Would you mind post the what the P/E set looks like when you start on it ?
Great minds think alike.... Great job Dave!
Just got the re-release of this kit with the Aber PE detailing kit.... The disc-brake calipers are the bees-knees!! Can't wait to build it!
mine, not blue

The color is a mix of two different Testors lacquers decanted and sprayed through the air brush. Big Bad Blue and Icy Blue. I mixed them to get what amounted to a mild metallic slightly darker big bad blue. Alone it was too flat and the icy blue was the same problem but in the other direction... too metallic. I was nervous as hell but it worked great.
here's a picture of the engine bay as well. I looks AMAZING. Be careful putting the lettering on the intake... you wouldn't be the first to loose a letter. go slow then dab a little clear over it after your done.
