I've been looking through my unbuilts, and was reminded that the Fireball 500 and Monkeemobile kits both have updated graphics. Does anyone know of a source where I can get original style door logos for either of these? Thanks!

maybe slipperyartsdecals.com can help? I know they do copies of the originals for the Monogram showcars - maybe they do them for others....
Worth a shot maybe?

In Amazing Vehicular Modeler Special #2 there's a cool buildup of the Monkeemobile by Jim Apitz. In it he says he had the original decals done by Andy Garringer of Spare Time Hobbies.
I have no idea where they are or any details at all, but it could be worth trying to find them...

Thanks for the tip! I did some Googling with the names you gave me, and found that both cars were featured in that AVM you mentioned. So I'll be using that for reference going forward.

Spencer,

All I did was convert Jim's artwork which was done in Illustrator to CorelDraw. I do not work for Spare Time Hobbies. Funny Jim and I were just discussing this yesterday.

I've seen your work and you should be able to make a nice set of decals.

I believe the #1 MonkeeMobile was bare first season, Second season the logo appeared and went almost door edge to door edge.

Andy,

Thanks for the follow-up. I read through the AVM article, and saw Jim's note about the lack of a logo in the first season. After looking it up I decided I really liked the look, so I think my Monkeemobile will sport the original bare look. I also think I'm set with the 500 logos, thanks to some good screen captures and working with another modeler. Once I get hte bench cleared off I plan on getting into these.

Thanks again!
