HPI 200mm FD - Sneak Peek.

YAAAA! Awesome. Getting there.

Finally got around to painting up the Shell.

A splash of translucent Silver and then White. Makes a nice pearl.
Black Panda bonnet.
I blacked out underneath for a strong finish. Forgot to do the rear buckets in my rush. doh!

But I salvaged that.

Light buckets are looking cool!.

Here's some tips.

1. HPI Stupidly put the protective film on the wrong side of the rear wing.
Lucky I'm not going to use it, but I painted it anyway. Be careful. I should have checked

2. For masking. Photocopy the decals then cut them out of the remaining window mask film. Small front lights and rear lights can be masked easily.
