Very nice job , I’ll wait for the availability of a good set of decals or a good RTR livery.Hi,
As I am not taking part in this year's painting competition, I can already present you my interpretation of the McLaren Jota car.
The car is being prepared for race by a cute lady.
I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed painting it.
I think the main problem is the adhesion of the base layer. But I agree that a good clear should prevent any interaction between paint type.@ Dany, when using paints from different manufacturers I always apply a thin sealing/isolating layer of Mr Hobby Clear (the petrol resistant type) between them.
I find the info very interesting, as I have found that the M6 and the Ford Gt are still a bit behind the Lambo in terms of performance (at least in my personal tests), so way to go for Sideways!I have both, Carrera (body lightened to within An inch of its' life) with a Prospeed chassis and 1mm offset pod, Baby King motor, longer gearing, lightweight wheels etc, which is a great performer alltogether - and boxstock Sideways 720S GT3.
Referring to scale dimensions, the Sideways one is actually identical to the Carrera, even my home made vacform interior tray fits the Sideways without mods, so no scale hotrodding here (as they did with the M6). So using decals made for a Carrera should work out just fine with minimal adjustment here and there.
Performance wise: I tested both back-to-back at Slotracefriends' Ninco track, and within 2 laps the totally stock (bar Slot It 1172 G25 rear tires - same for both) Sideways did exactly the same lap times as they heavily modded Carrera/Prospeed, or even slightly better, with far easier handling. That's with a barely run in motor, standard gearing, original front tires and wheels...
Alltogether it'll be some serious competition for the Sideways Lambo Huracan GT3, if not the new Sideways flagship...
