Chris,

Your stuff just keeps getting better and better. Thanks for sharing it with us here at Slotblog. Much appreciated!

The goggles are fantastic!!

The driver has a facial expression that is priceless.

thanks guys!

Okay, almost done with the interior. I need to finish off the dashboard which will go on later. I'll show photos of the complete interior later. It's not all glued down right now and there will be some minor touch ups. I did paint the car last night and I will show some photos of that real soon.

Onwards....

Ya know...

I have one (JUST one) of those 1/18 scale realistic display models, an Exoto Chaparral 2C. Love it. I can see now that I'm going to have to have a slot car built by Chris. I retire in about five years; maybe then. :)

Looks SO good, Chris!

I thought I would show this shot before I finished off all the details and give her a good wax job. I should be finished real soon and I've a lot more photos to show. The stance came out real well.

Anyway, onward to the finish!

Is there a reason the photos are so small? Or is it on my end? What I CAN see looks sharp!

Right click and open in another window, Mike. It's just something weird that Chris does.
