Basically it looks pretty good. What was the reason for the color change?
One hint: your rear license plate is missing the "TüV"-sticker (Department of Transport - technical check every two years)

I'm not sure with the rims. For me, they look to big.

@ Christian The pearl grey it's a Volkswagen colour used in some golfs, usually the colour of the gti are red, white and black, but I had problems with the X7 red from Tamiya, and I decided to change the colour to something different.
The license plate don't have excuse, it's from other kit, a corvette 07, see the numbers😅. And the rims I thinks that's it's better a 15", but I couldn't find.

Thak you for your words. What problem did you have? On the picture it looked pretty.

Now, that you pointed to the C7, I know, from where I know this license plate. Funny. This "fantasy-plates" of the producer always forces me, making my license plates by my own. I share the laughing smiley with you 😄 I often talk to my contact at Revell about this "hey, my plate shows something regarding to the car, nevertheless, it can be real"-license plates. There are a lot of mistakes, which can be found. E.G. Netherland plates starting with an "F" on Ferrari kits. Cool. F plates are only for tractors. Or the SA Aperta: F-SA you'd never get in Germany because of the SA / SS - thing. Never ever. But nevermind.

i painted the car in red, with tamiya X7, the result was good, but after paint the windows trims, the tape react in all body, so i decided to change the color. probably the paint need more time to cure.
thanks for the info for the license plates, i don't knowed that are not correct, next time i will check. in other models i made my own stickers (no decals) for my local licenses plates.

That's sad with the paint job. I think that is the most critical point, whether to start it over or stop and drop it into a spare parts box.
Good, you've started it all over. How did you get the color off?

i used brake fluid, dot 4, during 2 o 3 hours, works well, and no damage in the plastic
