2015 McLaren 570S

Here’s my McLaren 570S from Revell Germany. This kit was more of a challenge than I expected with tons of tiny parts and decals. The fit was pretty good but final assembly was very finicky to get it all to line up correctly. As I read from other builders here, the carbon fiber decals did not want to cooperate so I left them off after the roof decal tore. Also, my kit was missing a headlight lense despite it being a new, sealed kit so I left the other off. RofG is sending me a free replacement part but it will take weeks; I’ll add them on when I get it. Body is the bare molded-in-color plastic with two coats of Future, with Tamiya XF-56 metallic gray as the accent and wheel color. Brake calipers and valve covers are X-12 gold leaf. Interior is flat black Krylon with the bare gray plastic for the seats. Despite the challenges it was a fun build and I’m happy with my results!

I primed this kit and put it off after dry test fit. The front wing is a pain to attach properly. I am thinking about scratch building or printing a replacement. Other than that the kit looks nice.

Very well done for a kit that is extremely difficult to build  I have a built "clone" of your build and I have the passenger door in the open position too.  Mine has a mostly black interior with orange trim and I added a wing to the rear deck   Great job.
