Are you still going to make the stripes look like stitches?

No longer doing that Mitch. I couldn't see it working out. I really wanted to see how doing the dotted lines by hand would work out.


Shay, this is the livery. My version will be in this style and but orange and green colour and have dotted lines but where the similarity ends.

Thanks for checking out the progress guys.

Well I managed to get 230 some odd dashes of the 270 some odd dashes required cut yesterday. Tonight I started putting them in place. No idea how long this is going to take. This bit took about 30-40min.

A small up date.

I finished up the placing of the dashed today. How I achieved a "straight" line and even spacing was I laid a strip of 1/8 vinyl pin stripping mask for an edge guide then used the width guide I had used when cutting the dashes. The space between them is the same as their width.

As for the actual lining up and running of the dashes, I took liberty and did them slightly differently then the actual livery.

You must look closely at the real car or the kit to notice this.  The dashes that run from the front fenders across the roof and down the back of the car do not run in a straight line. I have run mine in one "straight" line. I have made other small changes too so the lines run straighter.

Next step will be a clear seal coat then the colour masking and the real fun begins.

Thanks harron. I appreciate you looking in. Hoping to get back to it soon. I find these kind of tasks very relaxing, super high focus and attention is where I am most relaxed.
