Thanks, that one was mine!

My first time competing at the TCS Nats, what a thrill just to go up against some real talent such as BP Shadow, Vyger, and more that I don't know thier names. I can't wait for next year to do it all over again.

BP, that Ferrari was stunning.

Your welcome.
I too noticed BP's dark red Ferrari as well as Vgers yellow Benson Hedges car.

I did notice the picture of one with detailed brakes, stickers on the tires etc. Whos was that?

How did the F104s fair generally? I dont see a breakdown of the competitors and thier chassis.....

Mr. Web, that is one AWESOME job you did with the ING car. Congrats for a very deserving best of show win. That car had everything going for it. Beautiful paint work, well thought out details, and very clean paint lines. I love the details you put on the body using the different textures of paint, seat belts, helmet, grooved tires with sidewall markings, front shock links, color matched wings, and zero body mount hardware showing. INCREDIBLE!

You need to post up some pics on here so everyone can take a look at that BEAUTIFUL car. Congrats again.

Hey Vyger. Thanks for the kind words man. Having seen some of your great work, it means a lot! Yeh I'm a huge fan of the 90s cars too. I have fond memories growing up and watching F1 from the mid-80s. It's amazing how nice the 90s paint schemes come up on the 08 bodies.

Thanks, means alot coming from someone with your talent. I'm just happy to see that someone else appreciates "the details" of a car as much as I do. I'll post some pics when I can get ahold of a decent camera... maybe this weekend. Thanks again!

I didn't know that was your Benson Hedges car. Great job on that one, it's a real eye catching scheme! Let's see some pics of that.

The Martini car was Marty Hageman (414MPH), I think he has like 5 National concourse wins in the history of the series not to mention numerous regional wins as well

By the way, I just picked up my shipment of 104 bodies from my LHS today, 3 came in and 1 is already spoken for, so I have 2 up for grabs and 1 Chevron that is not taken yet. If anyone is interested. I also have the Red Bull and Toro Rosso sheets on their way from Japan as well

You can count on it, and it wont be on someone elses car next time. I have already started the planning phase, that means I will still be working on it the night before the race
