First completion this year.
Tamiya's Williams F1 W/ transparent body.
I decided to paint half the body and leave the other half clear. the paint took three attempts. I don't know if it was old paint or the winter weather( I paint in my garage) or air brush problems or what. I am lucky the purple bond did not damage the transparent body.
Had difficulties with the decals splitting on me also.
Not one of my best.
I am thankful to the usual great fit Tamiya is noted for. They are realy great kits.

I still have to paint the cover for the gas filler on the painted side.
Other than that it is done.
