Does anybody knows if some company already made the new livery of alex zanardi bmw z4 gt?
For personal matters and local neighborhood to his doctors for me is very important to collect everything from this italian Hero.

I find it unbelievable that no model company has chosen to produce a kit of Alex Zanardi's touring cars. The man is the definition of strength and courage and an inspiration to us all.

Thank you David, i know that decal sheet, but is not this newer car he will use during competition.

Just I remember when I was working in wtcc..everybody there , and i mean EEVERYBODY was supporting Alex, even if from a different team..
great guy and great pilot, his adventures in american IRL was amazing, like that passage at Laguna.

I just hope they will make this decal sheet soon, is a truibute for him, absolutely deserved.

Alex is a man! I would definitely like to build one of his cars in his honour!

I already bought a fujimi z4 gt3 and created the vector art to do the gold and regular cars (the studio27 sheet is not complete). What I need now is time to assemble and paint the kit...Maybe a WIP will come by mid-year.

I also have the same desease: collect everything in kit about Alex! maybe we can exchange a list of Alex's kit because it is very possible I'm missing something...

As you are a decal producer, maybe I can send you the vector art I've created so far. It would be great also for me to have them printed by a company; as of now I planned to have them custom-printed by Fides in Italy. Just send me a PM if you're interested.

I loved watching this man race. He was the reason CART was so successful. That horrible crash, the near death.....then making a comeback. The true definition of TRUE GRIT.

I took them in Valencia November 2006, it was Alex's first time back in a F1 car.

He was such an incredible person to meet.

Alex in those days is fighting a terrible battle.
Last week he fall from his bike and he broke his clavicle. Nearly funny was to hear him in radio talking of it like nothing.

Who broke it knows what terrible pain it gives, and surely is even worst for him cause he must do everything with arms only.

Keep fighting Alex !

Just received the ones from decaldoc.
Decaldoc version depict the Baku race version. From the image of the decal in previous post I can see there is a little error with a reversed "k" in the hood words. I also can't see if there are the yellow stripes that go in front rims and the Italian flag on the hood. Finally I can't see some decals for the windshield: the "R" labels and the 3 coloured circle.
It seems decaldoc provides a second sheet, maybe it contains what I listed. It also looks like decaldoc provides white decals for background of the coloured ones. Has you have it on hand, can you confirm?

The RacingDecals43 version will depict the car as raced in Zolder and also Portimao as they were identical.

dont really understand what u mean with reversed K. in my sheet everything seems ok.
Vedo che sei di peeerma,magari scrivimelo in itaGliano che ancora lo capisco :D

no yellow marks for wheels in decals,but think they can be easy to paint.

the second decal sheet they always provide is a silver base to make all light colors shine better on the body. Used theme over my 458gt2,as well on my bmw gt2 and they work really great, even if the decalizing process time becomes longer. This for me is not so big issue. :)

Here is an image to show you what I mean:
http://imgbin.org/images/22685.jpg (http://imgbin.org)

On left the decaldoc decal, on right an image of the 1:1 car. The k in the decals is upside down.

I'm too picky? maybe, but I've looked at almost 1GB of reference images while working on my personal version of the decal artwork, so...

Sė, e tu di Monza vedo! proseguo con l'inglese cosė le osservazioni rimangano anche per quelli straGnieri ;-)

True, less easy would be the flag on the hood and the markings on the windshield. What about the Pirelli Pzero logo on tyres? I can't see if they are provided.

That's a nice addition.

So to sum it up, to make an accurate Baku version you'll need decaldoc+racingdecals43

the K is correct.
I dont see that italian flag btw as well as there are not the pzero markings for wheels. this maybe decaldocs are meant to slotracing use?
