I started this build many years ago, but didn't got any further than glueing the tranny to the engine. But since I bought this kit with my wife (in the very beginning of our relationship) in Luxembourg, I wanted to get it finished. I made a bold decission on the paint and went ahead. I kept it basically box-stock. I am missing a bit of motivation, so I am finishing older builds in the hope to regain my passion.

I did try for the very first time to tint the windows and have mixed feelings, in the beginning it looked good, but after I had the cab together, airbubbles started to show. I think it is because I didn't use any heat. But it did teach me some stuff.

I wouldn't worry about the window tint, because that's how they look in real life (especially the older style of tint), so in my eyes you've done a fantastic job overall B)

I agree with Helix that the air bubbles add to the realism. I also very much admire the color combination and the quality of the paint job.

What paint did you use?

Thanks guys!

I don't know, I do agree it does add to realism on some cars, but I'd rather have it a little bit better. But hey, I am just trying and for a first time, not that bad :)

@Johann, I used Zero Paints

one of the better renditions of this kit i've seen. tinting is a good idea, even if not 100%. it's a product that is lacking in scale models.

is it true that Pajero means "male organ" in spanish?
