  1. I loved the late 60's/very early 70's era of Trans-Am. Big time stars driving, factory participation (unofficial, of course!) and many iconic race tracks. You did a great job of capturing the era with your work.
  2. You did a nice job on the engine!! Smart decision NOT to use the kit supplies. There needs to be a special place in hell for the guy (or girl) that came up with the plastic spark plug wires!! I thought the Revell spark plug wires were bad!! I think I will end up buying some from ProTech before this is all done!
  3. I'll let you know how mine turn out. I will let the body sit for a while and work on the engine and frame before I proceed with decals.

The body was assembled, the seams filled and sanded, painted with two coats of Taimya fine white primer, resanded, two coats of of Tamiya AS-12 Bare metal silver and finally two coats of Taimya TS 52. I am not good with an air brush, so all coats were shot f
  6. I'm old enough to have actually seen the Petty's hauling their race car in the late 60's/early 70's (although I never saw them hauling this car) and you have absolutely nailed it!! Great job!!
  7. Great job on this whole package!! It turned out well!!
  8. Exceptional work and a fantastic paint job!!
  9. Excellent build!! I got to see this car run a few times. Butch was a multi-time USAC champion and his equipment was always well maintained. Yeah, I'm THAT OLD!!
  10. Love it!! Nice job!!
  11. That is VERY cool!! Nice job with the paint job and overall, it turned out beautiful!!
