McLaren 720S - Alpha Models 1/24


Recommended Posts

Finally finished something! This is Alpha Models' 1/24 McLaren 720S, built OOB with Zero Paints' Pearl Red ZP-1440. It did have an initial coat of McLaren Papaya Orange, but after seeing one in this colour at the Goodwood Members Meeting I thought that the orange was a bit 'meh' and decided to go for the red instead. It's a Pagani colour but I love it. Also I found a company that does steel brake conversions for the full-size 720S, so it also has steel brakes rather than carbon discs.

I've got a couple more Alpha kits in the stash and can't wait to get onto another one. But first I have a race car or two do finish. Oh and if anyone at Alpha is listening: PLEASE do an Aston Martin Vulcan!

Lovely job, really like the colour and that's an excellent finish! What clearcoat did you use?

I was going to use the Zero Paints lacquer but after a test with Mr Color Topcoat I used the latter. I haven't polished it yet and may also give it a panel wash as @Ade H suggested above.
