I'm a firm believer in the moto "Whatever rocks your boat". If YOU think it's nice, then it's nice. And that's what matters. :cheers

Standox is a German company that makes special paints (among other things) that change color depending on the angle you view it.StygianMax said:
Ahh...now I get it. Thanks VR. :cheers It sounds a bit like that Chromashift (sp?) stuff for 1:1 cars (usually used in the import tuner scene).vegasracer said:Standox is a German company that makes special paints (among other things) that change color depending on the angle you view it.StygianMax said:

It think it's Finnish for Kryptonite to Ronan, LUW, and RichardM.
:iagree :iagree :iagree It just doesn't make sense to me to slap this stuff on a highly detailed race car model! :badidea :badidea :badideaRichardM said:sittingduck, I'm with Ronan and LUW on this - if you like it, then by all means. I just find Standox more acceptable on a street car than a vintage race car. Glad you like it. :cheers
:lol Yeah, I do know what you mean! I'm just not a fan of the Standox cars, but have you considered the "test" versions of the 1967 LM cars? One is dark blue with no logos or numbers, but it does have white pinstriping. Overall it looks pretty good I think!sittingduck said:To Ronan..correct!, that's why I would trade mine for a navy blue version..That would show off the beautiful lines of this car without the distraction of color shifting.
Oh right! Sorry! I didn't realise you had already got the Standox model! I agree if you just want to show the lines of a model then a non-liveried colour is best (but for me I love the race history of my models so I go the other route!).sittingduck said:Ronan...yes, I have seen them, but only after I paid the bucks for the version I have now..Exoto can take a bite out of your wallet. lol...The whole point of my review was that although I am "stuck" with a car that is of a questionable color, authenticity and collectability, I think, after several months of perusal, that the piece still shows the elegance and brutal power of the real GT 40's...
Thanks again C7! I still love my new banner!!! :cheerscalgary7er said:I made his banner using a photo of one of the ones in his collection. Just click on Ronan's banner and it will take you to his fantastic collection, and wonderfull photos :cheers :cheers :cheers
:lol I do indeed have some Sauber C9s! I absolutely love them!sittingduck said:To Ronan:..hey, by the by, I see you have an Exoto Mercer C9 as your "calling card"..Do you own one? If not then get one!..I have the Thackwell/Kouros version and it is by far the most exquisite peice of workmanship I have seen in 1/18...very delicate (if you love it glove it..lol).
