Oh yes... The SC 427 side-oiler - 0-60-0 MPH ['Fastest Production Car in the World'], and held that title for a goodly number of years. Thanks for ever sharing this one, brings back some outrageous and scary memories, being thrown around in the inside of one of those Beast. Nicely done and executed, and thanks for sharing - I can almost smell the burnt rubber and hi-octane fumes... Thanks!

Put together a little vignette with a Hasegawa official and a Master box mechanic girl...

Cheers all
Stay safe

The old white glue and toilet paper trick
wrapped the painted car in saran wrap first

..put a couple stretched sprue in between for an anti roll off channel ..like the good blankets have... And then soaked the tp with diluted 50/50 white glue and water.
Let it dry overnight, primed with Duplicolor sealer/primer, heavily, then painted with red craft paint, and I found a decal in my spares drawer...
