Chaps.

Purchased second hand, what started out as a simple exercise in laying down colour and clear coat turned into a full blown rescue operation due to the many damaged parts.

I wanted to keep it really clean and simple, fairly happy with the result.

Hi Webby, thank you.

The colour is by Zero Paints and is pearl light blue.

It is very similar to Tamiya TS-58

Nice clean Merc Mence. The interior colour looks great from what can be seen.
