Very productive Simon, and intrigued trying to work out which is what...

...I reckon I can see a Nelson, Pretel and Rutherford for a starter, never mind the white ones.

Hi Simon,

Great piccie! Very Happy  Was wondering if one of the red cars, without the front spoiler might be a Michael Shield's rallycross car? Am intrigued to know how you produce the bumper cut-out where the donkey ears fix? I've drilled under-sized holes through the bumper then squared them off with a square-sectioned file to produce the angles, then closed the hole from behind with some flat plastic after smoothing everything down.

It struck me that painting the car with the rear spoilr in position makes a lot more sense than the way I've sprayed to date - spraying separately and gluing on afterwards! Rolling Eyes  I'll use your method from now on! Smile 

I'm trying not to have too many projects on the go at once - couldn't get away with some many lots of work in progress! Cheers, Steve

Hi Steve, I used exactly the same method on the front bumper as you described, great minds eh? Very Happy 

I attach the rear spoilers before painting, because I always fill the gap between the spoiler and the body with milliput, sand it and smooth it to make the spoiler look more part of the tailgate, gives a more realistic look imo.

I thought I would get a few all painted up then I can decal them as and when I have the time Very Happy
