Thank you Jesper, that Chrysler looks nice.

A few items arrived yesterday and today.
The Battlefield 1 and IWC watch decals are for the Tamiya AMG GT3 however they come without instructions! There’s also a decal set for the AMG GT3 Black Falcon Racing (blue car) and the Senna set for the Ducati 1199S.
The Japanese cartoon girl box is the Fujimi AMG SLS GT3 with Good Smile Racing team decals.

What do these look like inside the box? I've always wondered. Have time to post a few sprue shots?

Luciano, you hit the jackpot, my friend! Both superb models!
Do you care to share some build blogs? The one from Tamiya i'll love to see it.

Cheers!
Gabriel



Thank you Gabriel. I’ve just found and ordered the “Battlefront 1” decal set directly from the manufacturer also found and ordered another decal set at the same time, I’m going to need another AMG GT3

As for a build log well at the moment I’d just be happy to finish something. I do need to build an ‘M’ subject for a show in November so it could be a Merc and I’ll get to try those Zero paints.

Well it’s my birthday today and here is what I brought myself, it arrived the other day but I waited until today when I finished work to open it. Yes working on my birthday and it’s a Sunday as well.

Zero colour matched paints including 2 part candy orange for the AMG GT3 just waiting for the decal sheet to come back in stock, pe for a Tamiya Mercedes CLK GTR and a set of decals for the Fujimi SLS AMG GT3.

Haha!

Michael, you'll make a great detective!

I sourced the "car" colors locally:



Those are really crazy colors, even the manufacturer couldn't found a name for them. It looks like they were nominated by an online random word picker. The dark blue is after school bay blazer, the dark red is wicked and the dark green is stylenomics (sic!)

But my favorite is the beige for not to be Christine: so many clowins... so little time Go figure!

Very nice Gabriel!
Though I don't see too many "car" colours in that paint collection, unless you're going for a camo effect

cheers

Hi, guys!

I have noticed that my stash lacking seriously civilian vehicles and the weight of today's shipment went to Tamiya and to 1/24 scale.

The much needed Porsche 959 for the Porsche campaign.


I like the simple yet liquid shapes of this Mazda Eunos Roadster. I bought it as "sparing partner" for testng clear coats


I was salivating for this kit since its release, some three years ago. I decided I cannot wait any longer Mercedes Benz 300 SL


White finishes are haunting me and I bought another "test subject". No, it's not going to be Christine


Together with those, a bunch of preparation / finishing products:


Cheers!
Gabriel

Gabriel: Yeah, I think it's pretty cool. Not quite sure, what to do with it yet. I Won't be painting it movie style, that's for sure.

And it's an old level 4 from Revell! Jesper, you have a flair of your own when picking kits. I think I need an acquisitions manager as good as you LOL! Nice Torino.
Cheers!

Well, just needed a little paint, but buying a little paint on-line is impossible. Receiving a little package with 3 small bottles of paint, is a no go, so I had to order a kit as well
