Petty STP Dodge Challenger

Petty STP Dodge Challenger

Materials:
Kyosho Dodgel Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye unpainted autoscale
Krylon Fusion Satin Black
Krylon Fusion Matte Fire Red
Krylon Fusion Satin Lagoon Blue
Molotow Liquid Chrome 2mm pen
Gundam GM08 paint pen

Future Floor Polish
Pattos 43 STP Retro 2019

After completing the tribute Camaro Pace Car, I've been on the hunt for more retro Nascar livery that can be applied to currently available white bodies and stumbled upon the tribute Petty Challenger's that have been done since the relaunch of the Challenger. I narrowed it down to this particular model at the moment however may do the more traditional late muscle care era hockey stick strip version later. My only gripe with the decals are, the ****e tends to be a little to transparent however there are few that can print white to begin with so it's a bit of take what you can get. A good solid white is not easy to do on decals.
This one was simple in terms of paint scheme. It's two primary colors with unfinished white stripe and some black accents. All the body colors are paint with only the sponsor graphics in decal. For the wheels, I went with a traditional yellow stripe around the wheel and decided to leave them white. On the next one, I may do the same stripe on a traditional black wheel.

Really nice! When I think of stock cars, I think of Richard Petty #43. The little white stripe is nice, and the decal/paint meld is superior as always.

I was planning on doing this same theme, though I was thinking of a more blue dominant version, like his RoadRunner/Superbird on Challenger white body

Yeah, something about the Petty blue that just looks like instant classic. I might get some appropriate decals and due a solid Petty blue version. I have a livery for the Camaro as well, look forward to seeing that one in the near future.

I know there is a 'The King' livery available as well and seriously tempted to do that as well.

That was what I was really thinking. I have a son who is now 16, and there was a period of several years when we lived in a Lightning McQueen world.

Sometimes I think "duh!" when I realize I haven't made a custom windshield decal of giant eyes.

I'm also tempted to get this one just so I can stencil the hellcat graphic on two color bodies in any color combo I choose. Very similar to how I stencil cut the Godzilla Advan graphic.
