I've recently returned to the hobby and spent time on a '40 Ford Coupe learning my mistakes and areas to improve. I'm now building a '29 Ford Highboy with a blown Ardun flathead (many Replicas & Miniatures parts) which hopefully will meet my goals.
I have a theme for this car based on a Von Dutch pin stripe design that was shown in the back of a recent Hot Rod magazine. Lo and behold the Revell '32 Five Window Coupe kit has two decals of that design (one white; one black).
My dilemma is whether to use the decals. I am hoping that the paint job (gorgeous metallic, pearl candy) on this model - which will include painted flames - will be great, so I'm wondering if adding a kit decal will be too much, will mar the look, will not look realistic...? What would you do?
