This is a UT kit built completely box stock with only paint used tp pick out fine details, of which there are plenty. This was one of the most fun kits I have ever worked with. Minimal issues with fit and good instructions. It's a shame they went out of business. The white and the blue are paint the rest are kit supplied decals.
This livery was done for Keke Rosberg's last season as he retired at the end.

Luv the DTM class racers and this one is one fine model!  As you write, the details are brought out beautifully with careful painting.  Thanx!

A fun kit. I'd never heard of the maker, so I was skeptical, but a quick look at the parts told me it
was quality all the way. I've never seen another kit by UT. Interesting subject too.
