  1. Project - Ryan Blaney's 2018 #12 Menard's Ford

    Looks great! Can't wait to see the finished product. I picked up a few of the Danica Fusion kits and may have to do this livery next...
  2. Ford Fusion road course conversion

    Thanks! I've been using a lot of your builds as reference. They've been very helpful. Unfortunately the car has already been primed and painted so I'll live with the small window net, but I will keep this in mind for my next build.
  3. Ford Fusion road course conversion

    Oh yeah I can get away with replicating the hose, but the ducts themselves on the side windows won't be easy to replicate.

    That would be Watkins Glen. The pit wall is on the drivers side at Sonoma.
  5. Ford Fusion road course conversion

    Thanks! I'm not sure if I can do anything about the NACA ducts on the rear side windows but I'll see what I can do.
  6. Revell Gen 6 chassis color

    Thanks for the feedback! I ended up using what I had on hand. I mixed Tamiya X2 white with XF-19 sky grey at roughly a 4:1 ratio. This is my first NASCAR build and it may not be 100% accurate, but the end result is a very light grey.
  7. Ford Fusion road course conversion

    Hi NASCAR modeling experts, I'm currently building the Revell Fusion kit and have ordered a set of Powerslide decals for Kevin Harvicks 2017 Mobil 1 livery. https://www.mikesdecals.com/mobil-kevin-harvick-2017-ford-fusion-powerslide-271-p-4876.html I'd like to model the car he drove to victory at Sonoma, but I'm not entirely sure what I need to change to accurately represent the car in road course spec. https://www.motorsport.com/nascar-cup/photos/main-gallery/?d=360&sz=9&r=158017&s=-6&oft=47&p=2 The body has been painted in a white basecoat and is about to be masked off for the red. As far as I know this is what needs to be changed: Cut down the rear spoiler Lower the ride height. Remove the driver escape 'hatch', but the car has already been painted so it's too late for that... Add the front splitter. Add 'tape' to the grille? Is there anything else I'm missing? I'm not overly concerned about it being 100% accurate as this is my first attempt at a NASCAR kit, but your input/feedback would be appreciated! Thanks!
  8. Corvette C7.R #3 decals

    The owner of decals4all.eu is printing them for me. PM me if you want more info.
  9. Corvette C7.R #3 decals

    Ignore. I have found what I was looking for!
  10. Corvette C7.R #3 decals

    Bump: The company I had contacted has been unresponsive. I still need the #3 decals with the red background, the white windscreen banner, and also the driver decals that appear on the roof, specifically Antonio Garcia, Jan Magnussen, and Mike Rockenfeller as per the 2016 24 hours of Daytona. I can obtain the #3 decals and white windscreen banner from the Scale Motorsport full carbon jacket decal set OR from Patto's (Both are around $30 but Patto's decals are in 1/24 scale), but I'd still be missing the driver name decals. Patto's doesn't have the above names on any of their sheets as far as I can tell. Does anybody know of a source that has these decals, or could print them? I would normally try Speedway decals but they're not doing any more custom orders.
  11. Revell Gen 6 chassis color

    I've decided to tackle one of the newer Revell NASCAR kits, specifically the Ford Fusion Danica kit. The instructions indicate the chassis should be flat white while other builds and reference photos show it as a light gray. Is there a Tamiya equivalent that I could use? I have quite a lot of Tamiya grays including Sky Gray, which I think might be a close match, but I'd like to hear your opinions and advice. Thanks!
  12. Kevin Harvick #4 Mobil 1 fusion

    Nicely done! What color did you use for the red trim? I just started the Danica kit (first NASCAR build in 15 years) and would like to attempt this livery.
  13. Three Rivers Automodelers 1st annual swap meet

    Bummer! Mainly 1/20 Tamiya F1 kits, 1/24 Tamiya sportscars, 1/25 and 1/24 Revell sportscars, and sometimes dabble in 1/25 classic american/muscle cars.
  14. Three Rivers Automodelers 1st annual swap meet

    Unfortunately not! We were busy all day and I wasn't able to find the time to attend. Are there pics of the swap meet anywhere?
  15. Three Rivers Automodelers 1st annual swap meet

    Nice! I'll be there. Interesting, I'm also in 15235.
