hello all, some pics of Bud King
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 9, 2004 2:53 AM
just found this place...great to find this forum, i've followed scale auto for years now, as you can tell by the name i love my nitro, got a couple pics that i just started to add to my album, will get more added along the way.
i built this a few years back, before the new kits came out going back to the front bicycle wheels so i add to scratch build the front suspension (will get pics) and also scratch built the inline fuel pumps, the old kits had the side by side fuel pumps.
anyways, hope y'all like :)

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

I wonder if anybody will make new decals for Brendan?

Fantastic! That is some of the cleanest and best engine work I have ever seen!
I love drag racing subjects and build mostly nostalgia stuff so I will probably start building my Bernstein car in about 20 years!

Very very nice. Beautiful detail work. Bernstein has always been a favorite of mine and your model does his ride justice!!

thanx a lot guys, glad you enjoyed the pics, i poured my heart into my Bernstein model, of course it was easy to do with such a love for drag racing, i did a lot of scratch building on that model also, added such things as the fuel shut off lines from the hand lever to each fuel pump.
i've added more pics, also added pics of the Cory Mac ride from 1992 and also pics of my next project in the works, a funny car, still sitting in the jib i use to make handling easy without worries of rubbing off the paint as i go along.
hope you enjoy :)

That's a museum piece.!!! Very well done. I love the engine work.
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

Excellent work. The detail work is very good. I do the same thing to my dragsters and I can appreciate the time and effort it takes to put out that kind of work. It's nice to see other people push the envelope on engine detailing like that. I like the in-progress funny car chassis as well. What car is it going to be?

thanx guys
1320wayne...the funny car is going to be Chuck Etchells when i get this finished
Enzo_man....my reference material is mostly my own pics, i have been attending a drag race for the last 12 years, been to memphis, pennsylvania, pomona a couple times, the inaugural race at vegas and in my backyard is brainerd...i get all the pics i can when doing a subject and the nice thing bout drag racing is you can get right up to the card, mind you i have gotten some looks from crew members when i inspect the car a lil too closely...i also used the "Pit Pass" pics from scale auto also in my references.
mostly i used the pics so that i knew where each line is running to, as you can see from the pics the model is really not true to form, (spark plugs wire being yellow, seat belts blue, etc...), i was more into plumbing and wiring it up just like the real thing
i was at the following race in pennsylvania after Blaine Johnson's tragic accident at Indy in 96 so my Bud King was modelled after that, all the crews had the "black slash" through the numbers from their finishing order from the year before so i did the same on my model
the personal pics i have i would share em but they are just 35mm prints, hard to share them not like the digital age, they would of been much easier to upload and share
