Here is photo of the bottle. They also have "Red Gold" shade available, which might be better match for suspension
elements. But I didn't have it at the time and gold colour is quite a bit different on photos depending on light conditions.
So, I've decided to use what I had.




Long time no updates. But finally I have something to show. All the time in between was spent on painting small details
and preparations for main paint job. Past weekend I was finally ready to do it. To simulate blue colour for this car, as advised by
haguemodels, I've mixed TS15 and TS57 in about 1:1 ratio, adding a bit more TS57 in the end. It is likely not perfect match,
but having seen only photos of real car, it was not possible for me to know proper matched colour. I think it looks acceptable.
I've used TS26 for white areas. I still have to mask and paint blue on lower parts of doors, however first I want to wait till white fully cures.
Didn't want to dismount parts yet, so I've just arranged them on flat surface in locations similar to their later location on car.



Usage of Tamiya TS sprays, which dry hard and glossy, will allow me to skip intermediate clear coat and go straight to decals.
Base paints from Zero or Scalefinishes, would have required thin clear coat before decals could be applied. So, next update will
be in a long while, when I finish CF and livery decals application.

Re: McLaren F1-GTR short tail by MFH

Finally I have something to show after a long while. There is so much CF on that car, that after 3 weeks I'm still not done with
even a monocoque. However for a change I've spend about 3 hours on main livery last weekend. Here are photos of the progress
so far.

The photos are a little bit small, but IMHO the blue colour looks very good. What paints do you use?

I've mentioned paints in email. I've mixed Tamiya TS57 & TS15 in about 1:1 ratio based on advice from haguemodels.

Updated photos to the copies with preserved correct white balance. Yet blue might still not be 100% correctly represented.
It was photographed under artificial light and likely somewhat overexposed.

Here is link to flicker set with original photos - http://www.flickr.com/photos/7950184...7641141466393/

More decals were applied on the weekend. Just few small ones remain to add. Then I need to finish CF work and clear coat it all.
