1/25

Description  

MY APPROACH TO MODEL BUILDING IS TO BUILD CONCEPTUAL MODEL RACE CARS THAT HOPEFULLY LOOK LIKE THEY MIGHT HAVE APPEARED ON THE STARTING GRIDS OF F1, CHAMP CAR, OR SPORTS PROTOTYPE GRIDS AROUND THE ROAD RACING WORLD. MY AIM IS TO AIRBRUSH COLOR COMBINATIONS THAT ARE EYE-CATCHING AND COMPLEMENT WHATEVER DECALS COME WITH THE KIT. I RECENTLY BUILD A VACU-FORMING MACHINE AND HAVE BEEN HAVING FUN BUILDING A LOLA T-222 CAN-AM CAR BASED ON THE OLD 1/20 SCALE AMT MCLAREN M8D (SEE PHOTO BELOW) I AM ESPECIALLY APPALLED AT THE UNIMAGINATIVE PAINT SCHEMES ON F-1 CARS TODAY CONSIDERING THE WEALTH OF PAINT TREATMENTS AND GRAPHICS AVAILABLE TODAY!

Greg,

Love that idea! Paint them the way you would, brings a little more fun to the hobby. great idea vacumn forming bodywork, I guess that way you can try a few different scheme's. Keep on having fun, great work!

Interesting and a smart way to build many times the same kit ( which I love to do). Good airbrushing skill.
