Gorgeous, Mark. Always a pleasure to feast my eyes on your work. Are those aftermarket decals or have you achieved some sort of incredible breakthrough in cutting out white lettering?
Keep on buildin'

Thanks, Bernard. I had to match the color paint I used for the car to the background of the decals. The script was way too small to cut out each letter from a black back ground. If you go to the wip of the model at the link below you will see how I did it.

Bernard, here are the decal sheets I used on the model. the small 11's and juniors name are on a clear sheet because the roof is white and the others were printed on white sheets.

Well, upon closer examination I can just see the edge of the rectangle on the blue background. But it looks like you got the color match virtually dead on and only because of your decal sheet photo was I able to determine your are a mere mortal like the rest of us, LOL. Great job. Like I said, gorgeous model.
Keep on buildin'

Thanks Bernard. There is a sheet available for this car but the contengencies don't look right and the horsepower numbers and mechanics name aren't the right size either so I decided to make my own.

You just keep crankn' em out Supertex. You have not posted a single one that I didn't like, they all rock! I love your style, you can put out one snappy looking subject with plenty to look at without all that high dollar photo-etch stuff. Keep doing what you do and I will keep watching. If I can ever get anything out of the box, I'll build something. I am so out of practice my next build might look like a third grader project.
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.

Thanks, George. Can always count on you for great feed back. I'm sure your builds would be awesome if you choose to get back into it.
