    i just bought a really nice red 1968 barracuda 1:18 die cast. I would like to add 69 stripes so it looks like my driver that is in my avatar.

    The car is below and also a picture of a green one that was the stripes I want.

    Does anyone know how I go about doing this? I am not a model builder.

      We have a printing place here that can do just about anything. Banners, vinyl stick on signs, etc. If I was going to paint on a Logo on a car, I'd have them do it for me. They can laser cut stickers too. Check and see if there is a place like that near you. A CNC laser cutter should not care how small something is.

      Don’t leave me out! I need some white 383 ones! That green one is disassembled and ready for some B7/B5 treatment!

      look online and ebay

      there are people who make all kinds of decals for 1/25 cars

      bet there are at least a few who work in 1/18

      Hey 1969383S, are the stripes on yours raised enough that you could trace them?

      You can feel the ridge but tracing would be tough!

      testors makes a decal printer kit, it comes with a program, decal material for the printer and decal bonder spray.they sell them at hobby lobby for not too much money ....i did exactly the same thing to make a 1/18 scale model of mine...the hardest part was finding a good image to copy online.
