Alpha Model BMW M4

Hello, it has been a very long while since I posted any project here. I'm returning working on my first Alpha Model, a BMW M4. It arrived with the pillars crushed, but, nothing that could not be easily repaired, as I did. After I did the repair, I just airbrushed the sections where it was fixed and since this model is so perfectly casted that I didn't used any primer et all.

For the color I have in mind I started with Finisher's gloss white, Finisher's Foundation Blue and ending with Finisher's Chrome Silver. In order to get the color I wanted, I custom mixed Modo Phantom Green and Clear Sky Blue.

At the end you can see the results...

I received another BMW M4 body from Alpha Model,but, like the first time, it arrived with the roof crushed. The good news is thta is was much easier to fix tan the Firth time and in less than 10 minutes I had this one ready for primer.  I even tried out the interior cabin I already built just to check fix.

This time I opened the panel lines, did the panel lines on the roof to be guides for the carbón fiber paper airbrushed some Finisher's foundation white, Finisher's foundation blue, and Finisher's Chrome silver. Added Scale Motorsport carbon fiber on the roof and finally airbrushed Gaianotes EX-03 clear.

When I was airbrushing the clear, I forgot to throw light coats of clear firt, as always, and you guys can se the result in the firts picture, a total mess. After I polished the whole model, I reworkes the roof of the model working with a new carbon paper decal and airbrushed clear again, but Just in this section this time.

At the end I think everything turned out ver well..

That gloss looks stunning. The blue looks like a perfect match to an OE BMW colour. I believe it’s called Snapper Rocks Blue. 
The interior looks great too. This will be one nice M4.
