Hi everyone , I just wanted to tell everyone the model is not suppose to be high gloss the real car is not glossy at all.

張洪維 (6 days ago)
the steering wheel is upside down
john donovan (7 days ago)
oooh you used flat clear. i see hah
Alan Bushell (20 days ago)
Did you use a dull/flat coat or semi-gloss. I'm more of an armor guy so I typically will use a dull/flat coat on my kits. Plus the metallic finish of the paint is throwing me off.
Jason Gibbs (22 days ago)
It's a 6.2 not 6.3
Phu Vet (1 month ago)
I have this one...wish more kits came as complete. Especially the masks. Funny thing...mercedes spent a million dollars to design a scaled down Viper. It seems you used all tamiya products except their clear.

Is there the F1 Safety Car version of this car model?
kathie bryn (9 months ago)
Why is it that you never show all of the build are you hiding something
Cris Coulter (9 months ago)
Wish I had your job. I've been building models for 50 years. Building real car's for 40. Getting too old to build hot rods! I live vicariously through models now.

Christopher Johnston (10 months ago)
Just curious, any reason you are using canned painted instead of using a sprayer?
Thomas James (10 months ago)

Did you use a primer under the TS-42 or did you spray it directly to the bare plastic? Very good model by the way
Exotics of Melbourne (1 year ago)

pedro7g5 (1 year ago)
Dude you set the steering wheel upside down...
raymond silva (11 months ago)
pedro7g5 ahhh i see hahaha
pedro7g5 (11 months ago)
raymond silva he transfered the symbol pointing down instead of up on the steering wheel. The upside of the wheel has the smaller finger slot...
raymond silva (11 months ago)
pedro7g5 no se didn’t the symbol is right side up?

Tom Edwards (1 year ago)
I really want to get into model building. Is this an easy kit for a beginner? Also, what materials and tools will I need? Thanks
the Kit is actually not very hard assembly , just have to be careful with decals and paint
Kevin Ng (1 year ago)
Hi Andy, great video.  How do paint the window frame on the sides?  (the black trim).  Do you mask and airbrush them or free hand?
HobbyMan UK (1 year ago)
Wonderful finished model. Would love to see you do more car kits or even perhaps a Bust! 😀
spacemanvw (1 year ago)
Very cool car - is it possible to buy a engine- kit for it ?

Al Schwarz (1 year ago)
Andy, what is your opinion on dipping the clear parts (like the windshield, etc) in Future floor wax? I've seen videos on doing that, but haven't tried it.
君heru (1 year ago)
Simple video and very informative
Jerald Chan (1 year ago)
oh man so nice you should help me make my ferrari fxx model i screwed up so bad on that :(
Carmen Huang (1 year ago)
I think the windscreen masking should on the inside....
Michael yau (1 year ago)
The windscreen masking tape should have gone on the inside and so as the black paint on it. Plus I think you forgot the one of the metal transfer in the rearview mirror. But otherwise a great built thanks very much for the detailed review.
Aaron Baldea (1 year ago)
Great job on this, Andy!
プラモデラーu (1 year ago)
なんであるの?
Subarulah (1 year ago)
Nice work, my only comment is that you should try to put clear over the carbon decals/parts.
Imperial Diecast (1 year ago)
Motormax makes one of these also at 1/24 but it looks like absolute garbage (especially rims). On the pro side you dont have to assemble, glue and paint it yourself.
great job Andy, you really should build more cars😉
Sean Melchionda (1 year ago)
It was so great to see you apply your expert skills and insight to a car kit! I don't do armor... just cars so it was great to see this.
it seems that the right mirror was not glued... :) stunning model
Did you use those little front wing decals as you mentionned at the 12:55 on the video?
yes I noticed it was off after watching video too , it has been re attached, thanks for watching
Markfit for the win!
I went to the Mercedes museum in Stuttgart and I am now looking to build a car kit, so maybe this is it. Nice tip about warming the spray can Andy.I have a hell of a job getting them to work well for me.
Danny Montoya (1 year ago)
Awesome kit and you did a superb job with it my friend. Thanks Andy!
Scottish NS Rail Fan (1 year ago)
Beautiful model
AP12BG (1 year ago)
Andy,greetings,just a question on using Tamiya thin cement. Does Tamiya thin cement glue parts even if the parts are already painted? I am a old school modeler and I know in the old days using regular model master glue you have to remove the paint to glue the plastic or otherwise you are not not able to glue the parts. Is this the case with Tamiya thin cement? Thanks and as always good work.
Kroegtijger (1 year ago)
Looks very nice! Great job!
Paul Cooke (1 year ago)
Magic kit great build
Kwago (1 year ago)
This looks amazing! Looking forward to more cars!
BC on PC (1 year ago)
I've never made a car before and this made me want to more than anything else has. I think you're right about the paint as well. At that scale you wouldn't see the flakes.
Hster68 (1 year ago)
Andy you forgot to finish that exhaust bro.....it needed just a touch of black.
Hster68 (1 year ago)
Awesome job by the way. Lovely work.
I did right after I loaded the video I saw that I had forgot, but it's been added.Thanks for watching
Barry Thornton (1 year ago)
No polishing? if so, thats a nice finish .
Art CMBDIA (1 year ago)

Robert voss (1 year ago)
Wow , what a great kit . Well done tamiya . Fantastic build Andy 👍
Gilbert Lathlin (1 year ago)

Kommander Rahnn (1 year ago)
More car builds please!
Kommander Rahnn (1 year ago)
Tamiya needs to up their game with metallic paints. Most of them look like crap.
