Default HPI McLaren F1

Hey everyone,

I'm terrible at painting so I usually don't bother with new shells, but being a child of the 90s I couldn't help myself when HPI (re)released the F1. I decided to take my time and put a lot of prep work into this shell. I planned on doing the Lark paint scheme, but I decided to do something a little different. I'm happy with how it came out!

Apologies for the lousy cell phone pictures. Who else has done the McLaren?

Dude, one word, HORRIBLE!! LMAO

Whoa, Stop Cursing, it was a joke...

ONE WORD- RADICAL!

Nice job man, it's sick, it has like a mechanical look to it, the way you placed the colors, and the details are pretty SWEET too...

Sorry about my little joke..

I used to run a McLaren F1 on my rs4.  Mine was silver too.  Yours looks really good, nice job.
