and spit shined or did you paint it ? If so what white did you use to pain this body. That white Is absolutely beautiful.
