Just got word that my new, custom-made 1/32 decals are on their way from a lovely guy in the States. He was advertising a set of home-made decals for a 1/24 model kit on eBay - they were for Kevin Harvick's Busch Series Chevrolet - and after a bit of negotiation said he'd try and scale them down to 1/32.

Apparently the operation has been successful, nurse, and I can look forward to having the dayglo colours of Reese's Cup chasing round the old oval within a couple of weeks.



My other half is an organic fruit and veg addict, and just the thought of a big gob of peanut butter encased in chocolate makes her feel ill - all the more reason, therefore, to chase her John Deere tractor-liveried Taurus down with Harvick's high-calorie mean machine!

Anyone who's interested might like to check out his website... Xjarhead decals

It certainly makes a change from the usual Tide/McDonalds/Citgo liveries from Scalextric.

Getting good quality unusual decals can be really difficult - let us know how you get on with these.

And some finished shots would be great!

Cheers,

So far I've used Slot Car Portal and N-Decals. The N-Decals are strong on quality - there's no colour bleed at all - but there's not a heck of a lot of choice.

Meanwhile Slot Car Portal supplies Patto and other makes. With these decals you tend to get two sets on one sheet, and it's advisable to take your time, apply one set and then apply the second over the top.

It can be like wrestling a bear but the results are worth it.

I've put these two on eBay to try and pay for a track big enough to run a club, but the results (from Patto's) are pretty cool...
