  1. Dear all, Another 2nd hand Ebay-find: This weekend I've finished my latest project and first DTM hero, the AMG Mercedes C-Class DTM in D2 livery. And what a livery it was to get right... Obviously I kind of knew what I was getting myself into, but this car is almost entirely wrapped in decal sheets. As an almost 30 year old kit, the decals were cracked and fragile so got a replacement set from Decalpool. At first sight good decals, but it appeared later that the two sheets of decals had different shades of blue, where this should be the same. So I ended up using the original fragile Tamiya decals for most dark blue sponsor decals as this was closer to the massive Decalpool D2 decals that were part of the white D2 pattern... Also two decals were not printed correctly and the level of detail was less than the Tamiya ones so it was good to have some alternative, but I'm not overly enthusiastic about the quality of Decalpool. Next project is the Calibra DTM for which I also have a set of Decalpool replacement decals, they seem to have a better quality. Fingers crossed. The kit went together well, except for the body on the chassis. Al seemed ok, until I stuck the glass in and suddenly it didn't really fit nicely anymore. There were large gaps between the body and the glass and the body didn't fit anymore on the chassis as intended. Ended up with cutting as much glass away where possible to make it kind of fit. Still a bit of a gap between pillars and glass, but at least the body fits nicely on the chassis. As the interior is quite empty and large, I added some wiring which is not visible on the pictures anymore. And I trimmed the exhaust tip 3-4mm, it would stuck way too much out of the bumper compared to the real car. Car is painted in TS-17 Gloss alu with TS-13 clear coat. Wheels in TS-29 and TS-79 Semi gloss clear coat. I had the same experience with TS-17 and TS-13 as with the CLK-GTR, they really don't seem to go well together. As was suggested earlier, I'm considering another clear coat when using TS17. Anyhow, quite happy with the end result. Great DTM era this was, so this car will be accompanied with its competitors in the future; a Team Joest Opel Calibra is next in line and then the J├Ągermeister Alfa Romeo 155. Thanks for watching and any comments/suggestions! The CLK-GTR can be found here
  2. A nice model to construct with the usual Tamiya good fit and reasonable amount of detail. It wasn't too difficult to enhance although reference material for this actual spec wasn't overwhelming. The body colour is Zero paints Jagermeister orange, 1057 finished with Tamiya TS13 clear, several coats polished with micro mesh cloths. The Tamiya decals are fairly good, although the 'Jagermeister' type and the logo were surprisingly thin, I replaced with an (I have to admit) unknown aftermarket set. Carbon fibre Twill weave decal is 1/24 from Scale Motorsport #1024 and #1124 Carbon Fibre, on certain elements of the ducting in the engine bay. Racing harness is my own artwork, inkjet printed on 80 gsm paper, with Scale Motorsport hardware. There's a good deal of additional 'wiring/plumbing' in the engine bay and interior, using a variety of wires from Top Studio, Replicas of Maryland, 'scratched' brake reservoirs made from Evergreen rod. Weathering/dimensional highlighting/panelling lines is predominantly MIG 'Dark Wash'. Heat exhaust staining is airbrushed Alclad 'Burnt Iron'.
  3. Hello everyone, I'm looking for any clear images of the 'boot/trunk' area of 2000-2002 CLK DTM race cars. I've had a good search of the auto forum and the big old web have found nothing useable... Apart from some really good builds! Thanks for any help offered.
  4. Recently I have obtained red bulls 2010 title winning rb6 from both tamiya and a maker called DTM. Just be warned this first post is very photo heavy First the tamiya one, most have already seen this so i dont need to waffle on to much about it apart from i have purchased the top studio cockpit, bulkhead and wheel nut sets for it also carbon decals from studio 27 and a few other little bits so here's the tamiyas car The tamiya one will be done as the brazil gp version with the previously mentioned detail sets and a bit of detailing under the engine cover Now for the next post for the DTM car Shaun
