You have a nice touch, the starburst behind the flames really sets it off.

You take a jewell of German iron, mix in classic hot rod flames on black, with the artistic touch of the French, and out comes Merveilleux. I guess that is how it is said.

very nice job! Love the rims. I used to paint custom paint work on race boats and autos. In order to get the best finish when aplying flames and other graphics was to apply a clear coat after each color coat or graphic. This clear coat can then be color sanded smooth for the next color or graphic layer. The final clear coat would seal everything and then could be color sanded one final time and then buffed to a high gloss finish. This method prevents the unwanted orange peel sometimes seen in custom paint jobs. It might be difficult to do with such a small body and you probably arent looking for such a detailed finish, but its worth a try. We were able to add catylists to the paint to speed up cure time between coats. Not sure if its available for hobby paints.

That is one awesome ride! Too bad the real Porsches didn't come with that kind of paint job.

Shelby : thank you for your tips. I try to have a high detail finish with a perfect coat, but it's not easy on this scale ... I have to find the best coat for water based acrylic.

Herman : Yes, we go to tracks and make a lot of runs. There are a lot of tracks in France but most of them are "private".

Sporttracguy : Yes it's a full airbrushed paint job. I make the design on my computer, i print the stencil. Then i take a kind of film for masking and i cut it with a sharp knife. I'm not good enough to make a free-hand airbrush paint ... for the moment

i thought soo... i browse that site frequently. i used to post there as well but i was sort of turned off by some of the attitude i got for not posting in perfect french even though i don't speak it.

i still think that site has some of the most creative custom paint work i've seen. other than mini-z bar.
