No. Not Yet. As A few Members here know, I have started to concentrate on a themed collection. Hence, Its only Mercedes And BMW from now onwards, with the occasional other brand.

This is my Next. It is an SLK 55 AMG

Guys,

I have a year old 1:24 model of Audi R 8 in white with me, boored I want to modify by doing two tone color, led lights. I have 2 colors in stock Red and Black. My question

1. Which will be better black or red.

2. Which areas to paint and which one to left in original color.

As for led lighting it will be a easy job if the space permits. I am attaching sample photos for all to give suggestions

The Corolla is a Kinsmart. I picked it up from a toy store in Brookfields, near HLL (Bangalore). They have another one in beige as well as black.

@sinner & @Cyrus43, Thanks for the inputs on lighting. Shall try out using white sheet the next time. Would love to experiment some more on the lighting techniques.
