May 11 - Decals are done for main body of MP4/30

Over past weekend and this week, I have completed decals on main body of MP4/30 model. Started with stripes, which were more difficult.
However with quite a bit of Micro-set I got them in place and then using Micro-Sol I've got them to conform to curves. I like quality of decals
Ebbro provided. Alcohol company decals are aftermarket. Next went on logos, which were easier and they went over more flat surfaces. There
is not that many decals over all on this car. I like end result quite a bit. I think this car really looks cool. Pity it didn't perform very well. Few
decals for wings remain to be added. Hopefully will finish them over the weekend. I wish Ebbro included more CF decals on their decals set.

Great work!

That is very nice. From the various build reports i've seen it looks like a very nice kit. Pity i don't really care about the car :-)

Excellent work my friend!
So, it's only my opinion but, I think that right color is a little more dark.
In these photos the Kamimura's model built, with TS-40 metallic black. What do you think?
Good job,
best regards
David

The actual car is grey on the car, similar to the 97-2005 West cars, which appeared black but were more of a dark grey.
