1988 Daytona 500 Winner #12 Miller Buick Bobby Allison 1:24

Hi

Starting with a damaged 1988 Buick Regal body and a incomplete Nascar chassis in 1:24.







The target was the 1988 Daytona 500 Winner.



4 weeks later with new Powerslide decals, scaleproduction photo etched parts and tamiya paint the result looks great...enjoy it.

Great recovery! Would love to see how you were able to fix the A arm for example.

Wow, nice save! Build looks great! Wish NASCAR would go back to having cars that actually look like the car they represent instead of the "one size fits all" templates they use now.

great job, I really like the gold /white Miller scheme.
I have a Porsche 962 that need one of those paint jobs.
