Hi fellow TNF`ers,
im currently making a slotcar of the Maserati T61 which Ken Miles raced in 1962 . There is a decal on the car i can,t quite make out. I have been told it could be a USAC oval shaped decal with a sheild in the center and the words "1962 registered car". It does not appear to have the small chequered flags either side. Can anyone point me towards a picture on the internet so i can try and make a decal of it please.

A bit late, since your Birdcage model is already finished, but here is a look at the 1962 USAC Registered Car decal on Frank Harrison's Lotus 18, as driven by Lloyd Ruby at Hilltop in 1962.
