Airfix Jaguar XKR GT3 1/32.
Posted by PatW on Wednesday, November 9, 2022 4:27 PM

I bought this kit years ago. Having recently had problems with paint (+masking) or lack of it I found a spray can of gun-metal grey I popped this out of the box.

 

As I have no white matt or gloss at present, to get the white strip along the body I cut off the excess/margin of white decal paper having used it to print other decals.

 

I've also finished the interior, the neon roll cage is perhaps not factory colour but...

Thanks guys. I'm just trying to finish the decals, so to give it a spray of clear gloss.

Hey Pat!

 I love the Jag and the work you have done. I just wish you had photographed it against another background.The silver pebbled background hid details! My poor old eyes couldn't handle it!

Yes it does look good and a rather unusual subject so this build is a real winner!

Thanks guys. Yes my new photo cube has a range of background colours, I didn't know which would suit this one!

Thanks again mustang1989, just a bit smaller than I would normally build. I think I have another 1/32 kit an MG I think!
