Curious as to who will print the decals for these kits. Who does Salvinos use for their stock car kits?

In the kit I have they are Powerslide decals printed by Cartograf. Top of the shelf stuff. (Joey Logano - 2023 - Ford Mustang)

Michael is doing the artwork for the kit decals, but will not be printing the decals included in the kits. He will be creating decals for other cars, and offering them on his website.

1- The Salvinos Dallara kits will be 1/20th as they feel they will sell better in that scale internationally.

2- There will be a Honda engined and Chevrolet engined version. Only 1 engine per kit.

3- There will be two aero screens molded so that they can back date the kit to produce Helio Castroneves Indy Winner. Probably only one aero screen per kit.

4- The test shots arrived the week of Feb 4th and they are test building with an aim to give feedback to the tooling manufacturing company. The test shots were first shown Feb 6th.

5- The first four kits will be Newgarden, Sato, Larson and McLaughlin.

6- The kits will be molded in multi color similar to Tamiya kits. The plastic coloring used will not bleed through white primer.

7- I see Indycals has some 1/20th versions of their decal sets already listed to order from their website.

This is FANTASTIC! I can see myself getting at least 2 or 3 of these. No more need to hoard the Tamiya kits anymore.

Well down here in New Zealand, I’m going to have to get a McLaughlin version, but will want a Dixon car as well. Surely that will be forthcoming?
As for price, our NZ dollar is even more of a South Pacific Peso than the Aussie one, so it won’t be pretty…but it will still be cheaper than even a 1/43 MFH kit🤷‍♀️
