I'm a hot rod builder through and through, but sometimes I have to 'cleanse the palette" so to speak and do a box-stock build. So here it is, a Revell black widow kit with decals from Mike's decals. All Lacquer Tamiya paint with Testors Extreme Clear.  Polished it with 3M Perfect-it 3-stage polish.  I got in a hurry with the clear, so the decals wrinkled a bit, but it still looks OK.

Awesome build, Dan. Everything about this model looks great. I appreciate that you kept the kit wheels and tires. When people use the 1/24 scale 57through 59 ppp wheels and tires,  the model ends up looking just not quite right when compared to reference pictures of the real cars.  Has that monster truck look about it.

Thanks man! I actually bought the PPP wheels/tires but didn’t use them because they didn’t look right.

Excellent job Dan !!  A bunch of guys always complain about the inaccuracies of this kit but it sure does build up nice as you have proven with your great model .

It sure is a nice Black Widow but the engine bay is beyond nice!  That borders on photo-realism!  To think it is all done with is amazing.  Congratulations on a beautiful build.

Cheers

Alan
