finished her up last night, don't have much to talk about with it, mostly a box stock build... Tamiya pure white, Powerslide decals, home spun exhaust, fuel filler, and overflow tube... that's about it. not my best paint job, was done in a hurry between bouts of bad weather.














comments are appreciated and expected

Veeeery nice. It's the details that make a model "feel" like the real thing. The gold wheels with just enough but not too much pop, the exhaust and fuel overflow pipes, the metal like finish of the spoiler, the killer stance. You've nailed it!

Merci beaucoup, Pierre.

I try to put dullcote on gold wheels when i do them. I have found that Tamiya Gold isnít quite as flashy as Testors Gold enamel, i have them both and prefer the Tamiya + dullcote.

BEAUTIFUL! That is one nice LeMans build. The dual exhausts look great as well as the gold wheels and you flat nailed the stance. Love everything about this build 18degress. Nice way to honor Davey too. Very well done! Thanks for posting and keep'em comin'!

the lower grilles are decals; the upper ones and headlight buckets are painted with Tamiya AS 12 and given a light brushing with Tamiya black Panel Line Accent.
