Not 100 percent accurate, I got as close as I could using the Monogram Kurtis Kraft kits. Tire and car decals by Indycals ( I want to convey that there no problems with the decals at all, any wrinkles or cracks you see are my doing, as I use spray paint and my decal setting stuff has been on the shelf a long time).
Paint was Valspar 85041 Gloss Cobalt Cannon for the 52/53 cars, and Valspar 85091 Satin Hunters White for the 1954 car. Cleared by Future floor wax.

Fantastic looking cars ! Vuky has always been one of my favorites. He was leading in 52 with just a handful of laps to go and broke a wheel. Won it of course in 53 and 54 and died while leading in 55. Could have won four in a row. The Mad Russian was one tough hombre.

I grew up in Fresno where the name Vuckovich was a house hold word at our house. I am building a replica of Billy the 3rds supermodified and it is going to Bill Sr. daughter. I have also seen the real 14 car at the Indy museum. Very nice job on those cars.
