The Lotus is finisht and i can't sit still, i have started this new build of the Jag.

I did already some paintwork on the engine and primed the body. The pics of the box and content is from the WWW.

sticking to old school! I like it :)

 

I think you should go with the same shine as your lotus paintjob, it would suit this perfectly!

Thanks! I thinks that those old cars have more "soul" than there modern counterparts, same with the F1 cars, love the 60/70 cars more than the new one's. But this is a endless discusion. :)

 

We got some color!

The wooden decal are a real pain in the ***, 10/15 min soak in water and it still goes of difficulty. not easy to fold it on the dash and door's. tear easy.

The tyrres are sanded in the meantime.

The color is sea blue and the clearcoat is diamond 2K both from Zero paints. The interrior and engine is Tamiya paint and flokking from the scalemodeler.

I painted the trimline around the windows and want to ad the self-adhesive trimline, that was a big disappointed, the glue was completley dried out! now i let the paint dry for a couple of days an see if i can spay them.

Finisht! 

@imster, tough about it, but to late!. The kit is a dream exept for the windshield and the rear  window, they are so small, you got 1 a 2 mil to glue.

the original trimline is not sticky anymore, so bmf or spray it. the chrome wheels are the best i ever seen.

 

I made 2 little misstakes whit the superglue, it's a little thick, so i got 2 little threads of glue over the bodyshell. in time i try to polish it, for now i leave it.
