Actually, I did a yahoo search and pulled " Mclaren F1 " and it came up with a bunch of kewl stuff. I was thinking about using one of the paint schemes. I believe that these models are static models.

The Lark is burned on me. There is something about hot pink and dark grey that says "Race Car!" .

They all look good. The pink and grey is an eye cather.

These are nice. I especially like the Lark car. Wonder if the decals are available somewhere.

Roger,
If you use that "Lark" color scheme, you may have a fight on your hands with Fraz. If not, you probably won't have the only pink car after he sees that Lark. :p

That's ok, I like to see fraz in my rear view mirror or when I lap him. j/k fraz :). But, in all seriousness, we have great mini-z battles. One the other hand, 1/8th scale nitro is a different story ( Pull-ova, pull-ove Frazier ) hehehhe

hey it would be awsome if some one figured out how to do decals on z tires :D

i think maybe the square sponsor decals come with some.

other than that if you can print waterslide decals on an alps printer you can make white lettering decals. the other option is to find someone to make clear vinyl white lettering decals

the only bad part about that option, is how would you get the sidewall width to run them? f1 tires?

if 1:32 slot car tires (http://www2.mini-zracer.com/gallery/album585/IMG_0496) can have lettering there is no reason why mini-z tires couldn't

For a price, I'm sure they could.

Here is my white body Mcl project (http://www2.mini-zracer.com/gallery/album581?page=2) . Nick named OW(orange/white) Mcl. Still a WIP. I have to paint the rear still. It looks too plain right now. It has silver flake in it similar to the Murcie. I will have to take a closer photo to show that.

My favorite has always been the Lark scheme. I'm actually starting on my own this week. Decals are the only problem though. Don't know where to find a scan of them.

Check out these pics:

Well, i'm cheating with my McClaren. I'm getting the Gulf autoscale body. :p I should have it in the next week or so i think. I was looking into a blank body too, but have not heard back from my source about them. :cool:

I already cheated too and picked up the Gulf and Kokusai. Wish they would just make the rest that they have licenses for in 1:10, namely the Lark, Fina, Zero, SOK but I think you have to acquire licenses at each scale so you can't just make as many as you want for different scales.

If you have a cheap source for the blanks, mind sharing the info? ;) I think I bought the last ones from the store here.
