Thanks for the tip on your window solution by using printer foil.... I will give it a try, cause I run into that problem all the time.

Thanks also for sharing your amazing builts !!

Can you polish the spots off? I think the car would look quite sinister in dark grey or black.
No, this can't be polished, the metal sheet is really hard. It's much easier to make the parts again with the next turn, but you see, you have to check the coated sheets very carefully before using them... :roll: And I think I'll really paint the car in a medium silver tone, dark or black cars always disappear in my showcase... :)

I'm experimenting with two different types of foil, coated and uncoated, if you want to I'll let you know which one is recommendable. And I'm always happy to receive your comments on S1/43. Being a nerd and sitting the whole day in the dungeon, it's a relief to share my work here :D

Yes please let me know.. I did not have the time as yet to experiment. My own project is still in the "rough" fase.

Model building is always an experience in patience - leave your time, and today I've ordered another type of foil, so I'll let you know soon which one I'd prefer.

Meanwhile a third turn of priming & sanding was made, with a nice result:

This is the first layer of medium gray lacquer as basis for the silver coating:

The interior should get a medium blue, but I guess I will re-do this in another shade:

Image

The seats got a darker steel blue:

The blue will look great with the silver bodywork. Coming along nicely!

Coming along nicely. Looking forward to seeing it with the top coat. Silver can be difficult....you don't want it to be too shiny, but you also don't want it to be too dull.

And I've decided to keep the light blue interior. Indeed you will hardly see anything in the closed car, so it's fine for me :)

Well, I hope so. I guess the car's impact comes from the shape, so a "neutral" silver works well with the car.

Therefore I work with AlClad metallic shades for the standard tones like silver, steel etc. They are applied on the glossy base paint, and so the car looks shiny, but due to the AlClad top coat it's just a little bit "satinized". When examining vintage photos of metallic-painted cars, I think that they didn't apply clear top coats in those days.

Today the works proceeded, so the dashboard was made:

...as well as the passenger shell with all details:

And the body received a second layer of paint and is already smoothened with 3200 MicroMesh (next steps up to 12000 will follow):

The interior looks great and the body is really smooth already. Great work!
