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

Looks awesome. Really like how the 2 paints blend together.

Not sure Monogram got the rear ride height correct when developing this kit.

Cheers Michael

Good stuff Corran. Barely more than a month into the group build and one is finished already. I'd be surprised if anyone can top this build for
brightness! B)

Thanks guys...I enjoyed it!
The ride height is partly my fault Michael as the body doesn't sit well on the frame..probably something I did during construction...like I said I learnt a lot building this!
Like Terry says..it is bright! Wont lose it in the dark!

Nah, based on my experience with American car kits, it's more likely to be the fault of the kit :dry:
Great result though. Looks fantastic :) :)

Looking good man! You got Pole position with the first over the line!!

Decals look like they went on really well! Did you watch the movie at all while building? :P
