Revell '70 Road Runner By My 11yr Old Daughter
Posted by crzyhorse on Thursday, March 18, 2004 2:53 PM
On this page you'll see pics of my daughter, Tasha's '70 Road Runner. She painted & polished it (if you can't tell it's light pink) She'd really love to see what y'all have to say about it. Thanks for your input. http://www.xpphotoalbum.com/showgallery.php?cat=8019&ppuser=3876

Nice work , great for an 11 year old. Tell her to keep bilding. ANd that snap fast is great for a 3 yr old

Tasha, you're off to a great start!
That's how old I was when I became interested in building models.
Happy modeling!

Tasha & Craig, Fantastic work Big Smile !! It is great to see young kids like yourself learn how to make models, remember patience and a steady hand will always make a model come out great and you can be proud because you did with your own talent (and maybe a little help from Mom & Dad Big Smile)

crzyhorse,

Please congratulate your daughter on a great job. if she keeps building like that & she could be the next moparlady. I have a daughter 10 years old myself who also builds model cars. She started when she was nine & has built 10 i think. I help her build some of the harder stuff, but i let her paint it any way she wants. That way she can make it her own.

If I built that good at 11, I'd have never worked on the real things for a living. She is good and like they said, you had better watch your back! One day Ol' Dad is gonna say, "That's my girl!" Great job Tasha and you to Craig, keep on modeling!!!!

Nice going Tasha! Big Smile Craig encourage her to keep building, hope the input from the group helps too.

very interesting color light and nice....differnt tooWink Mopar did have a very rare now pink not the moulin rouge lighter more like the one you chose but yours is better..Big Smile

I had a friend in high school with a very rare 70 Ford XLT Sport Short box Factory color was like that pastel and very differentWink it seemed 2 different colors depending on the light outside on bright days it would seem almost white when over cast or against a back drop of fresh white snow it was blue....

In 20 years I have only seen three vehicles with this exact factory color, Mike's truck, a 70 Mach 1 & a 70 Torino notchback... long ago concluded on own must be 70 only color.

Never knew what the color was until today... went to this site... www.autolibrary.com where paint chips told me its #11683 and goes by the names of "Diamond Blue" or "Baby Blue Ice" also verified it was a 1970 only color...

Have fun & build more, I'd enjoy seeing them too.

That's a great looking car Tasha! Keep on building - you're obviously very talented and each project will only get more fun as you go along.
Congrats on your win - there's certainly more to come.
BEEP BEEP! Road Runner!

Looks like you guys have a full house of very good modelers. Keep up the nice work kids and, dad you better watchout or the lil one may beat you at your own game.
Tasha, my 10 year old son plays ice hockey. In that sport, much like model contests most players are boys. Here is a cool quote from a father of a girl player ( you can beat'em, they are only boys).

Hockey players wear numbers because, they cannot always be identified by dental records. Lets go Red Wings!!

Great work Tasha, I wish my roadrunner looked that cool. Dad, you're on the right track, play with your children and do with your children. Kudos to you also. My son models also, and I like to think it was my influence, and now his kids are beginning to dabble a bit in the modelling.
Keep those models and pics coming Tasha, and thanks., and Craig, keep plugg'in along, you have 2 good teachers.Thumbs UpThumbs Up
