I started to work on this. The kit is well detailed.(engine,airpipes to the brakes,photoetched parts etc.)

There is a lot of work on the body(lots of burrs,the panel lines are not enough deep,the hood doesnt fit everywhere)

Thanks!

I was careless,I didn't noticed that the white stripe on the side isn't a decal. tomorrow I'm doing a test on another part to see is it possible to paint a thin white layer on a deep green basic
or i have an other option, it stay green :D
The color : Tamiya TS9 British Green

A thought on the white striping. I would suggest the old spoon test on your paint issue. Think about using Tamiya White primer, since your using Tamiya paints anyway, as a base before trying to spray the White color coat. Most White paints regardless of manufactures have a hard time covering dark colors. Maybe even use a light coat of their Gray Primer then the White Primer and then the color coat. I would try it with a spoon or a discarded parts tree before trying it on the already painted body.

I'm sure having 12 wires to deal with really added to the fun!

Use this stuff... It works awesome. Will not hurt the plastic if you follow the instructions. You have to soak it for 10 min , then scrub it lighty with an old toothbrush. Then wash and let dry. I wash mine with Dawn dish soap. I have used it on month old cured paint. Came right off

Hi Gabor, Studio27 have a decal sheet that contains the white stripe so if your budget allows and you haven't stripped the body already you should check it out. I have three of these Jags on the bench at the moment and it seems top be a fairly good kit. The seat belts are very fiddly and take a bit of patience but the rest goes together easily.

I tried today the white color.:

It's cover well the green color,but i used a spray, so the edges are bad. I'll try tomorrow with airbrush

If the result isn't good enough, i will buy the decal set, what ShawnS recommended me. Thanks for the tip
