  • Scale Car Garage - 356 Colour Tests

    I thought that I would do some colour tests for the 356 Speedster body kit:

        I like the flat baby blue one also. Maybe its the age of the car and the era it is from, but bright colors don't seem to fit with fourty and fifties era cars. I think this car would also look great in a light flat green or light flat yellow. My 2 cents.

          Fantastic!

          I will give the green a try!

          I was playing with the idea of trying brown, any thoughts?

          Thanks so much!

              I like the light blue out of the colors shown, but would like to suggest a light teal and a bright metallic silver as other possibilities?

                  I agree that a lighter color brings out the shape of the car. The others seen too β€œnoisy” to see the body lines and detail.

                        I would say the yellow or blue . But since you have a few bodies why not one of each ?

                          I agree with this - we went with a softer yellow on our replica:

                            Thats what I said: "Elfenbein" = Ivory, and of course German Racing colors "Silbermetall" = Metallic Silver. But yes the Ivory just gives it an extra vintage feel I think.

                            Very nice replica!

                            I like how you kept it stock appearing - probably a very fun and satisfying car to run and own.

                              Thanks for the nice comments Vintage 1/24 - much appreciated. My wife and I had it built four years ago as a way to celebrate helping get our grandson through his 1 and 1/2 year treatment for neuroblastoma. He was diagnosed at 6 months, and his brutal cancer regime included several surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, a bone marrow transplant, and immunotherapy.

                              My daughter was in school, and her husband just started his first call as a pastor in Illinois. My wife and I moved out there to help, and spent the bulk of our time at St Louis Children's Hospital with our grandson. One of the best days of my life was when we were all able to take him back home. Due to the great care he received, he's a happy, heathy 5 year old today. One of the best things about the car is it's become a symbol for our grandson's triumph over cancer! ( my apologies to Kitman for the massive thread drift here!)
