Hey Juan, WIP is work-in-progress. I have both of the kits you are talking about and will someday get to them. I really like the C9s. Good luck on your build!
Yup, I figured a second after posting the reply... Loads of WIP photos coming right out!!!
Hey Juan, i have this kit waiting to be built so i will be following also!
I'm pretty sure you will get them out of the boxes soon, super excited just seeing the parts in it.
By the way, I have heaps of great good friends in Australia.
I would not use that silver. That is Tamiya's answer to Alclad Crome. Take a good look at the silver on the pic you posted TS-17 is a better choice for silver car bodies. a liitle white added to the silver gives it that creamy silver you see on Porsche and Mercedes cars.
Thank you for the advice, you are absolutely right, the correct Mercedes color is the TS-17... I will keep the Metallic for smaller parts.
Nothing like jumping into the deep end Juan! This should be a good one, take your time and you should have a great looking model when it's all said and done!
Deep end indeed!!!... Ordered the Carbon Fiber kit from Scale Motorsports (Also their Photo Etched kits before I realized the kit had one inside).
Never done Photo Etch or Carbon before so I'm kind of freaking out just thinking about it.
Ah!!!, on top of everything... I received a message from Estrada saying the decals are in back order and would be a couple weeks before they get them in
