Sprayed the Arii VW Beetle body using a Aston Martin Verde British Racing Green, from a colour matched spray can. It's an interesting colour as it changes with the light from very bark, almost black, to a nice BR Green.
Also primed the resin Renault 11 body with black primer ready to have a silver topcoat.
While the airbrush was out I have also primed all the parts for the 1/20th scale Tamiya Lotus 25 using Vallejo grey and black primer.

Gave the Alpine chassis a test run in the body and a problem occurred, because I'm hoping to fit the engine in the model and have the bonnet opening, as per the kit, the point where the front body post is fitting is quite weak and it gave way. To help strengthen this area before refitting the post I have had to fit some interior parts to the car body, not what I really wanted to do yet. Will leave it all for a few days to fully set before doing anymore testing.

had to change the mounting method on the Alpine chassis as I couldn't get a good bond to the body for side mounting. Also designed a two part adjustable body mounting post.

Received an incomplete Champion C set today, mainly just the track. I bought this set to get the included accessory pack, 6 sets of carbon motor brushes and 5 packs of the original gauze type pick-up braids.
