I don't think I have ever shown this build. It has been in the back of the display case for some time. It is built from the AMT 57 Ford kit which I got from another modeler missing parts. It is built sorta curb-side as it does not have any engine detail. I didn't spend a lot of time on this one and built it in about a week. I got the idea from a photo I found in Stock Car Mag.


Ordinarily I am insane, but I do have lucid moments where I am merely stupid.
I never TRY to hit another car. But when I do I make sure its a Prius.

I think, if my memory is correct, the driver was from the Tamiya Campus Friends set, The trophy girl was from a trophy girl and driver set that I have not seen since I found it. I don't remember the brand and only about 2 of the five figures were good enough to use. It was an import and the quality was rather bad.

Two things.....
Might wanna check that coolant level and don't park under that same tree.
Looks like a bird wants to purchase it since there's a deposit down on it..... r:r
