I used one of the new Revell Snap Tite ford fusion kits. I fixed the exhaust and the stance and put the tires up under the fenders like the real cars have it. Had to make my own decals. It was fun to build but on the next one I will cut the glass apart and glue them in individually. Tamiya paint.

You print the white ones on white decal paper and cut them out as close as you can. below are the sheets

You're a wiz with the scissors and the color matches. The cuts look flawless.

Mark once again your work is super nice. Clean, crisp and your decal work is on the money. Even though I don't care for these cars and even less for Bad Brad Krashoutski, I love seeing your work. Regardless of the little weasel driving the subjects, keep it up. You do fine work and I enjoy it. Thanks for showing it to us.
Ordinarily I am insane, but I do have lucid moments where I am merely stupid.
ANY problem race car can be cured with a pound of C 4, Detonator and a 12 volt battery.
Your drivers attitude will improve if you have the correct load in your Mossberg.

Beautiful work and I am floored by your decal work. Bad Brad is one of my favorite drivers, he has matured quite a bit over the past couple of seasons. maddr
I build models because GOD allows me to and because I can't afford the real thing!!

Beautiful build Mark. I've tried that decal technique, but the color matches were not as good. You've got skills. fbr

Has a checkered past.

If the color matches are way off you can scribe around the decal with a #11 xacto blade and remove the excess with a tooth pick. just get it started enough to get a tweezers on it and pull it right off. It leaves the decal with no background. Then just clean where the excess decal was carefully with distilled water and when you future it the decal settles right down and is sealed by the future.
