Awesome stuff, indeed - looking forward to the text, also. As a former 2D graphic designer, I'm interested to learn more about the technique and materials you use to get your ideas off the screen and on to your model. Hope you include some info on how you did the wheels and tyres, too - they really set the car off nicely.

Brilliant to read the updates and explanations you've added to this thread, Tamar - oh, to have your super-special mod-powers and be able to edit an OP!


I've had no problem in the past with the middle and final parts of your process, preparing the vector/bitmap graphics and applying them to the bodyshell. I used to do this on 1:1 cars (vinyl cut stuff, mainly), so the process is the same... just in scale! So, I kinda skipped the computery stuff and went straight to the eye-opening part - the work you do prior to the middle and final parts; in particular, the materials and technique to create an accurate template to work with. So, now I know what tapes to use, I think you might be seeing more than the usual sticker-bomb and 'badge-work' I've done in the past - time to try a proper wrapped livery.

I've always wanted to create my own consistent livery for the MANY projects on the go - Sideways Porsche 935/77 & Zakspeed Capri, MR Slotcar McLaren F1GTR, Black Arrow GT3 Italia... maybe even a Koenigsegg, too. Reckon you might have given me the confidence and inspiration to get things going... thanks for sharing your secrets!

And, Colin - thank Tamar... this is going to mean more work for you!

Thanks to NSR, it seems the C6R has something more closely resembling a Lava Lamp than a gear stick...


...just kidding, of course. Love the work you've done to the interior, Tamar - TBH, that's something I habitually overlook as both my GT3 entries (997 and backup R8) are allowed to run with the lightweight lexan cockpit trays, but you've really brought your model to life with the details you've added. Also, I'd spotted those ducts and openings on the side windows, too - I'd say they look as if they were done at the factory, but that wouldn't really be quite the compliment it's intended to be.

Tamar's still on holiday at the moment... sure he'll be giving us an update as soon as he's back - he raced the car shortly before leaving, so I'm hoping there'll be on-track shots of the C6R with some of the competition!

Love the grub screw jacks idea - although, I also thought they were a retro-fitted means of adjusting body float. I definitely prefer your reason, though.

Tamar, you are the devil with the details! Bet you even make the little "Vvvvt!" noises as you wind those in and out, don't you?
