No polishing just yet. That'll happen over the next couple of sessions then I'll leave it all to cure for a week before masking and airbrushing the yellow dividing stripe. Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment. More later this week or more likely beginning of next week.

Ian, do you really think you needed to polish it? The red looks pretty good as is. What kind of paint are you using?

Thanks Mark, 

The Orange is Tamiya straight from the rattle-can and dried with such a high gloss it was/is perfect, but the white dried to a satin finish,  the (mixed) yellow dried on the matt side of satin aswell, so I'll need to clear & polish to get the whole' car to the same level of 'sheen'.

Over the last couple of sessions I've added the car-specific decals from the WW sheet so tomorrow I'll put all the contingencies on as well as the tire markings. Then I'll leave it alone until early next week to dry-off thoroughly before spraying the clear coats. Thanks folks for taking the time to look and/or comment.

Looks awesome. Now put some tires on that baby. Totally understand about the white and orange dulling on you and having to go ahead and polish the red as well, That's one of the reasons I don't use Tamiya anymore. If I'm going to have to polish anyway I just use model master acryl with my airbrush and save some money. Also I found that when I masked Tamiya and removed the tape it left an imprint of the tape on the Tamiya paint. It doesn't do that with acryl.
