Buddy Baker 'Gray Ghost' build video

Post by wixy500 »

Hi everyone. I finished this non-F1 model on New Year's Eve. It's the late Buddy Baker’s 1980 Daytona 500 winning Oldsmobile 442 "Gray Ghost", built from a Salvinos JR Models 1/25 scale kit.

I used a combination of Zero, SMS and Tamiya lacquer paints and there’s a number of alterations and scratch-built items to enhance the level of detail.

A video of the full build is now up on my YouTube channel:

Now, back to the open-wheelers!

Cheers
