I finished my new body today . It looks good from a few metres back, but up close you can see the imperfections !

Oh well... what can you expect when you're using masking tape and 4 different colours of paint. I wanted to use Liquid Mask but I couldn't get none !

I left the spoiler clear and just put stickers on it... I like that touch.

Here's the pics... don't be too harsh !

But stand a few metres back and it's good !

You should have brought tamiya masking tape, you can get it in 3 different widths.... did you make that design with tape.

I like it

same thing with me when i masked using masking tape, i found that if i got a strip and trimmed one side it gives a cleaner line and just rub a plastic ruler along it to make sure its got a firm stick.

But great job anyway! better than what i could do.

Thank you all for the compliments !

Sausage, I did use Tamiya masking tape in the widest width.

I'm NOT doing my next body without liquid mask, it'll make it so much easier it's not funny.... took me about 2 hours in total to mask out that body !

I still think my painting can improve though and I won't be happy until I do !

From the info ive received it will only be slightly different to the Fw04 so I should not have really called it a prototype,it is but it is probably going to be more of a facelift than a model reconstruction.

From all accounts this is the car that photos we have all seen are of......it is NOT a v-one anything!!!!!
