This was my first attempt at a dirt track style car, so I decided to start off with its earliest era of racing. Its also completely built out of the parts box.

This one will not have many wip pics, I seem to have lost a few.

The pile of parts...

Here is where I combined chassis parts to make one.

See what you can do with it, I expect the magic you bring to builds.

Well...not sure about the magic with this one. lol The nice thing about this venue of race cars is that they were supposed to be rough. :-)


Ok, here is the last of the wip pics. just a simple color scheme, single bucket seat, and basic roll cage. Add a steel bumper/grille guard combo. wire mesh came from an old window screen I replaced on the house. This is also my first attempt at weathering.
