1963 Fireball Roberts Southern 500 winner


Recommended Posts

Just finished this one. MCW light purple metallic paint with Tamiya pearl clear overcoat. AMT kit. PPP tires and wheels. Many scratchbuilt items. Homemade inkjet decals. 139 hours to complete. Wanted to do this car because it was Fireball's last important win.

That's a good looking Galaxie, as your builds always are. Big points for making those decals, I have to say that after trying to study some of the computer programs that folks use to produce those decals (Without any success) I really can understand how much work is put onto them. Really great job overall.

Yes you cut around each one as close as you can, then I apply black outline decals printed on clear sheet to put over them to crisp up the edges. Its very hard to get a good edge when you are cutting something out so small. You can see the two sheets on my fotki page.
