Quick Build: Dale Earnhardt NASCAR by Revell
Scott McLaughlin punting around the Gold Coast track giving a demo of Joey Logano’s NASCAR this weekend reminded me I have a handful of NASCAR kits in the stash, including this “Pro Finish” SnapTite example of Dale Earnhardt’s Goodwrench #3 Chevy Monte Carlo from 2000.
Revell rate the kit as ‘Skill Level 1’. It says on the box “Easy Assembly, NO painting, NO Gluing, Peel ‘N Stick Decals” – so that’s exactly how I built it; no modifications, no detail painting or enhancements.
In reality, this is more a kit for kids who might not have access to paints and glue, and it’s a very simple build. For that reason, total build time was under 30 minutes!
- I have two more of these kits for sale, one identical to this, the other Dale’s Monte Carlo from 1998 when he won the Daytona 500. See the Models For Sale page.
My ‘Lost’ Models: The 1990s
Here’s the third and final installment of my ‘lost’ models. It startles me that the most recent build on this page (the McLaren at the bottom), was over 20 years ago.

Here’s the second installment of the 20 ‘lost’ models mentioned a couple of months back – Tamiya F1s from the 1980s.
