Graphical overhaul of the lesser-known nr2003 mod..

 

One of the lesser-known dirt-oriented mods dug out of some buried folder stash. This is a mod I already had a pretty good jumpstart on from a while back as far as the usual graphic sprucing goes. Over the past weeks I’ve just slowly gone back over all aspects of it (templates, visuals, presentation, etc.)…

It’s pretty well a complete package at this point lacking only in the amount of paints I’ve been able to compile onto the updated templates. I’ve found this mod to be maybe the most challenging of nr2003 mods to paint for because it’s such a blank slate to start from and really draws on creativity. Model-wise you have two tri-five chevys (the ’55 & ’57), ‘56 crown vic, and a ’56 Chrysler variant…

The models themselves are not stunning by today’s standards, but I would place them upper rung by nr2003 standards, especially for what’s out there for nostalgic bodies. I can see where the mod itself was intended as a sort of period racer of the 60’s era. Personally, I think it’s better suited towards representing a more modern day nostalgic series using spec-type, aluminum kit bodies which is the approach I took with the templates & overall theme. 

This is something I will dump out there perhaps sooner rather than later (I’m not really sure), my main focus nr2003-wise is on the asa project still as priority. This is more of a side project, although still a fun little mod to pound the dirt in when you’re looking for something a little different.
