I understand that there are companies that offer my star style wheels, ladder bars, letter tires etc. these days. Any of you model pros intersted in building a 1/25 scale clone of Moneymaker?

Hey Alex,
I'll write you an e-mail to make arrangements, but basically pictures of all 4 sides, interior and engine compartment and then basic specs written (paint color, engine, rim/tire sizes and type and special equipment).
I'll fire a letter off tomorrow (it's already today for you), cuase i need to get to bed!!

That's cool,Duane! How are you going to do the lettering? I wouldn't have a problem with the stickers,but the lettering stops me. Do you use a photoshop program,and print it on a mylar or something?

Taht one has me thinking also. I have heard of using the computer to generate them, but also heard of some outfits up here that will make custom decals. So I will be checking into it and let everyone know.

You can buy sheets that feed into your inkjet printer to make a "water slide" decal. I have never used them but have seen kits that have used them. They look pretty good. It's cheaper than having the decals made if you have the computer programs to create the artwork.

I know... a contest! Alex sends out 5 model kits, and the best one that comes back gets a $100 dollar gift certificate to Moneymaker Racing! The runners-up get the models back, with his autograph.

Well, what is the status on this? I keep forgetting to ask. I obviously remembered this time around.
