Great conversion Hein. I also spotted the Jordan 192 in the background of one of your shots and I'd like to see your conversion of that car too.
Keep up the good work. BTW where did you order the day glow red paint again.

Hi! Here you can find the topic of my Jordan192 conversion.

I ordered RAL3024 luminous red at a local online automotive paint shop that sells every RAL color in a spraycan

Lovely job of the MP4/9. I completed this conversion a few years ago (it's on here somewhere) but you've made a much better job of it than I ever did. Congratulations! Looks perfect.

a quick update. Painted the black/carbon areas on the tub and wings with semi gloss black with a very light mistcoat of silver to give it a carbon "shine".
And started with the final essembly. End in sight :D
