      My Isis White Aventador arrived today!
      I find this part of any project the most fun, getting the pictures together, ordering the materials etc and planning the spec.

      [B]Specification will be as follows:[/B]
      [B]Exterior:[/B]
      Isis White paint.
      Silver wheels! [I](Controversial I know as itís down speccing the car but I like to see the wheels and think it suits the white)[/I]
      Yellow Spring Kit PR code: 2MQ [I](I like this, an option at ordering. Seeing yellow springs through the rear window looks cool!)[/I]
      Yellow callipers PR Code: PC3

      [B]Interior:[/B]
      Nero Ade leather with contrasting Giallo Taurus Yellow stitching Bicolour Sportivo (PR code: OUH)
      [I]Iím hoping flooding the dips in the Pocher seats with flat white, then yellow, then wiping the excess off will give the right effect.[/I]
      Steering wheel with Suede leather and yellow stitching (PR Code: 1ML)
      Carbon interior kit

      Exterior mods are based on a company called Capristo who do most of the exterior trim in carbon fibre. It has a matt finish which will stop the model looking too gaudy!
      I shall do all the kits black trim with the Capristo parts. They do the wing and air intakes in carbon but I prefer them in white.

    TBH I'm going to leave well alone with this part.
    I've seen numerous attempts at replicating crackle finish in mini-scale and it nearly always look a bit poor.
    Either it looks like concrete or as if the part has carpet all over it.
    Please though, if anyone is going to do it, prove me wrong and maybe I'll re-think.

    will be aifbrushing with black coat.
    Leave the glue and sand Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's and only use your airbrush Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's : double the normal distance and the paint dries in the air and becomes a sand Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's like layer. For the right distances and pressure please experiment.

    I gave the grey part a thick layer of paint, let it dry for about 8/9 minutes and than pushed gently a brush in the thickened paint than you get a crackled finish too
    Regards

    Crackle finish?.....Do you mean casted finish? Like when a part is made using a sand Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's mold and molten metal is poured in...leaving the texture of the sand Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's on the casted part? In this scale....that texture should be very fine..It might be better to use a powder cleanser or toothpaste and brush. and rough the surface of the air box to get a scale texture and then wash off and paint.

    I got exactly the same idear, and it was a fiasco. It covered all the fine details on the [B]INTAKE MANIFOLD[/B], and [B]CYLINDER HEAD[/B] cover. The surface becomes muth to rough, and after drying you must seal the sprayed surface with clear varnish. First then you can spray it over, with black paint. Luckily it is water based, and i had the luck to remove it again, before it was finally dry, and i saved my cylinder heads and engine cover.
    Therefore try it on your own risk.

    Why did you post a photo of a real 1:1 Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's Testarossa power plant ? We would like to see how you did it in 1:8 scale...!!!

    Decided to add more detail to the fuel rails. A bit of research and I elected for green injectors and the fuel pressure regulator should be chrome silver. Yeah, the fuel rail maybe should be black but I elected for a bit of colour.
