Mark Martin's 1998 Eagle One Ford Taurus

Left Side View | Left Front View | Right Rear View

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 yellow. I then masked and applied the testors gloss black. I then started on the decals by applying the hood, roof number and rear deck cummins decals. I then applied the body side, front and rear red and orange stripes, 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 little #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 from 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 parts. 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" which I explained in detail and I stole an exhaust from one of my 2000-2001 kits for it too!
