Thought we would have a little fun with this theme.

I have opened it up for the whole of Kitmaker since finding out that racing has three key elements. 1.) Vivid colors. 2.) Striping (designs). 3.) A framed number.

So ANYTHING goes as long as those three criteria are met. Everything is left up to the builder to decide how to implement the criteria. The main thing is that they are highly visible.

The GB (Campaign) is found here.

Gentlepeople!! Start your, whatever you choose to call your engine!!

I now have my subject - in a box marked 'do not start 'till October 1st' !

Think Mini, stockcar/rallycross, a bit bashed, home-modified etc

I'm still undecided as to my subject... But you will most likely do three anyway!

Goodness. Would a Monster Truck fit this? I have the Dodge Raminator....but won't build it as such. I more so want to play some ideas on paint.

1.) Vivid colors. "Having intensely bright colors." Just used up the Yellow for my Ranchero. Dang. May look for a Green?

2.) Striping (designs). Fits with a play on colors I want to try. Several layers of strips in various Greens?

3.) A framed number. #147. My DSB number.

Reading the GB brief - anything goes so long as it has the right markings.

Wonder who'll be the first to submit a gaudily striped tiger tank with drag-racing stackpipes?
