Submission 6 Steve Knox (1972 WinnebaGO Brave)
This is a scratch-built 1972 WinnebaGO Brave. It has the chassis rails from a Ford pickup. The engine is a twin turbo Chevrolet LS. It was constructed from evergreen sheet styrene and 3D printed resin parts. The engine, wheels, seats, bunk beds, sink, couch and various other details were printed. One of the most fun builds I've done.
The time was late 90’s. During his first race, up and coming driver Orville H. Onyx (O-HO for short) spun so much that the TV announcers didn't know if he was coming or going. To save face, for his second race the team prepared a special car for him that they affectionately named “THE SPIN CYCLE”. Model is made up of two 1/24 Monogram Pontiac Grand Prix with homemade Tide decals and all other decals taken from the stash.
Submission 8 Darren Anderson (Tamiya 1966 Model Volkswagen 1300 Beetle)
This kit was painted with Tamiya TS-10 French Blue and TS-7 Racing White. It was cleared with Tamiya TS-13. All paint was applied straight from the rattle cans. Once cured, the clear coat was wet-sanded and then polished. Due to an unfortunate accident, the kit windshield was damaged. A donor windshield did not fit entirely properly, so a Safari Windshield option was used. Finally, the suspension was drastically lower, in classic VW squat style.
