    Everyone has had this kit I am sure or at least I hope.

    This is one of my favorites as a kid.

    I built it 98% box stock just for nostalgia purpouses.

    All I am doing is wiring th engine, running some linkage to the hat, blackout the wheel backs, cut the side windows out and I already painted it Testors Chrome Yellow with Testors pearl clear over that.

    Al right, Now youve got to do a diorama of the pits at one of the top tracks. Maybe Lyons or something.
    Now you went and made me dig into my box of pictures.

    how bout an old time team theme like this?
    If it wasn't for the tailgate on the pickup on the other side of the hauler, you might think this was from the late 60s early 70s.

    Very cool. Good to see there's someone else on the site interested in plastic. Do you happen to have a link to any pictures of your builds? Looks like you've done some nice stuff.

    Thank you Sir. On my Model Kit board I have plenty. Checkout the in progress/completed section, same board name as here.

    Enjoy...

    Nice job! I'm just now getting back to some modeling after 30 years. I was wondering how you tinted the windows and are the seatbelts a photocopy by chance? I want to tint some windows purple for a gasser but can't find a purple candy. Any suggestions? BTW, Hobby Lobby has the Badman model. I want to Two Lane Blacktop one. Maybe later.

    Nice work but I can honestly say I never built a chevy model...ever. Built a ton of Mopars, planes and tanks...no Fords either.

    Nice build,and the other builds look good as well. Hey! We could use a good model build thread-is this it?

    If you don't mind;I'd like to add to this:

    100_3940.jpg
    100_3942.jpg
    100_3943.jpg
    100_3946.jpg

    It's the Lindbergh '64 Dodge 330. Good kit(glad it was done),but has some serious issues as far as "Mopar correctness" goes. This was a bit of a quick build to see if I still had some skill after a 20 year hiatus. The next Mopar build(a '64 Plymouth Belvedere HT) will have the corrections made.
