Ok @jonboy1, you got me. I cannot lie. I did spend most of an evening playing around with different settings on a new phone, staging stuff in the lounge with LED’s, editing on the PC etc to get ‘that’ shot because it was raining.

But then this morning I just parked it in the sun and pressed the button and 💥 😃

I like what you've done with the little rear window there @Ferruz

And what tyres are those?

Agreed with @GeeWings, that Talbot Sunbeam is just so sweeeeeet @jonboy1!! and with the correct rims... stunning :wub:

Thank you @BuggyDad, I am actually very proud of my little rear window addition to the Mid, it came after a lot of pondering so I'm glad you appreciate it :lol:

Tires are a repro of the Bridgestone originals by Marwan RC, and they are excellent. They've been a life saver since to me they are part of the Mid's DNA and I just couldn't feel her identity fully coming to life without them. I ordered them the same day I bought the kit 😅 

...that being said, I just pulled the trigger on some on road kicks for the Postal Racing. Like you suggested a while ago, these are a bit too nice to shred out instantly on tarmac, and will be preserved for the shelf and for some snow/offroad running.

Only just saw your rear window @Ferruz because my work laptop blocks most image servers. Anyway, great idea and well executed. Very nice.

Very nice all of those. Could you tell me what those yellow wheels are? Have you dyed some white ones? I am hoping to achieve a similar look, albeit slightly darker shade yellow. I have some JC Racing Fox ones to dye but I'm not sure whether it'll work. 

Sorry for slow reply.   The yellow wheels were from a grasshopper 2 super G.  I think the gold nova fox wheels would be the way forward. Green and gold is a good combination 👍😊

Lovely! It’s such a great looking model with just the right amount of detail. I need to get around to restoring mine at some stage. Did you get any closer to printable tyres for this model?

I have the model for the tires already, but I need to fine tune something for the printing in the proper resin... This was postponed, like the Hunter tires for priorities purpose. I'll get back to this but I don't know yet

@Busdriver this looks lovely. What paint is the blue? 

PS4 Blue backed with PS16 as I ran out of 4 followed by black. White is Core RC white Knight also backed with black and the whole thing backed with PS12. Few little hiccups that don’t show in these pictures but it’s a runner.

Thanks!  The color I have to give credit to @matisse for sharing his metallic burgundy recipe.  :D    I too love this color as I've seen 1:1 in person in this color and it is absolutely beautiful.   I am expecting alloy wheels to arrive soon, so will do another take down the road.

Thanks again @GeeWings, @matisse!!

I seriously am beyond baffled as to how you all make such realistic, beautiful bodies. Not only that, but also staged in a perfectly lit environment.

I currently have two shells needing painting (one being Ford Bronco CC-02 shell, other an old Traxxas I need to scrape the paint off and repaint).

 

I’m absolutely flabbergasted, as only the simplest combinations have worked well; upon mixing three colors, I got my infamous TL-01 Stadium Raider… soup.
