Mclaren MP4-25 Jenson Button

Here are some more pics of my Mclaren MP4-25. This is the new revell kit and it goes together great, just a bit difficult getting the body to mate with the chassis. This one took a long time because of all the decals, they can definately be frustrating! I added some aftermarket carbon fiber to the areas that are not included on the kit decal sheet, but other than that it is right from the box. Enjoy!

Very nicely done Josh!

These ROG 1/24 kits can be a bit fiddly, but usually represent the 1:1 well, as yours does.

And WELCOME to the forum BTW! B)

F1 returns to the states this weekend!!!

What silver did you use? I've always wanted to tackle this kit but worried about doing the silver then damaging that finish when I got to the decal step. Yours looks darn good.

Thanks guys. I thought about the paint for a while, and even though it is nowhere near the correct Mclaren color, it is as close as I could get it. I just sprayed testor's chrome silver over a gloss black base coat, then followed it up with a few coats of clear. After the decals were on, I added a few more coats of clear so I could polish it out. The color looked better before since the clear made it more of a "silver" than a "chrome", but I knew with all of the handling necessary for the decals that the silver would have to be protected. Hope this answers your questions.

I have also heard of people covering the entire car in Bare Metal Foil, but I am nowhere near good enough with that stuff to attempt that.
