The IMC GT was tough. I am getting ready to assemble what i think will be my most challenging build. The Tamiya McLaren MP4/4 WITH the Top Studio super detail set. At 1/20th scale my eyes will be a tad happier but if you've never seen this detail kit perhaps a quick Google will show you exactly what I'm up against.
Mix up some light bronze metallic and have at it. There is no way that weave will be rendered in 1/24 convincingly. If it is I think it'll be a waste of effort to apply it only to have to use a magnifying glass to appreciate it.
