Finally finished. Took 86.5 hours to complete. 12.5 of that was for the decals which are inkjet. Paint is Model Masters acryl shot through a Paashe vl airbrush. The clear is Pledge Floor Care formerly known as Future applied with a wide soft bristle brush.

Here is the only reference picture I had to go by, so there was a lot of guessing going on.

That's a beautiful job!

How did you get the inkjet decals to stand out so sharply, especially on black paing?

It's white decal paper I purchased from micro mark. You have to apply the decal, then etch around the outside of the decal and remove the excess decal material with a tooth pick and a tweezers. It takes forever and not much fun but the only way you can do white inkjet decals on a dark car that I have found that works. Thanks, Foxer, for the question.

Here is the decal sheet I used. You can see I make a lot of extras because its easy to mess up these decals applying them.

The license plate and guages were printed on photo paper and then just cut out and glued in place.

You did an amazing job on those ... I do a lot of decals and knew they had to be on white paper, that had to be one tough job getting them to look so good.

I've thought of using my wife's Silhouette Cameo when I needed letters cut but haven't done anything this complex.

I use a #11 exacto blade but it has to be fresh and new. When the blade starts to drag you have to replace it. luckily they are relatively cheap. Thanks for the reply

That's another one of your old racecar builds which looks 'so right'. Great build, and thanx for the WIP as well.  Cheers
