Here's one I haven't posted before.
This is a replica of the old Vineland (NJ) Speedway sign.



Vineland is the next town over, but I wasn't around when the track was running.



Dimensions were scaled against a 1/25th "Henry J" model kit and an old newspaper photo.



The signs are hand-painted.



Neither the sign nor the speedway exist today.

Very nice, Ken. But what else could it be?

Ken,
while you are digging thru the archives, you might as well post your DPM kitbash project. I think that project is one of the coolest things I have seen in 1/87. Your detail work on that one is truly "fine scale", so it would be right at home here! It was a major inspiration for me to get back into model building.

The speedway sign is a classic Ken. I remember witnessing this build way back on the SA forum (before we all abandoned ship there). A perfect replication of the original sign photo.

And I'll second the motion to see the DPM transformation here, it truly is an amazing piece of 1/87 scale modeling.

Too cool! Impressive work on those hand-painted signs, too.

Neat diorama.  I always got a kick seeing those car on a stand or pole displays, at race tracks or junk yards, etc.  Gary

Pretty cool piece. That you hand-painted the signs is awesome! Do you have any close-ups of the details?
