1991(3) Monogram #2 Rusty Wallace Miller Genuine Draft Winston Cup


Recommended Posts

This was released in 1991. By this time, the good parents had convinced manufacturers anything that could be considered a toy such as a model kit like this one. Could no longer have anything with tobacco or alcohol advertising on them. Thus, it was released with Rusty's colors and number, but Pontiac as the sponsor. I started building this twenty odd years ago as the Petty 43 last year car. Then my dad gave me a Franklin Mint version so I never finished it. Along the way, parts were robbed for other projects. Anyway, it's now finished with proper MGD decals from PowerSlide and Tamiya paint. Not historically accurate for 1993, but close. I mean the chassis is completely inaccurate, and those are five hole wheels. Looks OK on my shelf. The last picture was a quick mockup with parts I cobbled together.

Looks great!!! I am always searching out those 5 holes for other builds....

Jim Rodgers (the JR in SalvinoJR) 3D prints them with the slots open and hubs corrected, $5 a set. He does parts in between projects at the model company.

To me, accuracy is irrelevant. Did you enjoy building it? Does it look cool? Are you proud of the work you did? That’s all that matters.

Ya, it does look cool 😎 

I Agree! Thanks!

A very nice build, takes guts to pull of a decent gloss black paint job.

Thank you! I've found Tamiya gloss black to be the best out of the can over any other method besides airbrush.

It looks great, I didn't even notice the 5 hole wheels until I went back and read your description.  I agree with Bob, that black paint job is beautiful!

It looks great. Super details and paint finish. And it seems like you enjoyed the heck out of building it. Win. Win.

Thanks! It was a good build

Great job! I have always been a Rusty/MGD fan and I do not like beer.

Thank you!
