Hi all,

Thought I would share some photos of my recent purchase complete with the "correct" decals that I applied. I painted the helment as I have been unable to find "Prost" decals.

A word of warning though. The tampo on this car flakes off. One small impact or scratch and small chunks come off. I did not realise this until I had completed the work otherwise I might have returned it for replacement. As it is I have repaired the damage and I will now put a coat of Klear on the car to protected it.

Sorry for the number of photos and their poor quality.....













Cheers,

Philip

Thanks for the comments.

The decals were bought as I cannot do clever stuff like that.

They look a bit green in the photos, but in the flesh they are the right shade of blue!

Cheers all,

Philip

Very nice... Know what you mean about the tampo. I did the helmet on my Senna in the 1992 set and was disappointed to rub off some of the tampo with very ligh handling.

Boooo Scalextric on that one!

Car looks great, would like to use one of these in club racing. Will Scaley "Sport" silicone tyres fit these wheels?
Anybody know?

Hi,

Steve A,
Sorry, but I don't know about the tyres and I do not have any to check it out. I think they will fit but I cannot be sure.

Bear13583,
The decals were from Pattos in Austrailia. Excellent quality and the new waterslide are easy to apply.

A word of advice though; I think that the Patto's 1/32 scale decals are a bit on the large side. I always ask Bruce (Patto) to reduce the size by 20% so that they come out at 80% original size. This seems to be about right (85% would also be OK I think). These ones are 80%.

Cheers,
Philip
