Tamiya Evo 6.5 Tommi Makinen Edition

Recommended Posts

Well I finally finished this one up. Despite all the troubles I had with Zero Paints and some fitment issues with the resin parts I’m pretty satisfied with it. 
 

 It is a Mitsubishi Evo 6.5 Tommi Makinen Edition. The kit is a 1:24 scale Tamiya Evo 6 with Hobby Design Tommi Makinen detail-up set. 

 

The body is primed with Tamiya White Primer, painted with Tamiya TS-8 Italian Red- shot through the airbrush- then cleared with Zero Paints 2k Diamond Clear, and also has a Hobby Design Muffler.

That came out great. Nice paint job I like the decal.

Thank you very much.  This is my first “big” decal job. I’ve never done one the length of the car then shot clear over it. My nerves were kind of shot afterwards ?

That's a nice Evo you built. I think the red really pops. 

Thank you very much. I was afraid the Tamiya Italian Red wouldn't look good and be too dark.  I was really bummed that the Zero Paints color didn't work out.

The subject is not my cup of tea, but the skills are undeniable, no matter the theme of the model. 

Great job on the paint, looks very sharp and clean. Impressive undercarriage. Not overdone and simply fantastic.

Thank you very much. This one tested my patience in certain areas, and it’s also my first time doing decals this large as well as the slight chassis weathering

Very nice indeed. Is the camber in the rear wheels part of the kit design?

No I decided to give it a little camber on the rear since those cars are setup from the factory with some for handling. They didn’t look right sitting straight up and down
