I got a new toy for father's day, an Aldi airbrush kit, so I decided it was time to do my first livery re-paint. It's a Jaguar XKR GT from the first Scalextric Digital kit I bought a number of years ago: Stripped the old livery by soaking in methylated spirits. Primed with Humbrol acrylic pressure packed primer and ready for paint.
Setting up 3 of these for the kids & friends of kids. Grabbed an orange & blue pair cheap but a white one was elusive so when another orange one turned up a simple repaint did the trick. It was missing it's rear wing unfortunately. In terms of tune I followed pretty much what slotmadmac did to his VW cup cars recently - a chunk of lead down low, trued and glued tyres - I had slotits on hand and a ninco guide swap. I wanted to keep lights ( for the kids but they were a snug fit so simply lowered them on their posts to allow for body rock. And the interior tray got a good seeing to with the dremel as well for clearance. Handles well now so deslots should be minimal. 1 down 2 to go
