OK, I have to ask because I had not seen it before, but where did you get the Camry nose?

kept looking at it head on...in different light...looking at it from the top...

then i got it...the driver side fender was not as wide as the passenger side...

so...after a b**t ton of squadron gray...some perfect plastic white (which is a finer putty)...more sanding and grinding and cussing...

it looks better...(?)

(edit: still banging away on the Camry nose job...i have started working on a set of decals to print up for it...a maybe/future JGR car...)

stance roughed in...

to get it really low will probably require some surgery on the front end...

on the hoof...

still have to pull the body down on the chassis to get the stance set...

i did not use the kit rolling stock...i am using stuff from an older Revell kit so i could adjust the wheels/tires into the body.

also:



yeah...not even close.

one last shot before i wrap it up and drive it into the showroom...

the particulars:

Revell glue kit...Ace's kicka** decal sheet...Powerslide detail decals (the roof/cowl flap decals are just about as entertaining to apply as wheel pinstripe decals...but the result is worth it)...TS-23 spray bomb for the body color...

extra stuff:

if you use this decal sheet...apply all the "scheme" decals first...then the contingencies and sponsors...fortunately i had spare headlight/grill/ect decals to fix my getting ahead of my self.

that is a chopped up roof flap from Mike's SS RF/HC sheet.

while i don't think many (if any) cars had roof hatches...i'm going to fill the outline of the hatch in...just for consistency.

I believe the hatch is only present on the plate track cars.

Build looks great!

yeah...i was being google lazy...2016 the hatch was optional for plate tracks...2017 mandatory for plate tracks...optional at all other venues.

i think i'm good...it looks like the 43 had the hatch at the Daytona 500 in 2016...so...i guess this just became the Daytona 500 car. (shrugs)

put the TBird on the back burner for now...(actually got a good deal on a squarebird that will also be a Dale Sr. Wrangler car)

so the next project in the Skunkworks race shop is gonna be the #18 NAVY Lumina from the '91 Daytona 500...dirt cheap diecast...Mike's awesome decal sheet...

doing this for my oldest ungrateful offspring as a parting gift for successful completion of his 6 year swim thru the Navy...

Rusto Navy Blue...rolling stock from new Revell glue kit (it had to have some beefy-er items)...SEM for the chassis...
