1969 Ford Torino Talladega 1/25 Polar Lights

This car was driven by Richard Petty, the most successful NASCAR driver of all time. He died a few years ago. Here in the southern USA he is worshiped by more people than Elvis. He drove Chrysler/Dodge cars his whole career except for 1969 when he drove this Ford. This is a reissue of an old kit, typical American car kit with mediocre mold quality and fairly low parts count. The decal sheet is new and beautiful and the body is nicely shaped. Unfortunately the body is also warped and will require surgery.

Despite the chaos in the USA last week, got this kit to the point where body-work can begin. Thank god for scale modeling to keep us calm when all hell breaks loose.

That said, this has got to be one of the worst kits I've ever worked on. OK, the molds are old, but the instructions have so many errors in part numbers, directions, assembly etc. that I think a Chinese worker wrote them. The instructions were really just there for decoration. I did so much chopping, cutting and grinding to make this thing fit, it really isn't straight from the box anymore.
