I believe the title says it all.
Got two whitekits from France. I have been waiting for decals to arrive.
I got this set of Atalays decals from Evotech.

As a base cote, I used semigloss black. I do not know, but the red from the pics looks "deep" and not super bright.

After some light masking I applied a good layer of Tamiya Bright Mica Red.

I may do another like this BUT in metallic British Racing Green.
Then add the new Bentley GT from Sideways in same colour scheme.
Heck, after that effort I'll probably make my own "Ltd Ed" box to keep them in?

Some D Sation Decals would look good on it, even if not the right base color , sometimes I take the liberty of personalization on some models event if it doesn’t looks exactly like the 1:1 car.😉

I've looked long and hard at the D'Station car and just can't commit to a green.

Now realising I should have looked for the Carrera car at Havant today for a reference. :rolleyes:

Decals times. These are Atalaya decals. I like them but I wish they were more precise with adding all the logos and sponsors.
Also, it would be nice if some of the logos were of the right dimensions.
Incidentally, Atalaya specifies that this set is for the Sideways Aston.
But I really like the quality of the paper and pigments they use.

I also managed to do the lightweight interior with my vac former.
I promised some pics to @MALAFAMA to the overall process.
This is the vac former I made from some scrap wood I had.

I fix the parts that I want to vacform with some bluetack.

I use paper clips to fix the material to the frame:

Put in the oven with the grill on at 200 C
Gas Engineering Composite material Space Electricity


Then wait for it to start sagging

Turn on the vacuum cleaner and place the frame on top of the vac former - careful because it is hot to handle with bare hands

Voila!

Man, the hard part is to get the oven 😬, can’t imagine what my wife would say/do if she catches me “playing” with the oven and/or in the kitchen, don’t know how you and Laurence do to get away with it 😅, lucky guys 🍀

In my case I would only need the vacuum cleaner, I would have to buy one although I am almost sure that someone will tell me how to do it at home.

My wife has thrown in the towel in the fight against strollers hehehehe.
