Jonathan it is the revell kit and I noticed something looks off too. The spoiler takes away from the fault so I'm not worried though

Hi Jonathan,

The paint is Tamiya Italian Red on top of Tamiya white primer.

Many say Tamiya is over priced but I would disagree. With the proper prep and primer I have yet to be let down.

I also laid down two coats of clear tonight. Tomorrow I'll polish and clear again. Then decal.

Rob, I agree that its great paint, but I seem to or can get just as good results from model master lacquers , if I had a LHS that wasnt 30mins away I would most likely use Tamiya paints more. I think the next ferrari kit I build I will give Tamiya Italian Red a try instead of MM italian red

I use MM laquers as well and have had good success from them. I wish they had a broader range of colors to choose from in the MM line.

I agree to , the MM lacquer line is really small, what would really be nice if I hobby lobby would carry tamiya paint, since its about ten mins from me. What I find really funny is the LHS dont carry any of the MM lacquer's at all, just enamel which I refuse to use.

WOW ! you guys are cruising along.

Paint job looks good Rob,not bad for straight out the can.I agree with you about tamiya paints.They are my prefered choice too

Kyle and Charles your builds are progressing well.

I got a bit side tracked with non model related stuff.
But body has been prep sanded and currently soaking in dishwashing detergent,will get some primer on it after tea then let it dry overnight.
Whilst the body drys il get evrything else prep'd and start some sub assemblies.Going be a late night need to catch up on lost time,and get everything ready for paint tomorrow.


Keep at it fella's

Kyle, you are just rockin the house here tonight.

Looks awesome man.

Thanks guys for the comments on my red bomb. I am happy with the progress. Almost everything is now painted so a good drying over night will leave me ready to really make some progress tomorrow. There still will be some minor painting to do but nothing huge.
