Here's my first optima box art paintjob. Actually I finished the body several weeks ago but hadn't spare time to finish the tires markings... :-s
I guess all optimaniacs know that the optima box art is very difficult, because the color layers are multiple and the '5' is lacking in the official decal sheet, not to mention the stripe lines work, the driver (not a lot of documentation here)... All in all, I had a very long work on this one (several weeks); it's not perfect, the blue is a Tamiya one and is too dark and too reddish, the lines are a bit approximative, but I tried to mimmick the box art the best I could. Next time I'll use a Kyosho calsonic blue, which will be far closer to the official vintage colour scheme.
