waxy buildup

Wax figures of Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Jr. were unveiled at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Friday. I think that Madame Tussauds did an excellent job with Petty’s likeness. As you can see in the photo below it’s hard to tell which one is the real Richard Petty and which is his wax counterpart.

Unfortunately they didn’t get things quite as right for Dale Jr. I don’t think it really looks like him. I mean, his forehead isn’t nearly that large. What do you think?

    You’re right about the Jr. one. I don’t know if it’s the forehead, or the rather puffy cheeks/jowls they’ve got on him. His face doesn’t really look like that.
