Yellow Projects

Recommended Posts

I had some spare Tamiya cans of  Yellow  Paint and thought, what else could I use them on..... appears there are alot of good liveries around.

Not going for a authentic replica, just something unique that the other club guys won't have.

Only thing is, next time use White primer not grey, Yellow doesn't cover grey very well and needs a few extra coats - always learning....

Project 1: Sideways Grp 5 BMW M1

  • Sideways White kit
  • Patto Decals
  • Tamiya Yellow Chrome spray can paint

Blank canvas

Still need final clear coat over the Decals and some paint and trim highlights and a Chassis.

Project 3:  Slotit Nissan Skyline R32

  • Slotit White kit
  • Patto Decals - Pennzoil
  • Tamiya Yellow Chrome

Iconic paint scheme, hard to mistake for anything else.

Bit of fiddling with the decals was required as they were originally for the R34 Skyline which is wider and taller than the R32.

Pleased with the look, still got to do final clear coat and black the window frame trim.

These all look awesome.  I like how the black breaks up the yellow on the Skyline.


They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.

Project 2:  Sideways Group 5 Mustang

  • Sideways White Kit
  • Patto Decals - Pennzoil
  • Tamiya Yellow Chrome

Took a while to fit the decals. The Mustang doesn't have a lot of large flat surfaces to work with  ie had to squeeze the decals into the widest spots.

Still got to Clear coat and do some highlighting. Getting there.

What clear coat are you thinking of using?

Hi Terry

I regularly use Mr Hobby Gloss Topcoat B-501:500 now. This is a water based product but can be used over alot of different finishes like Enamel and Lacquer.

Drys fast, doesn't attack decals.

I use to use Model master Ultra Gloss but last few times it bubbled up on me which wreaked the finish - something to do with it atomizes very fast after leaving the nozzle, so I tried Mr Hobby and found it did the job for me.

They have a number of clear coat options eg Water base or Lacquer base.

Project 1: Sideways  Grp5 BMW M1 Completed

Finally finished! This kit had the least number of parts to assemble but boy were they fiddly, and the fitting was quite critical, so brute force didn't work!

Silver highlights are Bare Metal Foil, the black panels and window frames were hand painted Matt black.

I borrowed a chassis but likely will go for Black BBS wheel inserts to continue the black highlight theme.

Just noticed from the front, it sort of  looks like a Ferrari, not intentional but not a bad thing.

Project 3: Slotit Skyline R32 - Completed

Had alot more parts to fit but pretty straight forward once you did a test fit.

Again on a borrowed chassis, still building it's final chassis but will have fully Blacked out mags.

thanks for the "heads up" on the clear finish, I'll certainly give it a go.
