Very tidy, Colin. Lovely work (again!).

As a matter of interest, did the decals for the flanks come as one or did you have to aply several different decals to make up the sides? Pros and cons of both ways and I personally prefer the individual decal approach as large decals can be very tricky to apply when the surface is 'less than flat'!!

Cheers, Steve

Thanks Colin, it's always good to know what others do with their decals.

I have some projects coming up that are very decal-intensive, and I'd be wondering whether or not to set the elements separately or together on one big decal. I'll use a mixed approach but with more of the decals being individual items, along the lines you've mentioned.

Many thanks, Colin. Appreciate the info.

Cheers, Steve

Ah no worries Steve, it's always good to find out how we all go about fitting decals,

I'm working on this today and ended up painting the gold as I'm not keen on using the gold decal,
Not sure how these decals will turn out but I've always wanted to see a Schuco Fisher Gold Card Manta
Sure if it doesn't work out well I'll paint it black and do McHale's car Wink

Cheers Colin!  Very Happy 

Great-looking Manta you have there. I've not seen the 1:1 scale version so will be interesting to see your progress.  Cool 

I've very recently experimented with using decals instead of masking tape and found it to be very good. Decal paper gives nice, clean, crisp lines and as its so thin, means the paint doesn't risk building up against the edges.  sunny 

I'm working on my Toleman/ Lee Paris-Dakar 6R4 kit this afternoon. I sprayed the white paint a couple of months back and have done nothing with it since then... until now.

Happy decaling!! Cheers, Steve

Right I've been fighting with these decals all day!!

They stay flat and won't fold round the model and when they dry out they just fall off,
It's as if there is no sticky stuff on the back of them so in the end I had to use super glue!! lol
I finally got them to sit where I wanted and sprayed a few coats of lacquer over the model to seal them on

Here's a few pics of how it's sitting until tomorrow.... think I'll hit the pub for a few pints  drunken

Beautiful work, Colin.

It's been well worth the perseverance and effort. Well done that man.... and now I know what the model looks like too!  Smile 

I can identify with the non-sticky decal situation. I've got around it using Micro Set, which usually does the trick by adhering the decal where it needs to be. Haven't used super glue before...... I could see that ending in disaster, potentially.  Rolling Eyes  Glad it's all worked out for you.

Cheers, Steve

Cheers Lads, it was a tricky enough wee build this one!!
Decals were not made for this base + they were very old and were hard to work with,

Here's the finished model after adding the black detail, RHD dash + wiper conversion,









Here's the Old and New sitting side by side

Your Manta looks far better than the Vitesse.

I agree. Your Schuco creation is much easier on the eye, and painting the car Gold first was key, along with the other modifications. I would be very pleased with that!

I have those decals, and a Schuco base car...... can I ask where did you get the RHD dash, as I also need to convert the McRae Manx version?

Superb work.

Bobby.

Cheers for the feedback Lads,

Bobby the Manta dash is one of the easier ones to convert,
You just cut the steering wheel and pedals off and glue them on the other side,
It's the same with the clocks but you need a very sharp blade and a steady hand!!
