Here's another project that's needs help to finish.

It's a kit bashed Altered that uses a AMT 25t parts pack body, spare parts injected 327 chevy engine, with a Revell Tony Nancy kit competition trans, AMT Fiat Altered chassis. front spoke wheels and straight axle from the parts box, Revell pie crust M&H slicks, rear wheels and axle from the parts box, and finally a scratch built roll bar and interior cover.

I need help with the decals to finish. See enclosed pic of real car. Anyone out there that can copy and print white  lettering decals?

Wonderful!

 

Man, where do you guys only get these models?  I know you bashed it, but even then....how long has it been in your stash?

great build, white lettering will be tough to do without the right printer.

I've been wanting to build this car for decades, but couldn't find the right parts. I had gathered several parts but couldn't find the right body.  I had an original AMT 1925 T kit but didn't want to take parts from it. Then Round 2 rereleased it.

That's when I saw an AMT 25T altered parts pack on Ebay. I saw that and the altered wheel wells were perfect for this car. I won the auction an was inspired again.  With the right parts it just came together.

Still have a problem completing  the lettering. I need to find someone who can copy and print white letter decals.
