Anyone tried to buy anything from Raceway RC lately? Seems impossible to buy any stickers from him. Asked to see if he have any special livery, or willing to make any, he said no plans and wont make any new ones till the 2024 cars are announced. Fair enough. How about your existing designs then? Wont ship internationally until website is up. O...KAY...Fine, how about shipping to an American address then? Sorry I'm "burnt out".

Just wait till he gets he's new stuff up. I have the Mclaren set I never used. RC Decals in UK won't make the new ones till after March or April- but you can go to his site and see what he has. I've uses both and they are both excellent!

Did the best i could, helmet is a simplified Lando themed with yellow and black. Dont really want to run the car with this wing since paint doesnt seem it wants to stick to the plastic. It flakes off so easily.

I love seeing an F1 chassis with a wider track width and bigger tires!

Do you have any way to strip or sand the paint off? If so, I'd suggest bring it back down to the plastic, re-prepping it, then spray again using a flex agent and adhesion promotor made for your paints and formulated for plastic. After it's cured for however long the manufacturer states, spray a coat of clear with a flex agent mixed in. This should make for a bulletproof paint job.

yeah I could easily strip it back to bare plastic and paint it again. Lemme look for these adhesion promotor for plastics. I tried using Tamiya PS paints for plastic but that was a fail. Then Proline's body paint and that also didnt work. I think for these hard plastics, regular modellers paint would work better
