    Very nice! The colours look very authentic, especially that matt Ferrari red, is that Zero paint?

      They are all factory Policar factory paint except the HAAS and the Renault. Both were stripped and repainted with Tamiya rattle can.

    JRobe, Curious firstly about the method you used to strip the factory paint ready for repainting, as I have a white than needs to become a yellow car. Would be most grateful for your advice.

    Also, what paint colour and what decals did you use for that gorgeous Tyrell? (I may just need to strip 2 cars.

      I used isopropyl alcohol to strip the factory paint. I soak the body in it, usually over night. Then us an old toothbrush to scrub it off. After that I wash the parts off with dawn dish detergent, rinse it well in warm water and leave it to air dry.

      Note: all of theses bodies are black plastic.

      when it’s dry I give the parts a coat of Tamiya light gray fine primer. Depending on your yellow paint you my want a second light coat of Tamiya white primer.

      I did have a issue trying to put paint over the Policar white paint. Even after washing the body in dawn detergent an Tamiya paint fished eyed and did not apply smoothly.

      The Tyrrell is the Policar blue kit, I applied some 1/20 scale F1 Decals, I used the smaller ones from the set. They were Studio 27 trans kit decals.

              Awesome job! On all of them. What orange did you use for the McLaren?

          • #10
            I used Tamiya TS56 brilliant orange and gave it a top coat of Tamiya pearl clear.
