Proud of this but not...

Finished painting a McLaren MP4-12C GT3. Was going to use it until I realized how much time I put into it. Into the spare ASC case it goes.

On a side note I really wish Kyosho would produce some of the current liveried race cars like they used to. I missed out on those. I'm sure some of you would really like to see a resurgence of this type of body.

There are more bodies in painted in an album I just created. This one is by far my favorite of the four I've painted.

That looks really good. Nice work! I am working on a 12C right now as well. I am always disappointed with how fast the paint gets chipped, but I enjoy racing them all the same. I have thought about trying different paints but don't want to spray too much ultra toxic stuff in my basement. I have a small spray booth that vents, but still. . . Where did you get the decals?Are they from Patto's or somewhere else?

If you look under the Autoscale page in this forum you will find a very similar discussion about the lack of race livery or new race cars in autoscales from a couple months back. It seems we missed the golden age of Kyosho making lots of great race cars.

I don't particularly fret over cars getting dinged in use. It's part of the charm of racing highly detailed autoscales vs. generic lexan or lexan with the usual pan style flair paintjob. I don't think I've ever painted something and not run it (if i still own it).

That being said, it looks fantastic. The glory days of lesser expensive licensing has past us by. With the loss of Ferrari as well, I expect things to be much leaner before or if they ever do expand in a noticeable way. Instead, look for more repaints and re-releases. Jump on what you want and if your looking for variety, go buy stickers/decals and looks to make it yourself.

On a side note, I've been looking for decal sheets. As well as gearing up for a monthly purchase of Ferrari ASC bodies. Between them and the old McLarens... I've got quite a stack of ASC bodies happening. They are lots of fun to collect.

I don't think lost is the correct word. More like decided to no longer pay the ransom.

I believe Kyosho Taiwan broke this news on their faceballs page.
