Beemax McLaren MP4/2B Question

Postby PJE » Tue May 21, 2019 4:51 pm

With the passing of Niki Lauda I’m thinking of moving up my build of his last win to the top of my list.
Has anyone tried to build the model using the fluor red decals? Are they at all worth giving a try?
Also, I have the detail set with the CF decals. Has anyone compared them to the Studio 27 CF for this kit?

Can't help you with your questions, Paul... but be sure to check Niki's well deserved #1 's size!!
I'll have a look at my GPI's t come up with some helping pic.
About CF, I reember when watching the cars at Donington (sigh... :roll: for some reasons!!) the CF pattern was hard to see at a foot distance. It was like a "sanded" look just in one direction.
Imagine you paint brown, then black, and then apply a uniform stroke of sanding to make the brown show up. That's it.

As I built that model before , I believe so , the Aoshima decal and CF decal from Detail set is really great , very friendly to work with and perfect match on all parts

In the FB someone used the red decals and looked very good. I have the 85 Monaco ver. With Beemax detail set in stock. The CF decals look very good in this set. Am also considering if I start to build.
