Is that a 355 in blue? Looking good.

The black is flat black that I polished out, no clear at all, just Tamiya polishes and paint.
Trick I found is not to use polishing rag to do the work.
I used Q-Tips, and we (Jairus and I) put this tip in our column.
When you use a polishing rag or cloth, you have no control, I don't care how small you make the rag around your finger tip, you are still polishing or removing paint using a scale area of about a foot or more!
It's like polishing with a tent!
Using a Q-Tip you get precise control, and virtually no burn through.
The blue is Tamiya I think either Mica or Metallic Blue

Those are going to be great models Gregg. The Marnello is going to be sweet.

Nice work! Black is a great color for a Maranello, and the F355 looks like it's 30 minutes from being done 8)

This is what I call cool beyond words...the magazine editor actually building models and participating in the forum. A true man of the hobby!

That was flat black! That is one beautiful paint job. Can't wait to see the finished product.
