Yes, that is what I'm afraid of...   Is hard to keep up with so many forums...  I'll probably stay put here.

 

The McLaren looks awesome...   B)

Like Jonathan, I am not trying to hijack your build thread but I did tell you I could provide a link to my Supra.  It took me a while to find it.  This was my 2nd ever 24 hour build.  I can give you more details if you like, (about the 24 hour build).  Anyhow, it was not painted.  I polished out the body.  This is how the 24 hour build "Brolin Rule" came to be.  The "Brolin Rule" states that all models must be painted. :D

 

But I digress.

 

Interestingly you have mentioned other forums.  The link happens to be to a board that I am a member of.  I am also a Mod.  There are a number of people here that are also over there ;)   Here it is.  http://themadmodelle...lay&thread=2316

Feel free to check out my other builds on the board.  I go by NachoZ there too.

I did find your Supra Thread while researching on the decal difficulty issue...  Yours looks really nice John!!! (I'm impatiently waiting for the call from the guy that is going to help me with mine)  B) 

 

Back to whites...

I know I've got some crazy color on these parts, but the idea was to visually balance the front and the back  :P

The miniature decal marathon....  (Right after I applied the clear, I noticed they are missing a long decal that goes on the rim)...  Clear is fresh, so I guess they will have to come after.

I also finished the undercarriage on both cars, will post pics tomorrow.

Toss those tires in a drill and hit them with some sandpaper to give them the used look.

Thanks Jason, I tried that before and I honestly dont like the used tire look (At least not on this type of car)...  As a matter of fact, I even use glossy clear after I apply the decals (Which is the very last thing I'll be doing since ruining the set on the Blue Supra).

 

I ordered a set of Tire Stickers from Estrada, you know the square ones seen on the tires when they are new?

I wish they would sell the chalk writing decals too...   That would be super cool no?

 

The ones from strada are 1/20 and they are GoodYears, but that will have to do (I'm only using the rectangular production code decals).

Take a white or yellow grease pencil or a colored pencil and sharpen it to a nice point and do it yourself.
