1:8 McLaren MP4/4 "Sennas 1st Title"

Post by senninha »

I´m done. After almost one year I completed my biggest project, the McLaren in big scale 1:8. The model contains over 4000 parts. I used round about 5 cans of kamiya primer, 4 packages of the Zero paints white and fluorescent red, 3 packages of 2k clear coat from zero, over 15 sheets of several carbon decals. My special thank you goes to all the members who wrote a lot of comments and to my mate GPMODELS. Thank you for your big support. I´m very proud of this build, due to the fact its 99,5 percent model. In a few weeks the model will move to switzerland in his new home. Thanks also to the customer a big friend of mine.

Lets go to the pictures

I keep telling myself that this is a model, but my mind does not want to believe me! Absolutely stunning in every single way, and then some.

Simply running out of words mate, perfect clean and nice work, the level of details is outstanding! :)
A real masterpiece you created in the past 12 months, i bet the owner will love every tiny screw of it, never seen such level of details in that scale!
Thx for the kind words mate, i realy enjoyed your build a lot and i hope your break will not take too long, can`t wait to see what`s your next project, maybe the upcoming 1:12 Lotus 99T? :)

Fantastic, beautiful job - many different shades so it doesn't all look monotone black
