This was a build I will remember for long.I bought the car allreday (perfect painted and decalled) from the well know Koenc and he really did a perfect job.I thought that 2 evenings would be enough to paint the pilot and all the little parts but like always my obscession to go to the edge about details brought me in some other reallity.I tested 3 colours for the rims and finally the TS 30 (silver leaf) did it.The helmet was painted with TS 35 park green and this colour is really deliciousy vintage.I try 2 colours for the interior (hull red and sand).The hull red looks more vintage but contrast from light sand and black was too beautifull so it won.Detailling a 1/12 pilot is really a challenge,It tooks about 5 hours to finisch this little job.The dash bord is 2 colours like the box art (first one on T.C.)To be honest builing this car is very exiting of course but is very stressfull.I never touched the body with my hands,only with my chirugical cloves.The contrast about the shapes with the porsche are great.Two different schools ,same result,beauty.

Central I don't know my friend as I like almost every one of my cars the same but I have to admit you can have the half of the glory for this car.The advantage when you paint in proffesional cabin with 2 compounent real car is that the paint is very resitant.Every spot or micro scratch can easylie be removed with simonize.Even if I have my own 'little' paint cabine at home I never will get the same result.Thanks again Koen for this very rare opportunity to get a brand new countach complete with box and manual.The other 8 will follow soon ,cheers and enjoy the build of your new Rothmans.
P.S. do you know where I can find an ascona NIB.
