Lotus 98T John Player Special

This is the Tamiya 1/20 Lotus 99T backdated to Senna's ride in 1986 using the Museum Collection decals.  The build is otherwise box stock.  Paint is Tamiya spray decanted and airbrushed.

Revell Kurtis Midget

I've had a couple of these kits in my stash since they came out in 2010, but when I picked up the V-R-M decals for them at the IPMS Nationals, I had to build one.  The kit is pretty straightforward, but a lot of the parts are really delicate and require some care and patience to get right.

 

I added some engine details, rear nerf bars, and seat snaps, but the model is basically box stock. Paint is Tamiya Metallic Red and Racing White decanted and airbrushed, followed by some Omni clearcoat.  All the chrome was stripped and repainted with Alclad and Metalizer.
