71 Road Runner #43

This is a 1/43 resin kit of the car the King ran in 71. Simple kit but very old probably 23 years old. Its not holding up as well as others I build during the same time frame. If I knew of replacement decals for that body I would rebuild it. IMG_1281_zpsb1de0b40.jpgIMG_1277_zpsd3ac3a7a.jpgIMG_1275_zpsc118e916.jpgIMG_1279_zps793df391.jpgIMG_1273_zpsfa584caa.jpg

You came to the right place Mark. Beauty of a build. What Blue did you use for the Petty blue. I want to say it's really close but that could be the lighting. B)

Thanks Kevin! I used #43 blue from Realistic Racing True Match it was available in the mid to late 90's. It was available in 3/4 oz bottles and spray. I think I used the bottle, You may already be familiar with it.

That explains the match! Those paints were excellent, if a bit ambitious. I think they overestimated the market for them. Hey check your private messages. ;)

Isn't that the '72 Road Runner? The grill and taillights look like to be a 1972 model...

if i am not mistaken 71 and 72 were the same car only the side marker lights were different 71 has a 3 segmented marker, 72 is one piece

Really nice job, especially for such a small scale - those 1:43 cars are just too small for me - good for you
