Thank you very much for comments, i appreciate it!
I know about the history of the Futura, also about the color and some little details missing at the model (numberplate, exhaust). My point was, that i won't like kind of white on it, because the (in my view) beautiful design will not working properly. Second point was to find a metallic / pearl color, that would have fine metallicparts, wich are in scale for the model.
Kevin, i really thought about the scrapped red Futura to build. But my girlfriend loves this car (her choice out of the shelf to build as next) and she has forbidden me to do it, so we have chosen this color. If a catch another kit of it, i will do it.
That's all your choice my friend. I only took a moment to point out the color for those who may not have known. Because of the display carousel the car traveled with and the way it's seafoam green color reflected off the car, most folks just assume it was a green car. By the way, yes the license plate is missing, but the exhaust is right there in the bumper. Not a lot of folks know but those blacked out ports in the rear bumper are the exhaust. (WHAT were they thinkin right?) Most excellent job on the Alclad too by the way.
