1994 Leader Card Financial World Lola T93/00 Indy Car Decals

Randy Owens Art Car

1994 Leader Card Financial World Lola T93/00 Indy Car Decals (Randy Owens Art Car) by Upscale Graphics (no longer available).  A single 5×7.5 decal sheet and 3 view drawings are included.  This decal sheet lets you build a version of the colorful Randy Owens paint scheme used on Buddy Lazier’s car in 1994 and is designed to fit the speedway version of the Tamiya 1:20 scale Lola Indy Car.  The Leader Car team campaigned a T93/00 in 1994 but you will have to ignore the fact that Lazier’s car was powered by an Ilmor engine, not a Ford Cosworth and that it was only raced as a road course version.  He did not qualify fast enough at Mid-Ohio, did not start at New Hampshire  and at Vancouver, he retired after 16 laps.  The only photo I have is from the Autocourse Indy Car Yearbook and it shows a road course version with a totally different stripe pattern.

I built this kit 15 years ago to IPMS Out-of-the-box rules.  I added Carbon Fiber decals to the interior and bare metal foil heat shields for the exhausts.   Paint is Testor’s Model Master Gloss White with a coat of Future over the decals.  The decals went on very well from what I can remember.   Wheels are Testor’s Manganese Brown Metallic over black plastic.    Tire stickers are scaled down copies of a photo of an actual tire tag.  This model won Best OOB and 1st place in the Open Wheel category at the 1997 IPMS Nationals.
