Just a suggestion but take a look at Tamiya PS-17 Metallic Green. You might have to back it up with silver and black to top it off.

I don't see the problem. It provides just enough room for the twin .50 cal machineguns.

New generation F1 cars?
EWWWWWWWWWWWW
To narrow,always funny things on the body and always changing rules.
They should stick to a set of rules for at least 5 years and not change them every 2 years.
This is why the smaller teams can't keep up.
The changes cost a lot of money that the smaller teams don't have and if the rules don't change that much for a longer period they can understand what is going on keep up, even if it takes longer time.

regards Roy

Afraid it's forced by regulations. Basically it's to do with specing the nose to be a certain height (safety grounds), but not doing the same for the chassis bulkheads...which to get most airflow under the car to the floor, you want as high as possible. Combine that with cross-section sizes for the bulkheads, all add's up to the platypus noses.
Some do look better than others (Torro rosso for example), but only Macca went the full hog and lowered the whole nose... but they use a different front end concept to most with a snow shovel under the nose cone to ram air underneath.

Anyway... ready for TITC, vinyl wrapped the wings (might redo the rear one, not too happy with it atm)

The Red Bulls aren't too noticeable, thanks to the livery on the nose.
I'm curious if anyone had thought of endplates on the "bump".

problem there comes down to chassis radius rules that were introduced a couple of year back (I think '10) to stop the extreme "humps" that allowed teams to massively V the lower chassis, again improving airflow underneath... I believe there has to be a 25mm radius. Hence the smooth "bumps". Also, I think there's continuous bodywork, and general bodywork exclusion zones in those area's..

Not necessarilly...McLaren didn't go with the bill type nose like the others did.

So basically Mclaren are the only one thinking for themselves,right now. After the first race we will see who switches front nose ideas.

McLaren didn't go the high chassis route many others did to emulate the Red Bull design, so they where not affected by the rule change due to their lower chassis design.
(read Autosport)

My point being there are other options so it is not "forced"
