NEW! #5 HENDRICK CARS CAMARO 2021 CHAMPIONSHIP WINNER

Kyle Larson won his 10th race of the season to secure the 2021 NASCAR Monster Energy series Championship!

This will be a special edition sheet. To get your copy, please go to our Facebook page and send us a PM:

https://www.facebook.com/3amigosdecals

This sheet was designed using a 1:24 Powerslide Camaro resin. We added white underlays and copies of most of the decals so you can do any adjustment or double up the decals.

Build your own replica of the Championship winner of 2021!

Can anyone suggest a good match for this car's blue paint?

Try Tamiya TS44 Brilliant Blue. Looks pretty close to me, but it may be a tad darker. Not totally sure, but that’s what i would start with.

Question for Sam:

The decals on the sheet look to have a darker shade of blue than that of the actual car. Is this just a symptom of two different images registering the blue differently? Or is this true?

Other than just eyeballing it, how do you verify the actual color of the decal numbers and letters with the real car?

We take a look at lots of photos of the car to see what would be the most accurate color for the car. In some photos, the color may look too light or too dark, so we try to check what would be the right shade of color.
We print the decals in a laser printer, so we can´t do exact color matching, so we use the closest color we can provide.
In the print sample, the colors look a little darker than they really are.

Thanks, Sam. Saw a custom diecast posted on your Facebook page that looked darker than what Larson's car looks like on TV looked. Got decals coming so, hopeful for a good project.

Decals arrived this morning and look great.

Nicely packaged, too. Everything kept clean, tidy and crease-free after a cross-border trek and delivery across the snow covered expanse of Her Majesty's Timbered Dominion™.

So, are they light blue like the photo or dark blue like the preview ?

In between. I'm happy.

Always depends on what light you're viewing something under. Pictures can be tricky to judge, too, so I've piled up a lot of different reference photos.

A backlit car can look very different than when it's front lit. Color perceptions can vary between sunny or cloudy days, under the sun or under the lights.
