Wow. Very nice and interesting paint scheme. Did not know it before.
Perhaps you could have thinned the paint a bit more to get a more even surface.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm not technically satisfied yet, so I'd like to make the same one someday. However, this plastic model has become difficult to obtain.
Stan Traas said on October 14, 2021
Pay no attention to the thinning request. The original was likely painted with latex house paint applied with dead brushes and/or popsicle sticks. You've modeled a perfect contemporary finish. I very much doubt that this was a fancy CA custom shop finish!

An excellently built model and a nice paint job, Seiji!
A very rarely seen scheme.

Thank you for your comment. I am enjoying painting so that I can do my own.

Fantastic...a great build of an iconic car!
Thanks for your comment. Ever since I knew about this car, I've always wanted to paint it.

Seiji, great paint job. I'm sure the original was brush painted too. So for the accuracy police you'd be in good standing. Of course Janice would be singing Oh, Lord buy me a Mercedes. My friends all drive Porsches . . .
Two thumbs up.
Thank you. It took me a while to get the plastic model after I wanted to do this painting, but I am satisfied.

Something off the beaten path. I like it.
Greg Kittinger said on October 11, 2021
Thank you. I would also like to pay tribute to the original painting.

This is a wonderful first entry, Seiji @sjk
Really colorful paint result.
Welcome to this great modellers community.
Thank you for welcoming me. I will continue to post.

This is really nice.
Yes, the car was hand-painted. I saw her driving it "back in the day" when she came for an interview at a publication I worked at then. The car looked really strange, parked out there on Brannan Street in the then-"warehouse district" south of Market in San Francisco.
Thank you for sharing your valuable experience. I'm glad to see mine as well.

Seiji: that looks great! What a good choice. How bout tackling John Lennon’s psychedelic Rolls Royce for an encore?
Seiji KIMURA said on October 13, 2021
Thank you. John Lennon's Rolls Royce, that's interesting.

" my friends all have Porsches I must make amends.." Far out!
Porsche is far away, but here in Japan, I have the MX-5.
