Chris Buescher 2016 Nascar Ford Fusion first win car
Posted by texwardfan on Monday, March 13, 2017 4:07 PM

Revell snap kit, Tamiya paint, my own decals created on my computer and printed on testors white sheets, and alot of scratch work on the front end to try to duplicate the real car which is a 2016. the snap kit depicts the 2014/2015 Fusion.

Thanks Chucky and Mike. Mike the difference is the park lights on the 2016/2017 fusions are inside some scoop looking deals. Also the grille on the 2016 is cross hatch instead of bars and it is flush instead of concave like the 2014/2015 cars. That concave grille acted like a parachute on the early fusions.

Looks good, Tex! I thought recent NASCAR race cars had the issue with the splitter and supports that was hard to replicate. I haven't paid that much attention but maybe the Busch series cars don't have the same set-up. Your paint and decals certainly are top notch! Really nice build! Cool Thumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

I went on the net right after I looked at your build and looked at some pics of the previous years to see the difference between the two. You did a clean job on the changes to that nose

Nigel, It's called a shark fin. It helps with side to side stability and also helps direct more air over the rear spoiler. But don't quote me on that. I could be completely wrong.

Patrick, they are suppose to come out with a glue kit for these cars with a complete chassis and engine. so you might want to wait for those.
