Beautiful work on this one! I have always love this car. When they came out I spent many hours looking them over at the dealership. I have one to build but never thought of building it in this color scheme. What brand and color of red did you use for the interior? I love it.

Later-

Thank you! It is a mix of XF-8 and XF-7, just a few drops of blue though.

Another job done impeccably well. Did you use a wash for the body panel lines? They look perfect - not too dark for a white body. How did you do that?

Much appreciated! Yes, I did use wash for panel lines. Its a Tamiya Smoke, which is translucent grey color, and perfect for this kind of work.

Making me want to buy another kit!

Did his one years ago as my first go with spray cans (before I got an airbrush).

Yours pops.

Perfection as usual.  I'd love to watch you build a car just to understand some of your techniques better.  Do you do anything special to the glass to make it look so clear?
