  1. This was the result of my best efforts at Roadkill's 1970 "Off Road Challenger" and I'm only 15 so I'm still improving on my models. I know this is not a slot car forum but I consider this a mix of modeling and slot cars. The car still includes a full interior and engine. The car runs quite good around the track and I couldn't be happier with it. Thanks, TR
  2. This will be my first try at a replica of a known car. I am a big fan of Roadkill and Roadkill garage so building the Crusher Camaro was at the top of my list. Wish me luck! I will be using the AMT kit as a base with liberal use of my parts box. I will post up my progress so far..
  3. Soooooo a question about paint..... The yellow on the hood and the yellow on the body are different shades. I put another layer of paint on the body to try and even it out, as that's the lighter of the two. What else can I do to improve the look, and make it look really glossy??
  4. Hey guys. back with another project to show! This time I'm doing my favorite car from the Hot Rod series Roadkill. I've never attempted a car like this before with all the body damage and faux wear and tear so this is a fun change of pace for me. Any tips from you experts on cool weathering techniques? Here's the body so far... Freshly painted. WAY too clean for the general mayhem lol Post wear and tear from the body meeting the basement concrete floor lol I think it's turning out nice so far!
  5. I meant to post this story about a week ago but forgot... So on August 16th I was at an antique machinery show checking out some old tractors and stuff, and I felt like that morning it was going to be a good day. I put on my NMRA World Finals @ Beech Bend raceway shirt and headed over to the show. While at the show I was wandering thru the flea market they had set up, and a guy had some old models for sale. So I picked up an old '54 Chevy "Hot Rod" edition for $20. After the show I went home and I intended to weld the cowl on to my '88 Mustang project. I was sitting around winding down from the day at the show out in the hot weather when a friend of mine posted on my facebook that the guys from Roadkill were on their way down to Bowling Green, KY to Beech Bend Raceway (I ironically had that shirt on) and that they were passing thru Cincinnati on the way from the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit! They were to arrive in about an hour and a half, so I jumped up and hopped in my truck and ran over to Springdale where they were making a pit stop! There was already a welcome committee there waiting! Then..... They pulled in... Driving their new Dodge Charger Hellcat dubbed "General Maintenance". This was the Charger they drove in the episode where they thrashed the Charger, Challenger, and Viper on the motocross track! Here's David Freiburger, after he ran inside to eat some tacos, talking to the crowd thanking them for showing up and he started passing out stickers and signing autographs And here's Mike Finnegan signing autographs and talking to people as well So I snapped some pics with the guys, they were super cool and very nice and total car guys. Very willing and happy to talk to anyone and everyone Mike loves v8 jet boats... and so he gravitated towards the owner of this thing The owner of the burrito restaurant that invited them down also had a beautiful Lark wagon and so they hopped in it for a picture with him Then they had to get going so they hopped back in their Hellcat and said their goodbyes and thank yous, and took off! So during the meet and greet I remembered I had that model car I bought at the tractor show earlier, and I grabbed it from my truck and they were gracious enough to autograph the box for me. David even said "wow, I remember when they first started making these things!" And of course, I had to come away with some merch too!
