  1. Thanks! Yes, the low angles show its beautiful classic lines, a timeless even modern design for a 60 year old car.
  2. Thanks a lot! Gotta admit I don't know, didn' really care because you don't see it normally. Kept the black plastic colour.
  3. #4/2023 After the Lotus 72 not that long ago, my dad now finished another legendary race car. Well, it didn´t turn out "perfect", but which model does? Fujimi kit which dates back to 1989, this is the 2000 edition. Thekit decals weren´t usable, bought aftermarket ones from Slotracing Werk in Germany. They applied fine but once when dry they became a bit brittle, had to do some touch-ups with white paint. Tire decals are from Indycals. They are printed on a full decal film, to say the tire shape had to be cut out. As far as I´ve seen on original cars, the letter style was a bit different and the decals show a newer style, but better than nothing. Didn´t install the rearview mirror. Micro Klear didn´t work out and plastic or CA glue would have been to dangerous for the windshield, which btw didn´t fit that good and also was slightly too small. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235119141-le-mans-legends124-ford-gt40-mkii-1966/ The model shows one of 13! GT40 used in the 1966 Le Mans race. It was driven by US Americans Dan Gurney and Jerry Grant. The car didn´t finish the race.

  4. Do you mean slightly shine-through or cracked decals? Only area with shine-through is the side stripe being slightly visible in the side number decals, but on the lighted pics you don´t see it. Regarding cracks in the decals, did some touch ups with white paint.
  5. almost finished rest of the windows, mesh on the rear and front light glasse attached btw, didn´t install the rear view window, didn´t work out with Micro Klear and plastic or CA glue was too dangerous, didn´t want to damage the windshield DSC_0001 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0002 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0003 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
