Nova SS Street Machine

Recommended Posts

Got this finished up the other day. Loved building it. And, it was my first time actually spraying the rally stripes. I have tried decals in the past with major failures. I used Dupli-Color for the first primer coat to see and body work that was needed. after wet sanding and drying I shot it with Tamiya primer followed with Tamiya's Bright White. After sitting for a few days I masked off and shot the Tamiya Bright Orange color coat followed by Testors Wet Look Clear. I built it pretty much out of the box with the exception of the wheels. I wanted to go with a more period look. Anyway, enough babbling...

I agree with everybody else -VERY, VERY nice looking Nova!!  -I too like painted stripes over decals. Decals and I are NOT friends.

Very nice clean looking build. I agree with the others on the stripes. With the Cowl Induction Hood it's almost impossible to get the decals to lay down.
