  1. Kurt Busch’s 2018 Monster Fusion

    I prime and paint the wheel, then I use a Xacto blade and carefully scrape away the paint/primer down to the bare plastic. I then use either a yellow or red Sharpie to color the stripe in.
  2. Kurt Busch’s 2018 Monster Fusion

    I guess I should have put this at the end of my reply... 😎
  3. New Revell NASCAR Fusion kit, Powerslide decals over a flat black Tamiya paint. I lowered the car to reflect the no ride height rule for 2018.
  4. Kurt Busch’s 2018 Monster Fusion

    Got the chassis done and the final stance dialed in... should be done in the next night or two.
  5. 2019 Motorcraft Ford GT

    The kit is decent... it had the typical Revell flaws... sink marks, fit issues, and the thickness of some parts is terrible. The kit has the red, white, and blue Le Mans livery inside. I used aftermarket decals because I am worn out on the standard livery and wanted something different.
  6. Been messing around with this for the past few weeks... Revell Germany’s new Ford GT kit. The decals are from Indycals. Here’s where I’m at....
  7. Kurt Busch’s 2018 Monster Fusion

    Wheels are done... I also got the glass installed in the body for a quick mock up.
  8. Kurt Busch’s 2018 Monster Fusion

    No, I am not coating this with anything. The real car is flat with glossy vinyl decals and that’s the look I want.
  9. Kurt Busch’s 2018 Monster Fusion

    Decals are all done. I was able to get them over the flat finish with minimal silvering.
  10. Kurt Busch’s 2018 Monster Fusion

    I understand that, but the decals on the real car are glossy and that’s the effect I want. If I dull coat over the decals I lose the gloss. I’ve been at this a long time... I know what I’m doing.
  11. Started this the other night. New Revell Ford Fusion kit with Powerslide decals. The car is flat black so I used Tamiya rubber black. The skirts were shot with Aztec neon green. I’ve been carefully cutting away the excess carrier film to minimize silvering of the decals.
  12. Finally done!! These decals are awesome... done by Powerslide and are a must have.
  13. Finally got the new Powerslide decals in for this. They are fantastic in every way! I’m hoping to have this wrapped up soon.
  14. 1993 Texaco Havoline Lola

    It’s the 1/20th Scale Tamiya snap kit.
