Bill Elliott 1999 McDonalds Taurus


Recommended Posts

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.
