Undecided on colour for MP4/30

Why McLaren always must select difficult colours for their liveries. I've made more photos under direct sun light and on photos Zero colour seems to be very close to photos of real car. But in person colour looks too light and too grey to me. I wonder how real car looks in person. I guess I should visit a GP each year to see real colours of cars with my own eyes. Still undecided on what will I do about colour of my model. I start to think about leaving Zero colour unchanged. Will just polish off blemishes and then it would be off to clear coat.

Here are photos from under the sun:

Here are couple from under artificial light:


  1. Hi Sergey

    I'd stick with the ZP colour. Looks close enough to me.
    As can be seen from your pictures the colour seems to change a lot depending on the lighting conditions.
    I doubt you'll be able to find an exact match looking at pictures of the real car.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Not sure to be honest, it looks great but seeing others in black makes me lean towards that...Jeff from F1M would be a good source as he gets up close each year in Melbourne. Paint looks great.
