|Reynard 89D Formula 3000 race car
Hasegawa did a series of 1:24 scale open wheel race cars in the early 1990's. This one was chosen to help use up the can of
pink Tamiya paint that I was given.
The kit is pretty much out of the box. I used the decal sheet to mask off the primer white areas and airbrushed the pink areas,
followed by 3 coats of clear. The thin gray stripe was carefully cut from the decal sheet. Hasegawa decals tend to turn yellow over
time. I replaced the Japanese character decals with one from a Studio27 decal sheet meant for a Le Mans Porsche 956 from
around the same time period.
