Interscale Stolberg 2015 - modelling event

On Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 February of 2015 the modelling event "Interscale Stolberg" took place in the small town of Stolberg near Aachen in Germany.

Checking my reference images I noticed that the underside also has a carbon-fibre pattern. So out came my Scale Motorsport CF decal collection. I chose decal 1020 from Scale Motorsport for this. The pattern resembles the pattern of the Revell decal the most. I only noticed that the SMS is a lot brighter so I will need to tone it down a bit. In the meantime I also finished the extra piece of rollcage with the headrest. For the headrest-panel I also used SMS CF decal. But this time I opted for 1424. I g
