Very nice! It's looking like a fine build so far. Looking forward to seeing more.

 hi. Just starting the Tamiya 1:12 Williams FW14B. Looks an amazing kit and just started building the engine and transmission. Going to us alclad dull aluminium paint rather than the Tamiya alternative, it gives a much better representation of a real metal block when applied over a gloss black basecoat.

I've been away for a bit, and happy I dropped in today.  I have this kit in my stash, along with the SMS PE set.  Will be watching.

Masking that curve and ending up with that result earns you a Scooby snack!  Any color over white is a nightmare, but it looks like you nailed it

The white in the photo is the primer. I like to do my colors seperately so they are even when I clear over them and wet sand. I masked off the red and shot the white this past weekend.

Love the background. I've been watching the F1 season and it ain't looking too good for everyone but Hamilton about now. Haven't watched the Austin race yet but my racing buddies are gonna be here this Thursday to watch it with me. Your build is quality is very good. Do you use Tamiya tape for your masking jobs? The extra masking you do between colors  is not something  I've ever done, but it certainly makes sense.

CoTA was a great race.  Well, second place back was great to watch.  :-/

I have this car in my stash, along with the SMS PE set and an aftermarket decal set.  I'll be watching this one.  Looks great so far!

MIke Yes I use Tamiya thin masking tape and Tamiya masking sheets. I also use regular masking tape to attach sheets of paper to the Tamiya tape to cover larger areas.

First of all: I tried your method of masking on my Cobra build and an Indy car build a few months ago and they turned out great! I will always use that method between colors, the extra masking is so worth it. Now on to your build; love it.  The paint work on the parts brings all that detail alive.
