senninha,
Your work is awesome.
Can you share your technique for the orange on the undertray? It is so realistic looking. Do you know if the orange a carbon compound or something else?

Thanks
Mark

Good morning, thx again for your very kind comments, its always a source of motivation.
And sure its no problem to share the technique.
1st: priming the undertray with white and grey primer, spray also a bit of black in some areas
2nd: decaling the undertray with scale motorsports carbon fibre in amber or kevlars in yellow
3rd: clear coating with 2k
4th: waiting :)
5th: use a 600 grid sandpaper and make some scratches, you will see the white and grey primer.
6th: spray some clear blue and clear red on several scratches.. sanding again and repeat the procedure
7th: use some other colors (i used amber, black, ceramic grey from zeros) especially over the bright (primed) areas
8th: clearcoating again, but only a light shine like semi matte coat
8th: make some very soft scratches and the semi matte coat disappear and the shiny clear coat appear

Repeat the steps 5 to 8 untill you r satisfied with the result

The last step is taking a small brush and adding fine hairlines with thin black color

Sounds complicated, but its fun

Good afternoon from Germany, thank you again for your kind replies. Achieved some progress during the last night. I was able to add some little details like cables and some rivets. Also i want to show you my first totally brushed carbon work on the side pods, therefor I used the MFH decal templates (don't know what their name is :D ) and some cellulose.

@jaykay: It was horrible to glue the engine to the monocoque, MFHs plan doesn't work right. I worked almost 4 hours to bring the both parts together.

here are the pics.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep it in mind when i come to mine :-)
Yours is looking very good anyway!
Are the v-stacks really slightly pink or is that a colour temperature effect from the digicam?
