Sauber Mercedes C9

Recommended Posts

So I finally got around to taking some pics of a couple more of my builds. This is a Tamiya 1/24 kit + Studio 27 photo etch. It went together pretty well apart from the engine cover which still wont quite sit flush and I found the photo etch a little disappointing. I painted it in Mercedes Brilliant Silver and covered that with acrylic clear, both out of a can from a national auto parts chain. It was given a light flatting with 4000 grit and polished up. I had big plans for plumbing and wiring the motor but I bottled it at the last minute. This is the second kit I completed so its all still a bit of a learning curve and I'm reasonably happy with it.

Any comments, criticisms or advice gratefully received.

Thanks for looking

Nice, clean work. I'd say you're far enough around the (learning) curve to start accelerating.

I don't see much to criticize here. You did a beautiful job as far as I can see.

Your painting of the door opening / panel line is a detail that makes a huge difference. I'm always conflicted on when a panel line should be painted, but it's perfect here.
