Marty, is that paint scheme a real car, or something you made up? I really don't recognize it. It looks really good, though.

You can see the line on the nose before the 3 where is transitions from silver to chrome, and then around the johnnie walker symbol where it transfers back, then as the cockpit begins it goes back to chrome again.

No big though, your's still looks great and I would love to have one

Marty, I think the McLaren looks great!!! How did you get the chrome finish on the front wing? I know the body must be chrome paint; but how did you do the front wing? Love it anyway!

According to the picture, that body is over 35 years old. Someone forgot to set the date on their camera.
