    I'm going to have to try your paint method, that really came out well..  Nice looking model.

    I know you messed up the emblem because it's a Bowtie !  Great job as usual, your paint and foil work is outstanding.

    X2.  Another stunner from your bench.

    I like it!  Just a dab of clear red on the taillights would really finish it off.

    I always liked the Magnum, but apparently not enough others did to keep it alive.  That thing is sinister in black, very nice work.

    Great job, I really like this!

    That's cool, looks mean in black!

    Decals won't adhere to a flat finish, they need a smooth, glossy surface to stick well.  Therefore you need to spray the red first, then lay down a gloss coat before applying decals.  Some folks then put another coat of clear over the decals to seal them but I never have.  If you decide to, test first to make sure the clear your using is compatible with the decals.
    Just a thought, you may want to tackle something a little simpler than the #24 for practice.  That is not an easy scheme to complete, FWIW.

    Just goes to show, never throw anything away!   Great model, I wish someone would do this one in styrene.

    I did a #24 using fluorescent red, it's flat so you'll need to clear coat it after so the decals will stick.

    That is awesome, great detailing.  Your WIP was very informative.

    Or Woody Hayes!  I really like this, always like seeing the lower trim models being replicated.

    LOL I'll have to keep that in mind!  It's been a long time since high school French class, I'll have to do some i'net research

    Thank you Harry.  I know you don't do 1/24 but there are some interesting subjects in these old Heller kits.  I have the Delahaye (as well as the fire engine), a 540K Mercedes, and the blower Bentley on the shelf. There are others I'm looking to snag on eBay.

    Thanks Dann, yes they are decals.  They were very old so I coated them with Microset before application.
