This is the Revell Dale Jarrett UPS Taurus.

For colors I used Krylon Short Cuts SCS-053 Gloss White and SCS-035 Espresso. The brown was a bit off from the kit decals, but fairly close. The chassis is SEM 61113 Chassis Gray.

I added a thin strip of plastic at the top of the hood to reduce the gap between it and the cowl. I also added the jack posts since I broke off the ones molded on the body. I also added some plastic strips inside the front and back of the body so it would sit better on the chassis. Everything else is stock.

The kit decals seemed to work fairly well. There was a bit of silvering and the hood decal didn't want to conform on its own so Solvaset to the rescue. Tire decals were Powerslide.

Nice work. I always thought it was neat that a color combo you would think wouldn't work well like brown and white actually made for a really cool looking racecar.

Nicely done.
What did you do for the ductwork? It looks very convincing.

Thanks. For the ductwork, I paint them aluminum and then use the Tamiya Panel Line Accent Color for the black. This is what I did for the radiator as well. In the past I've created my own black wash for this, but the Tamiya is convenient and the bottle will probably last forever.
