NASCAR Group Build
Start Date: 23/11/2015
End Date: 21/11/2016

Boogity, Boogity, Boogity! Let's Go Racing Boys!! A famous cry as millions of viewers across America, and the rest of world tune in to watch the high adrenaline sport of NASCAR racing

We will be commencing a Kiwimodeller NASCAR Group Build, beginning 00:00 Monday 23rd November and running through to 23:59 21st November 2016

The build is open to any scale, but is limited to vehicles from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series. Historical NASCAR vehicles are also eligible

The model must be built in its entirety within the specified build dates and the build should be accompanied by a thread in the group build forum documenting regular progress. Post shots of your sprues at the beginning of your thread. By the end of the GB (and no later than 24 hours after the completion date) participants should post five pictures of the completed build in the GB completed builds thread.

There is no entry fee for the GB, but a donation for the upkeep of Kiwimodeller is welcome

The winner of the group build will be decided by popular vote. Voting will run for the week following the 18th of September 2016, ending Midday the 25th of October 2016. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.

Moderators for the GB will be Andrew and Ian

Looking very tidy. Can't beat a NASCAR kit for a bit of colour to brighten up the model display shelf.

Since it's the never-ending GB I'm tempted to start another build myself. :)

Geeze that must be annoying. Nascar = lots of decals = lots of work down the drain. :(

I've had something similar happen once many years ago. Tamiya X-22 clear sprayed over Tamiya decals applied over Tamiya paint on a Tamiya kit. I've never had it happen again and I still don't know what went wrong. :huh:

Very nice work, the paint work is super tidy

Body color on the bonnet pins is the only thing I would change.. but I know they are a mission to paint with out touching the bonnet.
