When I was a kid my dad took me to a few races at Great lakes drag way. I saw this truck a couple of times. My Father and I both loved it and talked about it a lot over the years. When I saw the kit I had to pick it up. Here is the most memorable drag racing truck in my life.
I have been thinking about getting this kit for sometime now. So I Had my buddy Joe from HTUSA order me up a Lindberg Big Red Rod. I have heard plenty of issues from different people on these. But I still wanted to build a kit of this scale.
I took a pic of it next to my 1/12 camaro box for scale. This thing is huge.
I am so very sorry this happened to you Joe. I hope your sanding will do the trick.
I used modelsmasters paint and testors "wet" clear coat and have had great luck when painting over decals. I have had issues when decaling a chrome or aluminum painted part. I have to put a coat of cleat on these parts before the decal so they don't bubble. I wonder if your gold paint has the same effect that the chrome and aluminum paint had for me.... I just could not get decals to stick to these colors with out a sealer of some sort first. But I have never had this issue with any other colors.
