OK, I'll take the bait. Body is a resin Mini Cooper by Big Bob's Kustom Body Shop. Class is T-Jet Fray Mini Cooper run at Pocket Rocket Raceway. Traditional FSR colors and stripes, with a little, (mini? ) attitude. I'm not that good at painting, but when I do paint I like to have a little fun...

Okay, for the fun of it I'll enter the first lexan car I painted. It's a Thunderbolt Bodies "Tyco Super Modified", running on a Tyco grey chassis with stock electricals & magnets, Wizzard SS armature and Tyco HPX silicone rears.

Re: Best looking race car contest! - 04/03/01 11:45 PM

hope i post these ok..not good with the html stuff...here's my attempt at a custom nascar winston cup car...all handpainted with no decals.
[img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1627815&a=12440545&p=45678515[/img]

here's a closer look at the chassis. i know its not being judged but i thought it deserved a look anyway. this chassis started out as a lifelike. everything was hand fabricated out of toothpicks and lexan except for driver, engine, and steering wheel

This is a lowered JL Viper. I removed the solid painted rear window with a motor tool and vacuum formed a custom clear rear window.

Joe,
How about a compression some of these photos. It took me 20 minutes just to post mine, due to my browser had to wait for the other pics to download. Mine are around 30K.

Here is my second submittal of two photos, on an apparent theme --I know.

[img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=292531&a=2174136&p=46802754&Sequence=0&res=high[/img] [img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=292531&a=2174136&p=46802756&Sequence=0&res=high[/img]

It's a Tom Heister styrene "LifeLike Sprinter" body. The paint is Model Master Boyd's orange and yellow pearlescent,and "brass" metallic for the thin stripe. The wings are covered with Bare Metal Foil raw aluminum and the Earl's sponsor logos come from a 1/10 scale fender set.
