Default Tamiya BMW M3 GT 2009 TT-01E build

Hi, Attached photos of my latest build. I only used some of the decals that
came with the kit as I wanted the Rahal Letterman ALMS livery. Hope you
like it. Regards

First one I've seen, nice work, thanks for sharing. I noticed that Tamiya didn't get the NEC font correct which is a shame.

This is what the font is supposed to look like.

Anyway I'm gonna be getting the bodyset to mount on one of my cars. Also it doesn't look like the body comes with light buckets?

Hi, Thanks. The Graphics on the car are not by Tamiya. Only used a few of
the ones that came with the body set. The sponsor decals were made by
a friend that has limited fonts on his computer so he could not match the
NEC font. Well, they were free so I couldn't say anything. Will try and see
if I can correct. Regards

Ah..ok that makes sense. Tamiya usually gets the livery perfect.

Hi, PaPeRo, Just checked with the guy that makes the graphics for me and
he used the nearest font on NEC that the real car has. It is not the NEC
logo which you sent me. Attached photo. I think I will leave as is, but thanks
for pointing it out. Next an Aston Martin DBR9 from Le Mans. Regards
Norman2
PS. I wish I could have gotten the full side graphics but they are too complicated with the overlaps.

Tell your friend to download this high resolution logo, scale it down to the correct size and print it on his vinyl sticker machine. I'll glady buy some stickers from him too.

Here is a walk around of the real car.
