The arc where it follows the upper body line of the car is wrong where it runs along the top of the rear quarter panel

Fred Cady did decals for '70 AAR, probably to fit the old MPC body. These might come closest to fitting the "new" Revell, if you can find a set.

I dug out my Cady decals a few days ago and it looks to me like they were sized for the Monogram 124th scale bodies....maybe I need to check again!   TIM

I hoping to find someone who makes a white strobe stripe for something I want to build. Only a black stripe is in the kit.

The other issue with the strobe decal is it is too long. I’m in the process of finishing up my AAR & whilst applying the decal noticed it was too long for the body & needs to be trimmed to fit.

Try Ray's models he makes them in 1/25th scale  https://rayskits.com/decals/

He does sell decals for a lot of muscle cars.   I'm stil trying to get someone to get the side stripes for a 71-72 Mach1 or Boss 351 to look more like the real thing.  Not sure how long an order takes from the Netherlands to the USA.

He shipped to Canada very fast when I ordered some decals last year !

I used the Candy decals ages ago when I did my AAR. Made the cover of Scale Auto, back then. It was based on a Monogram ‘71 ‘Cuda. Decals fit great!
