1/12 Ford GT 40 (remodelled)


Recommended Posts

It is, I bought it as the magnifier kit but its the original trumpeter kit reboxed.

I have it stripped (now just have to strip the paint off)

Oh, that's cool! Scifi elements could actually suit the GT40 well, it's a pretty retrofuturistic body shape, after all. I wouldn't go too crazy with the body colour, maybe some adapted version of some real racing livery?


Scifi vehicles loosely based on real ones are generally a cool concept, Space battleship Yamato is one of my favourite designs!

Hi all, so what happened here.

Both parts were painted at the same time, with the same primer and the same top coat, I decided to give them a second coat and this happened

That’s a shame, Ken. Apparently the paint layers react unfavourably with each other, but weird that one part is ok and the other not.

You read my mind John, I was wondering whether to query the installation of the flux capacitor but you got there first!


I'm not sure about this one - at first I thought "NO! Sacrilege!" as I'm inordinately fond of the GT40 shape, but seeing what's going on with it is fascinating, wonderfully creative and makes me smile too.  I can't wait to see how it ends up...

They were the themes I thought I could see developing, I was just about to say so and there you two were already! 😆
