BMW 320i 1977 DRM test car


Recommended Posts

Hi again guys,

Here's an old tamiya kit, a 1977 BMW 320i,this is actually a " failed project " because originally I was going to build this model as an old BMW race car which raced in 1977 DRM season with white color and BMW M-series red and blue stripes.

Unfortunately the decals did not react very well with the gloss clear, which meant that I had to strip the paint and do the bodywork all over again.

With no spare decal set cheap enough to be found online, I decided to build it to be some sort of test car, and incorporated some of the decals which I didn't use in my previous models,therefore I sprayed the body with flat black.

Although I think the result is not quite enough to overcome my disappointment, I'm gonna post it anyway,

Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

I share your frustration. My Fujimi Ford GT40 project had a similar fate with the decals. With all the time I have invested in the kit, I just can't bring myself to stripping the body. Kudos to you for trying something else. I agree with everyone that the results are fantastic.
