The NASCAR Race truck build

May 25, 2023 · in Automotive · · 11 · 513

Good lord makes horrible kits. I would never touch one of these kits if I wasn't paid to do so. I think drug use is rampant at the AMT factory. Anyhoo here is a 1/25th scale AMT Raybestos race . everything on this kit, reshaping parts, recreating parts, replacement decals, custom wiring, custom air intakes, custom front end and on and on...Finished model looks good and the customer is happy!

  1. @rickschad - Nice work Rick. Sounds like there isn't much of the original kit left with all of your custom work. The paint and weathering look great!

  2. Neat work, Rick.

  3. Despite the challenges, you created a superb Nascar truck, Rick @rickschad
    Well done.

  4. Fantastic job, Rick! What a departure from the original kit!
    Looks superb!

  5. I sure that was a very difficult paint scheme to accomplish. Final result looks fabulous.
