Okay I’ve been in a slump lately and wanted to try to mess around with the COT Snap kits, I learned a lot with this first build and hopefully when I do another I will have some of the issues worked out. This is my Dale Jr 2012 Michigan winner, the Dark Knight Mountain Dew Scheme. The decals are Powerslide, paint is Tamiya Ts-14, with Tamiya Clear. I took a parts box and built an engine and detailed out the interior, scratch built the seat, and used rims and tires from a 2003 kit. Not my best work but will look nice on the shelf.

Thanks Mark, I’m doing a detailed 2009 Keselowski Talladega winner and Jr’s 2012 Daytona 500 car.

Is that Brad's first cup win car?  Thats a beauty from what I remember. One of those iconic cars connected to a lot of historical nascar stuff.

Yes sir it is, the 09 from Phoenix Racing built by Hendrick for Keselowski to race

I did not know Hendrick had built it. No wonder it was so fast. That was Brad's payback car to Carl Edwards for taking him out at Atlanta. I think Brad got the best of that deal. I believe that was also the beginning of the dreaded tandem racing that Nascar had to eventually outlaw. It was kinda bogus watching pairs of cars racing around the track.
