Lovely work so far! How'd you get that finish on the frame?
Those pipes... Amazing.
Does the molotow ever harden up enough to safely touch, or do you clear coat it?
interested in the answer too, i love that molotow stuff but it always ends up all over my fingers, cos i'm too lazy to clearcoat everything, same goes for the mr hobby metals 🙁
i'm also slightly concerned about my decals now too :-/
Molotow does not take to clear coat, ten days to dry and then don't touch it unless your gloves are on an6 pressure will mark it, it's a beautiful finish but it's not friendly
Matt, I'm still awaiting the decals…………………
Rod the pipes are sprayed in thinned out orange,red,black CLEAR
This is my first FUJIMI KIT and they are not for the beginner, I've got another 5 fujimi kits to go but I love their detail( not their assembly)🙄
I'm scared to build mine now, you've set the bar to high!

Beautiful little racecar, you did an excellent job painting and detailing it, masterly !
Thanks Hanno still much to learn regarding clear Coates
Sweet! I really like those classic lotus f1 cars…
I did this one some time ago. The finish was spoiled because of the clear coate. In my opinion these cars dont need it. Just give a good polish on the paint and it`s enough. In my albums you can search for the Brabham bt18. No clear has been used. The Ebroo decals are excelent. I just polished the paint and at the end a coat of wax was given. Any way your Lotus it`s so beautifull isn`t it ?
Yes DENNIS/JORGE I love these cars they were just so simple and basic if something went wrong, you could literally see it.
Their simplicity is as Dennis would say "SWEET"🍰
Sweet paint job, love the color.
Thanks Mike SMS paint BRITISH RACING GREEN / MR SUPER CLEAR UV CUT

Hmmmm🤔some excellent information to exercise, many thanks Dennis and Jorge, greatly appreciated.
I have always put my tyres on the wheels before marking them so as not to distort the rubber and the paint .
Ah markers! Good hint Jorge 👍 you can actually use them for painting small parts. I've got me some mr. Hobby gundam markers for such purposes (basically the same stuff but pretty expensive though)
This particular kit comes without the GOODYEAR DECALS………so I can do a little more assembly of this kit whilst I await arrival of said decals ie postage
