Scale I Build

Found 4 results

  1. I am finished with Bill Elliott's 1999 McDonalds Ford Taurus. Building the model was simple enough. I lowered the front stance a little, added photo etched grilles from the Model Car Garage. I was actually pretty happy with the paint job, I have liked the gloss that I get from Krylon paints and have finally figured out the surface prep to keep it from pulling away from the edges. The decals were another story... even after applying a clear coat they still came apart on me, but it was a good exercise in patience. I came really close to purchasing two sets but I saw so many little discrepancies in the decals themselves that I came to the conclusion that it will look good sitting on the shelf and that I would call it done and move on to the next one. Speaking of the next one, I'm working on Bill Elliott's 1989 Coors Thunderbird now. I will be using the Powerslide decals on this one so I don't expect any issues.
  2. I'm all done with Bill Elliott's 1998 McDonalds Ford Taurus. All box stock with the exception of the photo etched grille and scratch built flat exhaust. I lowered the front and rear, and added a little plastic to the front air am to make it sit lower in the front. Also, this is the first making the rear spoiler support braces. I thought it would be really hard but it wasn't as difficult as I expected. This was my first NASCAR Taurus build and overall it was more fun than I was expecting. Up next for me is the 1999 Taurus. Its the same car as 1998 but with a new paint scheme. I see some decals by Madame on ebay and some other sites, but I'm not sure I want to use them. 3 Amigos has the 25th anniversary decals for the 2000 car (which I can't wait to build btw). I may try to use those decals on the 1999 car. If anyone knows of another source for the 1999 decals (first year with a black roof) please comment below. Also, I welcome any suggestions or tips, its always fun trying something new!
  3. I’ve been going through a stage lately of doing cartoonish themed racecars. The hood was actually quite easy. I always use Walthers solvaset for my decals and it works great.
  4. Alongside the Chevy on the bench just now: No polishing just yet. That'll happen over the next couple of sessions then I'll leave it all to cure for a week before masking and airbrushing the yellow dividing stripe. Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment. More later this week or more likely beginning of next week. AFN Ian.
