Tamiya Lotus 79 1979 WIP

It looks nice in Racing Green too. Parts have dried and I dry fitted them together for a quick shot. Painted surfaces are pretty good, but some polishing would be needed in places where there are some small contaminations and some orange peal. Up to this moment not much masking was required. I have to paint parts black on inside next. That will require a lot of masking. But first I have to wait for supplemental TABU decals to arrive, apply them and then put clear coat over. I wait with black until clear coat is on, because clear will protect decals and main color from possible over spray if masking isn't perfect. It's also easier to remove over spray by just light sanding/polishing from clear coat layer without affecting main color and decals underneath.
