This is the Revell 1/24th Davey Allison diecast from 1992. It is packaged with contingency decals to make a '91,'92, or '93 version. For the most part, it appears to be intended as a childs toy. The body contours are off a bit and it lacks significant detail, compared to the adult collectible level cars. My wife brought it home to me from a yard sale and clearly, it had been thoroughly played with by some youngster and it showed it. The first two pics are the before shots. I stripped it down and repainted with dupont black. I added powerslide decals, as well as detail decals. All covered in Dupont clear and polished to a high shine. I added nine bars to the roll cage and added some color and detail to the interior and engine. Thanks for looking.

Looks great - nice to see a lot of Davey decals coming out from Powerslide, these really pop and complete the build. I can't believe that paint - super smooth!!

That looks awesome!! I have a Jeff Gordon Revell diecast from '94-'95 and even though they do lack detail, they are cool because of the working steering and opening hood. I never realized until now that this car and Rusty's MGD car have same base scheme.

Just like in the movies....when they take the ugly, nerdy girl and they make her over into a beautiful princess. Awesome job...

You did a nice job on cleaning up those windows, they look brand new.

Well as the saying goes-"You can't polish a turd!"
But you sir, pulled it off thumbsup Those Revell's were pretty rough. Looks like a real diecast now!
