I just finished this kit - good kit with lots of detailing possibilities. I used Indycals decals, Zero 2K primer and paints, and Gravity 2K clear.

  1. Great build. Good to to see it in the politically incorrect scheme of the time.Tobacco might kill you but it financed a lot of high performance vehicles back "in the day".

  2. Nice work...I enjoyed looking at your collective work as well.

  3. Inspirational build. I have a couple on the shelf that are tempting me. Where do you get your painting supplies? Do you risk mail ordering paint / clear in the winter?

    • I live in Canada so my source for Zero Paints is Hobby World USA. My source for Gravity is direct from Gravity in Spain. Word of warning, don't deal with Gravity USA out of Florida - they are the worst and, according to Gravity Spain, are not a valid manufacturer of Gravity paints. I've ordered in winter with no issues and it gets downright hellishly freezing here in Ottawa.

  4. Good looking 956 Richard, nicely done in r*#^+@=s colors, we should be able to model things as they were !

  5. Lovely build there sir.
    I always liked the tobacco co`s livery's, now ironic with lack of sponsors in F 1?

    I remember building the J.P.S. Lotus back in the late 70`s, the gold decals against the gloss Black finish was eye catching.
