Still in a Formula One mood...
This is a model I've avoided building for quite some time
I found the paint scheme and decaling involved to be a little overwhelming.
but my buddy Steve A. gave me this kit for helping him move
The Tamiya instructions call for using their unatainable, no longer available MS-5 spraypaint
So contacted Jameston at Scalefinishes for a match...he just so happened to haved the exact color
Mercedes Monza Grey #054 - whch matches the decals perfectly
Found this to be a fairly easy build with the paint scheme and decaling not being a problem.
So here' Mika' ride:
The view most of the drivers had of Mika Hakkinen in 1998:
Thanx for lookin'...
Post add'em: The "West" decals are not included in the Tamiya kit, they were purchased seperately
