*** rusty wallace – mgd pontiac ***
🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
Seeing that it has been a short time since I last posted under the HEADLINE side of the forum. I was sending these pictures to my brother, since his CD of my works was damaged, I saw that this model has not been posted in the forum, so I took the opportunity as I sent the pictures too him, I also posted it here.
This one was made some four or five years ago. The decals used are those produced by CARTOGRAPH and sold under the POWER SLIDE name. In my opinion … the best NASCAR decals out there to date.
The bands of YELLOW (WHEAT HARVEST YELLOW ) are actually painted. These decals, although I consider them the best, I really don’t see them conforming to the curves and detail in design of the car, especially the FRONT CLIP or FACIA. I opted best to paint them, besides I enjoy painting. The paint is mix with RUSTOLEUM ENAMEL PAINT. I used yellow and red. I used the decal as a guide for the color. A few years ago, I contacted MGD via e-mail for the color, they were very friendly and kind enough to send me some brochures and pictures of the color and of the car itself. I of course was delighted and sent them pictures of this build and of the THUNDERBIRD RUSTY drove ( I will post that one soon ).
Turned out I mixed it right, I was worried I might have to repaint.
Any way … here she is … 🙂 .
