Hi. I'm building this BMW M3 DTM and using some aftermarket bits to reflect the Agusto Farfus car and livery. The paint is Tamiya Cobalt Green which, after primer, went on so easily. Really a pleasure to work with. 

Here is my question to this group. I can find exterior shots of the DTM BMW i'm building, but I can't find ANY references for the engine and engine bay. Anyone have any ideas on that? Thanks and I'll post more pictures as I get further into it.

Wow. Excellent. Thanks for that. I can probably incorporate that reference into the build. Appreciate it.

Working my way through this. I'm using carbon fiber decals from Racing 43. Just about done with the chassis and cockpit. BTW, this kit is VERY well engineered. Considering all the separate pieces that make up the body, they fit real well together. I have been test fitting as I go.

Cool build, nice paint. 

Glad to hear body panels anf fitment good. I've got this kit, and was concerned about that. Good work.

I nearly bought this kit for a tenner from hobbycraft,but the flash was awful... And the decals looked painful. But yours is making me wish I'd taken a punt. Looking good!
