1982 #11 Darrell Waltrip Mountain Dew Buick

COMPLETE!
In 1982, Darrell Waltrip continued his successful partnership with Junior Johnson and Mountain Dew. And successful it was, as DW won more then once on his was to his second consecutive Championship (which was followed up with a third in 1985).
When I got the kit I knew right away that I would build it as the Mountain dew car. Simple one-color painting and my favorite (and besides an occasional root beer) and only carbonated drink I drink.
If I had known how bad the kit decals were, that decision may not have been so easy. The 2003 reissue has horrible decals (didn't stop me from buying 4 more sets though) and I wish I had waited, as I purchased an original (1994) issue from Ken Uhler and the decals are clearly much better. Live and learn.

Built from the Monogram 2003 issue. Kit decals.
