2005 Kurt Busch Crown Royal Finished!

This one took me a while. I started this back in March of 05. Yeah, it's been a while! I had originally planned on making this a Carl Edwards car but after I got the decals I couldn't NOT do this one. The Bud Shootout version is my favorite, with the gold numbers.

For modifications, I : Sanded the lower grill off, opened the cowl vent (and wish I hadn't, as I did a poor job of it) and used a Mike's Scale Speed Shop resin dashboard. It's just a repop of the 06-07 Chevy dash but it's better then just cutting off the igniton boxes from the frame and gluing them on top of the dash like I had been doing.

I also did the lugnuts diffrently then usual, in that I usually leave them silver, but I picked them out with a pinkish pen.

Decals are JWTBM. Used Slixx to correct the Pennzoil which were printed badly.

I do plan to do regular and Relief versions eventually as well.

Oh yeah, this is my 75th completed NASCAR model :)

Yeah, I have to put another coat of flat clear on the tires. Too uneven for one coat.

Great build. I truly admire Nascar builds because of the decaling work involved. Wonderful work.
