Another great kit from Revell in their "599" series:

Tamiya Mica Red over Metallic Gold ("Iron Man" armour colour scheme...). I really like the sheen on this -- I think it's much more realistic than 2K clearcoat, in scale...
Highly recommended!

And a few with its stablemates:

The "Scuderia" shot. Just the Cali to build, and an FF to source from someone, and I'll be able to replicate the Ferrari "atelier"...

Unbelievably beautiful I wish you would also show us larger scale classics to rival the late Martin Swire.

Thanks, guys! Skip... thanks for the compliment, but I don't think I'm in that league! If I find a 1/16th that I can afford and like the subject of (Alfa 33, Countach, 300SL) I'd like to try a bigger scale build, but I don't have the display space for all the models that are in the stash now, much less embarking on a new "Big Boyz" addiction. All bets are off if I find an affordable 1/8 E-Type, though...

I think you need a sunny day to fully appreciate the "electric red"...

Another fine, super clean build, Matt! Well done mate! I have all these kits & have yet to build 1! :-(

But thanks to you I have something to look forward to.

Cheers Cliff
