Looks very cool Colin. Nice detail, and the paint scheme looks very period correct. Great job.

That's a nice little 'showroom' Mini Colin.

Pete is tight, the colour is very period correct and looks to be very close to BMC's GN-17 Porcelain Green.



Damn, now I'm counting rivets!!!!

Excellent build. I think it looks just right. The color is period correct and the workmanship is spot on.

thanks guys ...
the closest colour to Sir Stirling Moss' Ferrari that i built was, as Alan states above, BMC's Porcelain Green.
the closest colour i could get to that, albeit a little light was Vauxhall Reed Green.

i thought this would compliment this little Mini quite nicely, seems it has.

That looks sweet !! The only thing I could say needs attention are the panel lines. If they were a little darker it would really POP !
