Sprint Car "Finished"

Well, here it is, the finished Sprint Car.

The base and model were finished a couple of weeks ago, but I have only just got around to taking a few photos of it just now. I am pleased with the end result on this project as I was not sure how it was going to end up. Now I've just got to wait for the other two models to be finished by Richard and Phil then for the larger base to be built.

I took the model to the Letchworth Show last weekend and entered it into the competition. Got Bronze in the civilian vehicles class. It's the Nationals next weekend so I'll have to wait and see what happens there. So here is a few photos.


  1. Excellent job on the sprint car. The weathering is well done.

  2. Thanks Bunker Boys.

    It was fun to build, even though there was a few moments that caused me to utter a few nasty words to the model.

  3. I have lots of those words anytime I build something that isn't armor. Anything I have to paint the interior for before I can glue it together gets put on my "I'll do it when I retire" shelf.

  4. What! You've got a "I'll do it when I retire" shelf? That's my excuse for all of the kits I buy. I tell the wife "They're for when I retire and save me money then!".
