    Red Mirage... Red Ligier... Whatever you want to call it.

    I used Testors acrylics and clear nail polish for this one. Decals were made from scratch with label paper and a printer.

    There was originally a custom box project to go along with this, but that got scrapped somewhere along the way.

    Comments and criticism welcome, so long as the thread stays on topic. Sprry about the image size, I'm just getting back into the groove with Photobucket.

    actually i wasnt specific enough. I LOVE THAT FREAKING THING> the red is the perfect color for this mold. the decals are wonderul and it has the perfect amount of shine. did you use any clearcote or just the polish?

    Rumble- I used the clear nail polish as the clear coat. It was that for free (mom had an old bottle) or going to Walmart and finding what they had that day and buying it. I chose the cheaper one.

    Thanks for the kind words so far.

    nice job on yours, but i suggest getting the reprolabels from reprolables.com. really brings out the personality more.

    I was so thinking about doing that but dont have the cash to buy another Mirage. I barely have the cash to buy the red remake coming out.
