    Never let it be said that James can't build spectacular models. There is just so much to look at and admire. Thanks.

    That is a very fine example of effective detail painting and weathering. The chassis looks spectacular.

    The name of the documentary is the title of this thread.

    You've proved conclusively that those Heller kits of classic French subjects can, in the right hands, be built into very fine models. They do repay a modeler's patience. 
    I love the colors you've used. Tres bien fait, mon ami.

    I use Tamiya TS paints decanted from the spray can for my airbrush and mix them to suit my taste. That's is what I would do in this instance if I were building this Audi. As I said, I see lots of red in that particular picture of that particular orange. I'd start with the TS-12 or maybe TS-56 (Brilliant Orange) and add TS-49 (Bright Red) until I got a match.

    Scale Finishes also offers an Audi color called "Samoa Orange" that is probably suitable. I would just use Tamiya black and orange. The photographs you linked to don't capture the colors well. The orange looks like it has a lot of red in it.

    Shaping up real nicely. I can almost see it completed.

    This is appealing to me:

    Every update you post makes  me happy. The engine bay is looking very good indeed. There's so much detail at that scale and all the little wires and tubes and hoses add to the overall effect. Keep it up.

    Not really. He sent me a clarification via messenger. But thanks anyway.

    That's a very nice gesture. But I agree with your wife on this one and no amount of sweet talking will change my mind. Your life should be all 1/8 Citroen Traction Avant all the time!

    Maybe I should have addressed this directly to Matt.

    Why is everyone being coy about the subject? What car is it we are talking about?

    A very cool project. I love seeing these cars built. The version at the link you provided is insane. I can't believe how hard some modelers work. 
    I'm currently working on a Hasegawa Lancia Stratos, which is a great kit. 
  15. Chillyb1 added a post in a topic Tamiya spray fine gray primer application question   

    Harry Joy answered for me. Use primer but don't waste the Tamiya stuff. I use the Color Place gray primer from Walmart for everything except bodies: it's cheap and it works well.
