Prior Mercedes AMG GT


Recommended Posts

The base kit of this model is the Revell Mercedes AMG GT. I also used parts from the Hobby Design update kit and the Prior Design transkit from C1 Models. Carbon fiber decals are from Tamiya. The paint is AMG Brilliant Blue from Zero Paints. Clearcoat is Tamiya lacquer. Shoulder harnesses are silk ribbon with Studio27 hardware. Wheels & tires are resin parts from DiOlex Productions painted with Alclad aluminum.

The Revell kit is pretty good. Surprised at the amount of flash, though. Some of the glass (windows & lights) doesn't quite fit right. The C1 transkit has issues, too. The fenders should be flush to the bodywork at the edges and the hood is too thick to close all the way (something I did not notice untill too late). I didn't use all the tiny aero parts from the transkit kit. And I didn't lay the paint down as well as I liked, but its a good shelf model.
