Is that a 355 in blue? Looking good.
Good Luck!

Thanks, guys.
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.

It warms my heart to see Ferraris painted in anything but red :lol:

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

Nice work Gregg.

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!

Glad you're able to participate. Join us when you can.
