  1. Very nice job and perfect execution of a pretty difficult colour scheme, looks stunning, well done Gary!!
  2. Looking really nice that!! Applying the decals is always my favourite part, it brings the car to life
  3. Looking great!! The small silver holes on the seats remind me of the Ford GT40. I think there is a photo-etch set with all the rings separate. I would imagine it would be a real challenge to line them all up!!
  4. Looks very nicely detailed. I have quite a few Beemax kits. Not built any yet, but I must admit they look excellent..
  5. I've got this to build eventually. I knew that Marlboro masking job was going to be tough!! It will clean up and look good, no problem
  6. It's a common problem trying to match paint to decal colour and almost impossible. I remember visiting the Donington GP Collection many years ago where they had many McLaren F1 cars from the 80's and 90's. None of the decals on the cars matched the painted areas exactly. After that I gave up trying and just went with whatever paint I preferred.
  7. The Nissan 240RS is Ral 3024. Tamiya TS-36 is probably the easiest to get hold of in a spray can. Or you can sometimes get Ral 3024 mixed into a spray can on eBay. When I finally get round to mine I'll be using Mr Color #173, which is what is recommended by Beemax, but you need an airbrush to apply it..
  8. Looks very nice, impressive!! The colours look accurate too, especially the yellow/orange. I look forward to building mine as the '86 Rac version after watching yours unfold...
  9. Depends what I'm painting, but for example a car body which I'll always prime using either Tamiya aerosol primer, or Mr Surfacer 1200. Sometimes on non body parts I will use no primer at all. The Mr Color lacquer can be sprayed straight onto the plastic with good results.
  10. Maybe not add it at all? See what it looks like. Or paint it the same blue as the bumper to blend it in?
  11. It's looking nice now, nearly there Gary. That guard at the front does look a little odd? On most of the references I have, you can't actually see it. I know the instructions say to paint it in white, but I'd be tempted to paint it black myself. It looks like it should fit further in and not hang down as much? I'm no expert mind, so I'm not entirely sure...
  12. Wow, that's a real beauty!! Which Zero Rothmans Blue did you use? There are several different one's on their website?
  13. This is the tarmac set I have https://www.spotmodel.com/product_info.php?products_id=51639
  14. When I watch videos on YouTube of the 86 RAC Rally, the car looks fairly low. I think the tarmac suspension add on I have would look pretty much correct.
  15. Yes, I'm not sure if they ran the cars with tarmac wheels and tyres, but a gravel suspension set-up on the RAC? I'm thinking gravel suspension with tarmac wheels and tyres myself..
