This is the 1998 #6 Eagle One Taurus driven by Mark Martin in the
Winston! This is a Revell 1998-99 taurus kit with decals from slixx.
Painting and decals:
The chassis is light gray. The body was airbrushed with light gray
inside, then masked from the inside and primed with testors flat white
on the outside. I then airbrushed the outside with testors gloss
I then masked and applied the testors gloss black. I then started on
decals by applying the hood, roof number and rear deck cummins
decals. I then applied the body side, front and rear red and orange
and the door number decals. I then applied the contingencies, the rear
quarter Eagle One, the rear side cummins, and associate
decals between the door numbers and the rear wheel wells. Lastly I
applied the head light, grille, little blue ovals front and rear,
taurus, Roush Racing logo and Valvoline rear panel decal along with the
#6's front and rear and the bosch decals. Over this I applied a coat
of testors high gloss clear spray. The body for this one as well as
the 1998 Eagle One and regular 1999 cars were painted a long time ago at
a time before I started using the testors clear top coat model master
an airbrush which lays down a much thinner coat that will not yellow as
bad as the heavy spray on white! Lastly I painted the center caps,
hood and trunk pins and fuel filler and painted and installed the clear
Hope you enjoy it! BTW, I almost forgot... I did the same mods on this
one that I did on the 2001 UPS car as far as the "Too wide track itis"
I explained in detail and I stole an exhaust from one of my 2000-2001
for it too!
