Thanks kev, I agree with you, although I don't think I will attempt anything else with respect to painting, I wanted to repaint the the car in chrome but thought against it after I messed up the front wing, did you have a build diary on here a while ago? With the helmet etc? I remember seeing 'kevs build' and it was deleted or taken down?

Sounds good Mark and some of those 'game' paints (am I right in thinking you mean Citadel?) are really useful especially the metallics. I remember myself how much fun it was doing the heat effect on the exhausts and you'll know exactly what I mean when I say that when it comes right it is so satisfying!! Drool Cool

Keep up the good work, I hadn't noticed your build before but I'll be watching your diary from now on!! Cool ThumpUp

Kev, did you have a McLaren build diary on here where you added loads of detail to it?

I did Mark, I started building the MP4/23 when it was first released (why I joined the forum) and my username used to be 'SennaMentalMe' then but I lost all of the photos when they suddenly inexplicably disappeared from my Photobucket account and stupidly I didn't have them backed up anywhere?! My build diary and 'Finished Build' Gallery topics have been deleted since as they didn't make any sense without any photos and I also have a new username now anyway? I also built my own Hamilton 1:8 Helmet as well to go with it - with some much appreciated decals courtesy of Spencer (Warthog). Thanks again for that Spencer.

Shame to lose the photos of my build like that really but that's life sometimes.
