This is the 1998 #6 SynPower Taurus driven by Mark Martin in the
Brickyard 400! This is a
Revell 1998-99 taurus kit with decals from slixx.
Painting and decals:
The chassis is light gray. The body was airbrusherd 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 model
champagne glod metallic from a can. Next I applied a coat of high
clear from the can and it was next masked and the testors model master
florescent red was applied to the rear spoiler. I then started on the
decals by applying the hood, roof number and rear deck cummins
decals. I then applied the body side decals,and the door number
These went on well but I cut them at the bottom of the a pillar and b
also at the rear of the rear quarter windows to make it easier. I then
applied the contingencies, the rear quarter SynPower, 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 Eagle One decals 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
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,
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
that I did on the 2001 UPS car as far as the "Too wide track itis" which
explained in detail and I stole an exhaust from one of my 2000-2001 kits
for it too!
