When it became forbidden to advertise tobacco products, some sponsors were creative enough to fool us!

I used for this car Testor enamel paints. The red is a mix of bright red and fluo red. Then I airbrush a 2K Urethane clear coat before applying decals, and another thick layer at the end, a bit of hand polish and here you have an unique "gloss coat hand polished" mini-Z Body!

Olivier,
Any chance you could post a picture of the back? Did you paint the insets on the left and right of the tail lights black? I am working on a GT1 currently and trying to figure out the best way to paint the deep insets.

Thanks.

Cheers,
Jim

I solved that problem by painting the entire rear section black.



Several examples of the real thing 1996 doing it that way as well.



Even if I wanted color on the rear, I think I would do it the same; paint the whole thing black, then paint the little strip below the tail lights after, either brush or mask/spray.

Hoping to stay true to form of the real car so that is why I am wondering if Oliver painted those insets.

I have one picture showing the rear, but not very well focused. The paint scheme is like on the original car. So you have black in the 'Sigma' shape, black for the bottom diffuser, and a white triangle over red. Hope it helps.
