Welcome!  Looks like you've done a fantastic job on this build.  

Really like your paint work.  Would you mind elaborating on "polyester paints"?  (Links etc)  I'm always looking for new sources, and I'd never heard of these.

Welcome Marco.  Take this as a compliment - at first I thought it was an expensive diecast.  Superb paint and detail on the multi-color livery and the decals.

Thank you, Monty!

Polyester paint is what we call basecoat car paints here in Brazil.  

They work in conjuction with a clear coat afterwards.

The base coat dries to a matt finish and has no mechanical resistance. The 2k clear coat can be wet sanded and polished.

In this link they refer it as a BC/CC system.

For airbrushing, the paint needs heavy thinning and a spray booth.

I'm not sure, but I think Zero Paints use these paints.

Beautiful looking finish and all of the sponsors decals must have been fun to do.  

Fun and lots of work. The decal sheet has 138 decals of which 90 to 100 are used.
