The Ultimate Modeler's Block
Posted by kustombuilder1 on Saturday, March 13, 2004 2:42 AM
I have Monogram's Lamborghini Countach from thier Exotic Car Series that I started in 1991. I cannot decide on what color it should be. It has sat for twelve years at the point of having to paint the body in order to continue assembly.

Please help me past this block. The color with the most votes is what it's gettin' sprayed. I'll post pics when finished.

I'll give the poll a couple of weeks. This is so I can get the most votes, and also finish my Emergency Vehicles CBP.

Thanks SO much. You don't know how much this will mean!!!Big SmileBig SmileBig SmileBig Smile

Any shade of blue, blue is my favorite color, and I have never seen a car that didn't look good in some shade of blue.

black looks best on ANYTHING. period.

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

I went with yellow, and I think a Boyd's yellow has a nice 'chrome' look to it that would go nice on that Countach.

It may seem uninspired, but I chose red. Black would be a close second, and never white.

OOps, I think I said it twice. I must be tired. Did I mention black won?

I'm just happy that's all. 12 years to finish a kit. Wow.

I built the 1\12 Otaki Lambo. Countach back in '85 or '86. ( It was an awesome kit for the time, by the way...).
I originally painted it red, but after seeing a pic of a yellow one, I decided to strip it and re-paint it in yellow. It looked much better that way to me.

I have a Fujimi Lambo Countach that I started building about 15 years ago.
I had already decided to paint it yellow but decided to hold off on the painting until I could decide what colours should be used on the interior.
I still have not decided....any suggestions ??

How about black with yellow inserts on the seats and door panels?
