Built this in the mid to late 90's, Monogram's 70 Superbird, B-5 Blue, with home made decals.

Near flawless!  I like the superior vinyl roof, chrome trim, and total underhood detailing.  WOW!  The bit of black in the cowl louvers and hood insulation add remarkable realism.  Careful interior brushwork makes the often overlooked interior equally fine.  Only the lunacy of the original car design detracts from the finished model.  It was, after all, designed to win NASCAR races, not to be a practical "daily driver," especially in bad weather.

Excellent. Love the Tri-power 440. Most people don't know that it made more Horsepower and more torque than the Hemi. Super job on this one.

Thanks. A friend made them back in the late 90's or early 2000's, he had a printer that printed white back then, he just scanned some artwork and printed them.
