1957 Junior Johnson Ford
Posted by texwardfan on Sunday, December 17, 2017 7:13 AM

Finally finished this one. Junior drove this car right after he got out of prison for moonshining. He drove it in 1958 and most of 1959. He won 6 races in 1958 and 5 races in 1959. I built it to look the way it did for the 1958 Southern 500 because those were the only good reference pictures I had of it. Revell kit, Model Master acryl paint, and my own ink jet decals. It took 76 hours to complete. 12.5 of those hours were to create and print the decals.

Time well spent on the decals! What a great era that was in NASCAR! I was hooked by 1959. Thanks for posting this beauty. Thumbs Up

One of my favorites yet, Tex. You nailed the look, and your decal work is fantastic. I really like this one.
