my 'migo Hurricane Dave has been working with this model for a while. modified snapper with random enamel paint and MPR decals. posting because he is kinda technologically slow... Laughing

beautiful car. his paint work is normally amazing, and this is no exception.























I may let him know to chime in about all the awesome mods he did.

Thank you buddy for posting these for me. This is a Jr snap kit, Krylon paint, MPR decals(which are always awesome to work with), board member Scooter made this shark fin for me(thank you my friend) and yea, these kits suck lol. A lot of cutting and modding to lower it, this is the best I could do, homemade front splitter from a Chinese take out lid lol. I did miss the white underlay for the 2 NASCAR racecar decals on the A pillar and the ethanol, hindsight is always 20/20, and the forward 5 that goes on the headlight totally bent over on me and I couldn't recover it. This kit had a split exhaust and my buddy 18 texted me and said" you know the exhaust only goes out of the passenger side, right?" Uh no! So I completely tore the kit exhaust apart and super glued and filled, and sanded, and filled some more until I got it somewhat respectable. The dorsal fin on the C pillar where the blue and black meet was drawn on paper many many times until I finally liked the geometry of it and traced to the car and taped over and cut out with an exacto knife. I did a little bit of tire detail and tried my hand at some wiring detail. This is my first SS car I've ever built so take it easy on me guys Very Happy. Any comments or tips are always welcomed. Sorry about the crappy pics guys, my IPhone 4 is way behind the times Laughing
