Here's my first attempt on a Parma 'cuda with liquid mask and rattle cans. I tried to get fancy and do this satin effect by thinning the white but it just looks bad. Almost marble-like. Anyway. It's good enough to run with my driving. It'll be toast in a few weeks

It is a replica of a very famous race car that raced in 72.
Holden Torana XU1 is the car.
Great Vigor are the manufacturers.
I got a painted one which only needed the decals fitted and also have a clear one yet to do up

Its only that low for pics, and havent fitted the body rests to the posts yet so nothing there to hold it up
Would be hard to turn the wheels if the body covered them so much

We haven't had anyone show up with a Red/White/Blue paint job on their Javelin yet. The only ones I've seen are in pictures.

Reminds me of Stroker Ace driving in the chicken suit! If you haven't seen it, it's classic Burt Reynolds.
