Default U.S. Vintage Trans-Am [PICS & PAINT Discussion ONLY!!!]

I thought I'd start a PIC thread for all the cool TA paint.

Please limit comments and stay on topic, pics & paint. Links to paint ideals, real TA racing sites ok.

POST'EM UP Fellas! or repost if you had posted in the other TA thread.

ENJOY! the Vintage paint.

NEW! The unofficial, Official USTVA Pace Car!


My TC4, 68 HPI Camaro. Sorry for my poor quality pics but all I got at this time. I'm ready to paint another one!

Here's mine. My original idea was blue on the top and the red stripe as the original style but realized way beyond my masking skills.

I add the stars and the blue down the quarter after I saw a picture of the new retro Challenger Drag Pac Car.

Anyway, I hope to get the original style strip on my next one.

FLYING MONKEY

Who makes That BODY? I haven't seen that one before.

INDYRC_RACER

Does the Model Master Paint seem to stick ok with crashing? I haven't tried it, but have wanted to.

I think he told me it was a Pegasus. He said it was rare so i was extremely careful when I painted it.
