C5 Monoposto / Speedster

Recommended Posts

Missing parts/donor kit; a little kit-bashing and a little scratch-building and a few custom decals.

The interior, suspension and drivetrain were used elsewhere.  The wheels and tires are from a Tamiya Enzo.  Brakes and seats are from other Tamiya kits.  Tail pipes, gas filler and rear-view mirror are machined from aluminum.  Tamiya paints including the new LP colors were used.

Looks great!

How do you like the new LP paints, where did you source them?

Zora would be pleased. He might wish it were a mid engine but at heart he was a racer .

Thanks guys.

I really like the LP colors.  I was lucky to get a full set of the first colors released directly through Tamiya.

At the risk of abusing a pun, does the phrase "top notch" apply here?  : )  Love the way you salvaged this kit by incorporating elements from other kits and adding your usual touches (machined pieces, styrene surgery and perfect paint).  

Glad to see the new paints worked well for you.  Having them available in decanted form will make it easier for me too.
