Wanting a different finish I sourced an aftermarket set of Haribo decals. I also couldn't do any spray painting as the spray booth is not available, so left the body colour in standard grey as it comes in the kit. I have also added a few Monster and smoke camo decals!

That turned out great, Pat. Love the way the "bear" is coming up out of the front scoop!

How did you like the kit? I've just developed an interest in Formula cars, and am looking for any hands-on info I can get before jumping in with my wallet.

Thanks!

Mike

Super kit mrmike. plenty of detail, easy steering build which I normally mess up. Very good decal sheet in kit.

This was run by a satellite Mercedes team.
