    Thank you everyone! I have some great info to work with now. Exactly what I needed. I will post some pictures as soon as I get it done......gonna be a little while, but the work has begun!

    Great work!! Thank you very much. I'm going to try it out, I just want to make it look original!

    I'll try that! Not sure why I didn't think of that....
    Thank you!

    I may have stated my questions incorrectly! I am not necessarily looking for which paint to use (although that is helpful) I am wondering which brushes to use to get clean lines, and if it is possible that there is an easier way (like a fine tip paint pen) to get the correct lines and letters? I am not a sign painter, or pinstriper, but I can draw, just not sure what tool to use?

    Any chance you could find out what kind of brushes or other items he uses or recommends to? I can do the lettering etc. I just don't know what to use to apply it, or if there is such a thing as markers or paint pens that are fine enough and user friendly enough to do it?

    That's what I want to avoid! I have plenty of "vinyl guys". I would like to paint it on instead, just to make it more realistic.

    Race car lettering
    I am wondering what others are using to letter their race cars, (fine tip markers, paint brushes, etc.) I am building a couple of 1960's short track cars, and really want to paint the numbers and sponsors on it like the real cars were (before vinyl) Any suggestions?

    I have a similar question, which grit sandpaper should I use to wet sand the color before I clear coat?

    Slowly in the process of organizing a work room, and building things to help consolidate the mess! Here's where I am so far, still lots more to do!

    Thanks everyone! Yes, it is a bold color, but it looks so nice on those body lines!
    I posted my paint problem in the model building questions and answers. I started with the wrong paint and didn't realize it (Napoleonic Violet is a flat paint) so now I am trying to get it repainted, cleared and floor polished to get a decent shine!
    More to come soon!

    Here are a few pics of my current build......if I could ever get the paint to turn out the way I want, it might get finished!

    Very impressive so far! I love Galaxies, My kid sister currently has a 65 500XL, white with a 352. Can't wait to see this one complete! Keep up the great work.

    Very nice! I like the color, can't wait to see it on the body!

    Ok, that sounds good to me! I will try it out and see how it goes. Time to get this build done.... Thank you Tony!
