Hi all,
Finally got around to putting this classic F1 in my showroom.
Not my favourite F1 car but with the extra detailing I think its made it a bit prettier! It does go well with the rest of my F1's though.
I had a good look at the real car for reference hence the alloy foil here and there, its tricky to use but it does look the poodles plums.
Both wings were covered in it & a strip in front of the side radiators, the air intakes on the top and the tail pipes !
The side rads were masked and airbrushed matt black as are the steering pieces and the small area on the body above the steering.
The chassis was new so I decided to give it a polish up.
The only used parts are the body and the Acoms gear.
Enjoy and I hope you like it ;-)

Very nice work on the paint & details.. 😆 Using an airbrush i'm guessing?

Thanks Cooltoys,
I remember you helped me out with the Celica lb pictures years ago now !
Hope you are good,
I only used an airbrush on the matt black bits, the main paint was all done with Tamiya TS spray cans,
The glossy finish though was just countless hours of flatting and polishing and very achy fingers !
