Another one 30 years in the making. The decals were a pain. The age combined with user error made the decal process take way too long. I had to create a few of my own along the way too. Body is Tamiya Pure White. Since most stores were shut down, my choices for Brown were pretty limited. I used Krylon Short Cuts Espresso (bottle). It was fairly close. If I had to do it over, I probably would have just cut the brown decal portions out and resprayed them so everything matched. Chassis color is Krylon Pewter Gray.

Another nice build of a car that don't get built enough. Looks great to my eyes. How are you doing tire letters? Decal or stencil?

For the tires I remove the raised letters, Testors Glosscote, decal, Testors Dullcote, and then finish with Tamiya Soot weathering to dirty up the lettering.
