Received 2 body kits from a seller in Germany today, both MRRC.
A Porsche 911RS which is I believe designed to take the Sebring chassis.
Also a Porsche 904 which is a rerelease of the Monogram body.

Bought some emulsion paint test post and painted the layout with grey, brown and green paints. I used Dulux test pots as these have a built in roller and it made the job a bit easier.

Painted the Vanwall rear suspension chrome, mirrors green and the wheels silver. Also airbrushed some chrome parts for the Tamiya Honda model.
The rear Vanwall rear suspension came out very nice but not so happy with the mirrors and wheels, this may have been something to do with the acetone used to remove the unwanted chrome plate.

Primed the Vanwall rear suspension, wheels and mirrors but it was to hot in the shed to do any thing else.

Gave the new airbrush a very quite try today, will leave the proper test until tomorrow when the weather will be quite a bit warmer.

Bought a new airbrush, a Neo for Iwata, which arrived to day.

This should have been a car update as I had intended to give the MRRC Lotus Cortina and the Vanwall their clearcoats today and at the same time try out the Zero Paints 2k Diamond Clearcoat which I bought a little while ago. However it turned out that my airbrush needed a full strip down clean and while doing this I managed to loose a bit the the floor monster, so no painting today.
