I was asking what brand his Diecast 500 Abarth was. As it did not look like mine, which is a Bburago.

@ Shwetanshu : awesome cars Veyron & DBR9. Would love to have that DBR9.

@Balenopower : Oh so nice DTM's, makes me envy & wish everyones girlfriend were like your's.

@ CLS55AMG : Awesome collection, mind blowing. The classic BMW (could not recoznise the model) blew me away.

This thread is really rocking.

I have painted my Audi R8 1:18 Maisto. Here are the pictures

The Car as is

The Scale Model Thread-1.jpg

The Scale Model Thread-2.jpg

After masking (since the glass windhield and the rear wind screen was riveted I have to mask all the way).

The Scale Model Thread-3.jpg

After Painting

The Scale Model Thread-4.jpg

The masking removed

The Scale Model Thread-5.jpg

there are some imperfections (cause of the low quality masking tape and dust in the enviorment).

Works to do

1. Baking of Paint whole night beneath the table lamp.

2. Touchup / cleaning of imperfections.

3. Rubbing polish to remove dirt particles and final waxpolish for the gloss.
