unfortunately,
due to lighting.
it's really hard to see How much work you have put into it.
And believe you me, lighting is a PITA!!!
But from what I can see,
it looks Excellent.
And Decals alone in those NASCAR kits Must be Tough.
Really nice work..
And infamous delux soon to be Known as
Famous Delux :D

It looks great! The only thing I see is that you have the head light decals upside down & on the wrong sides.

To each is own....

Try getting yourself a bottle of Solvaset decal softener. It will help the decals lie down over complex curves & contours better.

Don't take this the wrong way, I'm just trying to help you build more accurate representations of your favorite driver's cars.

great build!!! Junior is my favorite driver as well..

you gotta love Mike's powerslide decals!!! I have those decals to eventually build that car myself.

as far as the solvaset, once you've used it, you'll wonder how you did a nascar build without it !!
