Here it is, in all its WRC Blue and Flouro yellow glory!
No decals were harmed as none were used. Just lots of incantations and masking.

For the marking I printed out the rego an the Fuji logo as teeny as possible, then overlaid it with masking tape.
Using a fresh scalpel blade I then cut out the mask's and applied them one by one. 1/72 is probably the absolute limit for making your own masks!

You've done a great job with the painting, but the masking tape decor :o Wow, fantastic, I wouldn't have the patience or a steady hand to cut those decor out of the masking :clap: :clap: :clap:
