    Thank you for the reply. Rattle cans are what I normally use. I've heard Tamiya TS 50 Mica Blue and TS 36 Fluorescent Red are a match(?)

    Those are probably as close as you are going to get in "major brand" spray can paint.

    As for the black window support bars, I too tape off the windshield and back glass, but instead of a sharpie I spray semi-gloss black paint.  Same idea.

  2. Beautiful models!!  I've been going to sprint car races since 1964, and you've captured several eras of sprint car racing very well.  I have the Grant King #20 built.  Will post pictures eventually.  The King sprint cars with a full cage were easily identified by the "pinched" top of the rear cage hoop.  Grant Kings's shop in Indianapolis  still exists and is owned by a former sprint car racer, Bill Throckmorton.  Part of the shop is a "museum" of sorts, dedicated to Grant King and the many cars he created.  They generally have an open house during the month of May near the time of the Indy 500.

    Thanks. I'm working up the courage to attempt to build my IMC 2E kit. That should be a challenge! LOL.

    I built the IMC 2E kit a few years ago.  It really wasn't terrible.  Best advice I can give you is test fit EVERYTHING!!  it is very difficult to get everything to line up properly, but it can be done.

    Question for you....did you use the kit decals on your build or aftermarket???  If you used aftermarket, whose did you use??
