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

Got the basic chassis and cage together ready for painting



And decided which version to build, in 1996 Petty Enterprises ran 5 special paint schemes for the 25th Anniversary and this model will be the all blue car that ran at Sears Point



Reference pictures were hard to come by but after a couple of hours last night I have sussed out all the decals etc so now it's on with the build!

Nice work Rick. Is there a way to knock back the carrier film on the tyre decals?

On the older kits when they first started doing the tyre decals they apply fine, the later issue kits the decals are useless. These are aftermarket slixx decals and they are a bit hit and miss, I found trimming the carrier made the decals curl up so that didn't work. Basically is just an issue of trying to get them to stick to the vinyl tyre, sometimes its easy and sometimes not but you just don't know until they dry! Hopefully the micro set will settle them down, pics were taken when still wet

A couple of progress pics, got the chassis finished and painted the body, just have to wait for the clear coat to harden before giving it a polish then the decals.

Looking really good. Do you wet sand and layer the paint, or just one/two coats?

Hi all, sorry for my lack of response, not been on the forum much lately as been very busy recently.

The paint on this body was just from a rattle can, white primer and used some Aus Export paint from super cheap auto. Bit of wet sanding after primer then light coats on the top coat and finally a clear coat. Nothing special!
