Update 1 | 08.05.2024
I would like to present my next modeling project in 1:24 scale - Ford Thunderbird from the American NASCAR racing series.
 model will be a miniature of the Ford driven by Davey Allison No. 28 Texaco-Havoline from the Robert Yates Racing team.





To build this classic, I will use the Monogram 2961 #21 CITGO T-BIRD STOCK CAR model kit, the painting and decals of which will be changed. I will use Powerslide decals printed by Italian Cartograf.



















One of the main changes, apart from the color scheme of the model, will be the rims. I will replace the wheels, which are very poor in details, with SCO rims and tires (SCO-R052), in which I will use bolts (SCO-R048) and valves (SCO-R055) dedicated to NASCAR. Additionally, I will install brakes (SCO-R053), which the model does not have in the original set. I will enrich the tires and rims with tags and the manufacturer's logo using Powerslide decals.









The basic color palette is black and red. Typically, I will use Tamiya and Humbrol products.





Time to start working!
