Roth's Outlaw

Built by: Paul Burke in Cotati, California

The Outlaw was the first show car I ever built. I also remember it was the first time I ever tried Candy Apple Red spray paint. Boy, what a mess I made of that one.

This is the car that really got me back into modeling. The hobby shop around the corner from my house had a few of the Roth, SSP's kits left, and the Outlaw box art just brought back so many memories, I had to have it. Needless to say, it took me 3 tries to get it right.

I painted the body, pearl white lacquer and clear coated it, and polished it out. Then I applied the decals, WHICH WAS A LOAD OF FUN!!!! I used decal liquid to soften them up to go around those curves. Once dried, I applied enamel clear coat over that so as not let the lacquer eat up those beautiful decals.

I plumbed and wired the engine, once again using fishing line for the spark plug wire and fuel lines, painting the fuel line with transparent green, as on the real car.

The interior is a pearl white, with turquoise inner panel. I flocked the floor with a dark green flocking. Last but not least, I used JPS aluminum wire wheels in front, and resin tear drop knobs for the three bullets on the front grill. They just don't make kits like this anymore. Very detailed and a killer to build, but nice when finished
