Hey that looks great,
Even has the same fuzzy number plate as the full size one :laugh:
But seriously it's great and always appreciated by the receiver, I have done a few for friends and myself. Even though the real cars are gone now the models are always still on the shelf.
Great job on the paint mix too, I have a lot of modeling friends that are so reluctant to try this, if they can't get the right color out of a tin it just simply can't be done sort of thing. I was taught many years ago about how color and gloss both need to adjust for scale, and that looks fairly spot on to me. :y:

These pictures have been in my camera for a long, long time ... This is redoing the pinstripes on the 1957 Morris Minor belong to my Dad...

The old stripes were done quite badly & had worn almost completely off in places, I cleaned them off with rubbing compound & IPA.

Recipe for the new lines was 10:1 X7 Red & X9 Brown.

I did have a couple of fails where paint got under the masking & needed a bit of a tickle...

Before:






After:






Not pictured is the masking up with J tape & brown paper & sealing with clear ... or where I had to do some repairs where the cat tried to jump through a closed window & scraped its claws over the paint :whistle:

More photos fromthe bowels of my camera, this time using TRG Super Color Vinyl & Leather Dye (plus their cleaner) to colour the piping on the seats on my dad's 1938 Austin 7 Ruby (now sold):
