some more cockpit progress
engine and trasmission are not that detailed but you won´t see much of it afterwards
don´t know yet which colour to use for the rims, painted silver/aluminium for now
looking at pics and videos of 1966 they look darker and sometimes have a golden touch

the kit decals are c**p, they tend to tear apart, no good quality
but my dad somehow managed to apply the instrument decals by securing them with Microscale Liquid Decal Film
gonna buy aftermarket decals for the exterior
getting ready for the marriage

redecided and doing a military version 😄
some primer applied
and finally some paint, used AK Real Color Signal Red
used a black marker for the window/glass frames
the windscreen has to be inserted from the inside, sadly it´s not a good fit
the other windows gonna be inserted from the outside
started with the aftermarket decals which came from
although they are sealed with clear coat, still the one or other little piece brakes off, have to do some more touch-ups
Goodyear tire decals from Indycals

Fantastic GT40, Reinhard @grimreaper
Excellent progress done, thanks for sharing.
Those Fords were, and still are, very impressive cars.
