Hello fellow model builders, I posted a similar request a while back, but as I have a color page open in the upcoming issue of Inside Track, I would like to fill it with a few pics of models.

Models should relate directly to motorsports in the Northwest (specifically Washington, Oregon and Idaho.) If you have a build that you would like to share with our Northwest race fans e-mail me at and I'll get you the details.

Some examples might include
Chad Little (Phillip's 66, John Deere), Derrike Cope (Purolator, others), Tobey Butler (Ortho truck and also drove Ken Schrader's truck), Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle, Mike Bliss. Pat Austin (Red Wing dragster.) How about Davey Hamilton? Or if you like boats Dave Villwock is local as are several of the teams. Any Ron Jones hull would qualify as having a strong Northwest connection. There's so many more. In fact, I print a whole magazine's worth of possible Northwest model subjects each month during the racing season.

I have some examples of past kits posted at but what I am looking for is shots and information to use in the print version of the magazine.
The next issue will be going to the printers early next week, so the sooner the better, but I would like to see several that I can include in future issues.

Sorry for the late notice, but I hope there are a few good examples out there I could work with.
