G'day All

I finally succumbed and bit the bullet on a NSR F1.

Me being me, it had to be done in Gulf colours. As a side note, Gulf have come on board as a sponser with the Mclaren F1 team.

Unfortunately, while applying the clear coat, the body slipped off it's stand and landed in a box full of dusty rubbish! Noooooo!! I picked the cobwebs and dirt off as best I could, but the remnants are still there to be seen. Oh well, so be it. I wasn't going to start again! Being a car I race, and especially being an open wheeler, I can't be too precious about the paint anyway...

Hopefully the view seen by my competitors...

Nice, I can’t actually recall a F1 car with a full Gulf livery. Maybe add some tyre marks and other weathering to the dirty area.

And why not i do lots of fantasy liveries and think it,s one way of increasing the interest of a generic car anyway, thinking of a Martini myself on top of the Merc i did a while ago.

You could try polishing it with a mild auto cutting compound - that may remove a fair bit of the dust and fluff. If the rag starts showing blue you have gone too far :)

Once you clear the dust off - hit it with clear again.
