Mclaren F1 - decal disaster


Recommended Posts

Well, this Aoshima kit was coming along so well. And then, decal disaster. They cracked, flaked and refused to conform to the surfaces. Looks like I'll have to paint the markings which will take a lot of masking and time. I tried to find a decal supplier, but no luck so far. Anyone know if there's a set out there for this EMI sponsored #40?

Looks fine to me

Hi Alex. What I didn't show before was that several body panels are white, and those were represented with decals. Which crumbled. But I ended up painting them and it all worked out ok.
