Scalextric Camaro chassis and interior(V32 rules require the interior), Patto's peel and stick decals, Tamiya bright red paint, Plafit mounting foam for the intake cover.

Looks like the light reflecting off the ( :ph34r: ) plastic track... :o :D

Seriously, nice job Chris... one Q though... why have you got a Mustang chassis under the XW and a Camaro under the XY?
Aren't they the same body (requiring the same chassis?)or did you just adapt what you had??

Just curious... looks great!
How did you find the peel and stick decals?

Easy the XY is a Super falcon with the Flared gaurds so the Camaro chassis fills out the gaurds better.

Many of the US guys seem to be having problems with his water slide decals curling up and won't bend to the curves of the car.

I though he had sorted that problem some time ago, but they seem to be still having the problem so are using the stick and peel even though they are thicker they must be bending easier.

If you ever have trouble with Patto's peel and stick a little bit of warmth will soften the vinyl up and assist both the conformability and the adhesion. It's a shame he's not using a finer vinyl though.
Computers. They'll never catch on.

Patto has fixed the curling up problem but the new decals are stiff and the instructions say to put the decals in hot water and then use a hair dryer if needed to get them to fit. I just went the easier option with the peel and stick.

I find the peel and stick very good and easy to put on and relocate if nessesary. Also you can decal up a car in an afternoon and it is ready to go, no need to clear coat them to protect them like water slide decals.

A lot of Pattos users find the Peel and stick decals to be OK, but I find them too thick and prominent on reflective surfaces of the car....Several coats of Klear help "flatten out" the decal but Patto's waterslides are still best IMHO, even if you have to use strange methods to get the decals to conform to difficult curves. I understand that the waterslide problems should be resolved by June, but we will see what happens.

So you're the cause of all these problems!....I might have guessed. What is Bruce using now an Alps of some description or has he gone all hi-tech with a laser?...Or did you sell him a job lot of those old Tasmanian Newspaper printers that you were so fond of... :D .

Bruce changed to a new printer some time ago and offered his " old" Oki and Kodak printers for sale so I took advantage of the opportunity to buy a great decal printer,I have since brought a new Citizen as well.
I don't know what sort of printer he is now using BUT he seems to be having problems with the water slide decals BUT the stick and peel seem good even if a little thick, BUT that is always the case with self adhesive.

Next up the John Goss Kevin Bartlett XA Falcon.
Used Tamiya brilliant blue and semi-gloss black, don't know why I bothered with the semi-gloss as it became gloss when I put the clear coats over.
Chassis is a Plafit Super32 with MJK rear tyres and inserts are Fly Ferrari rims painted aluminium and black and trued down to fit into the standard Plafit rims.
Decals are Stubbo's.
