OK now I see it, and I wouldn't have wanted to miss this. The application of paint is flawless.

What are you using for paint?

I did not paint this one - as stated in the initial post, the body was done by a master modeler in the UK by name John Judd. As you say, it is immaculate, easily some of the best work I have ever seen.

Thanks for recognizing the pit buildings! I spent so much time there as a kid, they just had to be on my track.

And I see the shot of my Lola in Google, interesting that it should come up in a search like that.

Ok Thanks, I thought that meant the body was cast by this fellow and did not realize it was the paint as well.

Regardless, a stunning example of a gloss finish.
