Body designs, paint and custom displays by
RAY FELLOWS: aka RAYNODA!
The " Sun-Noda style " and my style in general, comes from my extensive Art background and from the things I painted back in the 60's when I was a young lad.
I painted the
first "Sun-Noda" with the Sun theme on a " Hugger Thingie body"
back in 1968 as a way of seeing my car better on the track and to distract other
racers, lol lol.
Coming out of the 60's, I went on to college and spent a decade studying Art and didn't do much with this hobby. When I picked back up the hobby again later.., I naturally retrieved my old slot-cars and there was the Sun-Painted Hugger car and I said, " Wow , I still love that paint theme ". The rest is History.
