Darell Waltrip Tide Monte-Carlo
Posted by mikemopar70 on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 6:05 PM

Hi!

Here's  my latest.

Model built from the Monogram Dale Earnhardt Monte-Carlo i bought without decals.

Decals are provided from Powersilde, paint is white automotive basecoat, with Model Air acrylic Fluorescent orange over Hugger orange basecoat.

Yellow stripe on the quarter panels is hardware store spray paint.
And of course, it's been coated with PPG urethane celarcoat to even the finish, before the decals application.

Tire lettering has been done with the Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland Template.
This kit has been built out of the box!

I can't find an internet address for Replica's and Miniatures only a phone number, and I'm in the UK.

Gorgeous! This paint scheme was so striking in its day, and your build replicates this nicely.

That is an iconic graphics scheme from that era. It seems even if you didn't watch Nascar you knew about that one. You did a great job on that
