Good afternoon, @brithebuilder, @anthonyricco, @gblair, @rory, @bikequeen, @johnb, @fiveten, eb801, thanks to everyone for your kind comments, the nose cone/headlight assembly seems to fit OK now.
So on to the side cowlings, first black on the insides, then a coat of pink as a primer, and a top coat of Tamiya’s Pure Red, all from the rattle cans:
The Pure Red is somewhere between Bright Red and our old favourite Italian Red. On their website says it’s ideal for modern sports cars such as Ferraris, which is weird as Tamiya have deleted all their Ferrari models.
Anyway, I’ll give it a day or so to really harden up before applying the transfers, of which there are quite a few.
As ever, thanks for looking and commenting, it’s much appreciated, and happy modelling.
