  2. Thanks for all your tips men. I have a few extra grills for my '63 ford that I can practice these techniques on.
  3. Greetings gents, Anyone have any good tips/results with making molded in chrome headlights look more realistic? Perhaps a paint trick or something else? I always hate seeing these, rather than separate clear lenses. Thanks in advance for any help.
  4. Ford 390 engine decals

    Thank you sir.
  5. Ford 390 engine decals

    Good morning gents, Does anyone know if a decal set exists that has the ford thunderbird type 390 engine logo? Thanks in advance
  6. 1/8 Scale 1980 Trans-Am

    Matt, that looks pretty good to me. If your skills as a builder have progressed, maybe a light resto/update is in order. But from the pics, it looks fantastic!!
  7. Looking for certain Photo etch scripts

    Thanks Greg. Looks like a great resource.
  8. Looking for certain Photo etch scripts

    The 53 ford set has that too. Thats the one I went with.
  9. Yeah, I was afraid that they may be the manufacturer, as opposed to the retailer. Just have to hope for some luck.
  10. Looking for certain Photo etch scripts

    I'd like to see that Ray. Thanks.
  11. Looking for certain Photo etch scripts

    Never tried that method before, but I'd be curious as to its process. But I did find a PE sheet on Model car Garage for a '53 Ford Victoria It has a "Fordomatic" script that has the same font that i'm looking for. Just have to trim off "omatic". I think I can make the rectangle part as a decal.
  12. Greetings gents, I am in the process of building a '63 Ford Mass. State Police cruiser for the MSP Museum in Grafton Mass. The car I am using is a '63 Promo model, donated for this project, by fellow forum member, Tom Sheehy. In the interest of accuracy, I would like to replace the existing fender script from "Galaxie" to the lower trim version, which is simply a "FORD" script. Please see the attached pics. Does anyone know of a photo etch sheet that contains something I can use? I have looked on all my usual sources, to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help provided. Jay C.
  13. Just looked at their website and they don't show either one. Good suggestion though Doug, Thanks.
  14. 2017 Daytona ARCA cars

    These two were both built from Team Caliber 2006 Fords. They are essentially the same car, just two different versions, test and race day. I built these as a gift for my friend Dave Lebeau, a long time local racer, who got a chance to run a few races in ARCA, for Norm Hutton Racing. The decals are custom made and both cars were painted in automotive grade paint and clear. The most challenging aspect was the race day cars, black to yellow stripe fade. I have also included pics of the real cars. Thanks for looking.
