Just a few concours winners that I have done in the last year ....... the F1 is an Oleg Brabham modeled after Benetton racing .... the Nascar is a Ralph Thorne body modeled after Davey Allison's  Havoline Car.    I will post a few more later, Just to show off a bit.

WildMan, your paint jobs look  wild! The Davey Allison stock car looks great. Is the a RTR body that could be labeled any model of car you chose to put on it? I like your Benetton colors on the F1 too. There is enough contrast of colors there, that even an old guy like me wouldn't  loose the car out on a race track. I'll await to see some more of your great paint work.

That TI-22 is a sharp body. Did you have custom masks for that paint job? WildMan, do you know Ken Stevens who races retro cars out of Houston? Back in the 70s, he & I were racing friends when we lived in the Boston suburbs. I raced with his dad Al too.

I'll jump in. "Wildman" Patrick and I both know Ken Stevens well and have raced with him for years in the South Texas Scale Series. Great guy and racer, and fun to be around. Our 2021 series will, I hope, start in April.

 

BTW, Patrick...nice job on all the above as usual!

I do Know Kenny and he & I drive to Dallas at the end of every month to race Retros and sometimes flexi's  ...... he is a good racing buddy !!!!!   I di make those masks and I can tell you that was the hardest mask to get applied....I had to do it wet to get it to go into those side fines....took a while.

Patrick, I somehow missed your April posts. You have a great bunch of  nicely painted bodies. My favorite is your dirt mod. Is the Duracell paint a copy of a real car paint/vinyl job, or something that just came from your mind? It looks like something I might have done in the day. :)

Bill, that was done in 2003 I believe and I do a lot of what I call "Theme" Cars..... just pick a logo and build a car with that.
