Green paint.

With a coat of paint the Zagato is starting to come alive. I think the overall shape is now very pleasing and the essence of the car has been captured. The mystery of Aston Martin competition colours still goes on. The photographs i've been working from show a pretty nasty shade of green which i'm lead to believe is Sea green. This was also used on one of the John Ogier DB4 GTs. The shade i've managed to create however looks more like the Almond green that the DBR1s were painted.
Not much more to do now. The templates for the window surrounds, grille etc are all pretty much there and just need scanning into Corel Draw and tracing. It's then down to my etching guy to see how quickly he can turn them round.

  1. Thats looking superb Graham. I think the green looks really good - pretty much spot I would say.

    Looking forward to the day they go on sale!
