Default Show me your Fantasy Liveries

and I'll show you mine!

I'm still a novice with making decals for myself with the computer and printer. Most of the time I attempt to do period cars with period historic realism but sometimes I go a little selfish and just do what I want. The entrants from the Cheetah proxy were discussing next years liveries and what is period correct. So I wondered how many of us do our own thing too? It is a hobby.

The Castrol Scalextric Taurus is my first attempt about 5 years ago. Just the cheap "white car" with an assortment of decal scraps. Sure is easy to follow on the track. I think I eBayed her last year.

Then the Sox got real good and I made a baseball Camaro. Again from the cheap "white car". It has since been repainted.

Next I had a friend make some Butterfinger stickers in his sign shop when the boss wasn't looking. My racing is kinda butter-fingered anyway. The grille smilie was my idea. The kids like it. It just makes me hungry. Still got this one.

Last was a recent Flyer Riley I pinstriped flames on but the decals again were left over from my scraps of modeling over the years. Anybody remember the Pepsi challenge? I think it was back when they launched the New Coke. (no the other coke!)

Neat stuff . I especially like the Riley. Here's my favorite -- from a plain yellow Pink Kar Citroen CV. Like yours, the decals were extras or scraps.

My first and still only custom paint decal job. I think it would look great on the track vs your Pepsi car! I have more I am working on. I need someone to make me some Sinclair Oil decals for a Scaly TransAm I want to build (I am a Sinclair, so I think it would be a fun livery).

My Coke Racer Riley...

It's not posted here because it's not a fantasy livery. Likewise I didn't post the Led Zeppelin McLaren. It's not a fantasy livery either, but has been mistaken for one.

My bad Greenman, I forgot... it's the Francorchamps car [not a fantasy livery] in the thread "Slot Classic Ferrari 250 SWB".
