sauber C30- 02

Hi again!
a new little update! I've been working in so many parts at the same time but it's difficult to show the progress...
Once the body and wing parts were primed, I painted three layers of white (from zero paints). When the body was dried I used the masks that can be found in the box (they are really great and a big help - I'm sorry I haven't got any pictures of the body with the masks) and painted the dark grey using three layers of tamiya's x-10 gun metal. Fujimi indicates to paint these zones black but looking at some pictures it seems more dark metallic grey than black to me. So gun metal color seemed a good option.
Now I'm waiting to have good weather here (today is raining) to paint some layers of clear to prevent silvering before apply the decals.
I also painted all back parts of the wings with semigloss black.
I started working on the seat belts. As I don't have any green clothes, I will use medical tape to simulate the belt material. I will cut some stripes (3-4mm width) and I will paint them with Tamiya's Park Green TS-36.
I now have a dilemma..... to CF all the black parts or not.....  maybe I will only CF the suspension arms and the inner face of the back wing plates. I will think about it....
Next update soon!  thanks to all!!!!

Great to see some more on this one. Josep how did you find the masks went on? Did they conform to the curves easily enough? Looking good.

Hi Shayne,
the masks are IMHO simply perfect. They are vey easy to work with.
Thank you very much again to follow my blog!
