Nascars strickly stock division was the forerunner of todays Monster Energy Cup series. So this was the first champion of the top division of Nascar. Revell kit, Model Masters Acryl paint and my own decals. It took 105 hours to complete.

Beautiful model. Impeccably done. Perhaps strange to point out in a racing car, but that interior is stunning. Glad you could get in there with the close up lens to show it.

I assume you have a printer that does white. Those are super nice decals. I'm envious... EDIT: Saw your post on SA showing your decals. Now I remember your Pontiac stocker and your technique for printing black backgrounds on white stock. It came out perfect on this one!

BTW it's probably worth noting what a critical figure Red Byron was to stock car racing. Perhaps as important as Bill France himself.
Keep on buildin'

Bernard, If you cut the decals close but not super close from the sheet and then apply them to the car and then use a brand new number 11 blade to etch around the decal this time as close as you can get and then remove the excess decal material with a toothpick and tweezers you can get the white paper decals to look pretty good. Not as good as clear sheet decals but not too bad actually.
