#50 IWC Watches Mercedes Benz AMG GT3

Recommended Posts

Finally wrapped up my first of the new-ish Tamiya AMG GT3 kits. The fit and ease these go together is amazing. I had a few issues, but most were my own fault. I've got one more in my stash and I will know  better what to do on it.

 

I used Gravity Mercedes silver, Omni clear. Then I  decaled it with Alps decals I drew and printed myself. Once the decals were dry I covered them with one thin coat of Omni, then polished out any imperfections. Finally I sprayed the whole body and wing with Testors Dull Cote to dull down the finish to match the 1:1 Benz.

I also did a little bit of carbon fiber decaling here and there. Overall a fantastic kit! They look so cool all built up. I will definitely build another.

Great work, especially on the decals. Do you own an ALPS printer or do you have access to one?
