DOT #51 Mello Yellow Lumina

10 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

I always wanted to build all the Days Of Thunder movie cars since the kits were released, but I only ever managed to build the #46 City Chevy , its one of my favorite paint schemes (even if fake) .

Last year at the swap meet we have here, I bought two of the DOT kits, well now its time to start building them ;) .

So using the #51 Mello Yellow kit, I am going to use a set of Power Slide decals instead of the kit decals. So far , not much is done, the entire kit has been primered (molded in black), and the chrome striped

Here is the Powerslide decal sheet

Great idea. If I had the room I always thought a small diorama of DOT would be cool.

And got the black on the body, dont whats going on, but I have been having issues with painting, I think it has something to do with the primer. I will be sanding and doing one more wet coat
