The Blue Monterrey looks interesting and I like the colour combination.

Yes the cream will really offset the metallic blue very nicely (which reminds me I haven't taken a photo of the bodywork yet :oops: :oops: :oops: ).

After seeing Jouko's white Lambo and that he bought the engine silver metal transfers on e-bay, I was begining to think about the horrors/nightmares that I had in hand painting them on the original Lambo.

Then Grant mentioned that on his Black Aventador, the Lamborghini logo and silver stripes were factory painted.....

So I did just have to have a look at the Roadster tonight and the result was:

Yes, factory painted !!!!! Phew !!!!

Re the cream/black finish, the pic on the back of the box shows what they intended colour wise.

Hi Mark,

I know, but I very badly explained my thoughts :oops: :oops:

What I meant was that the plastic is all black, and the spray painted cream parts make the black unpainted black part look rather bad in comparison, so to make the black look good, it will need masking off and spraying also - Hopefully this makes some type of sense this time :oops: :)


Ah, got what you mean now Paul ! I agree, it should all have been painted.

some of my mp44 parts are just black plastic while other parts are painted black. The black plastic parts are a little dull looking and some would benefit from a coat of paint. Plastic looks a little toy like as it is and can spoil the overall look.
nice looking seats and dash paul, will you be using leather on this build mate.

Hi Casp,
A very good question :) :) I'm still in :think: mode on this.

I didn't do any on the last Lambo, though I'm thinking of possibly just a carpet job on this, as more will be seen.

But if so then what colour?! First came cream, then black but the blue I've used on the GTR might match? :think: :)

Hi Jouko,

You are so right, however they must have listened to customer feedback or watched forums like this :) :) :)

I'm not too sure if a blue Aussie style leather carpet will be right or not (though with the glue it will darken):

I did also phone Airfix as a follow up re:

• The colour of the cream paint
• Which glues to use

The advice was:
• On the Paint the Advice was:
o Get a Humbrol colour chart to match it
 Ergh I already have one and I won’t go in to the rest re: getting a match !!!
o Get paint from a hardware store
 What planet do they think I’m on to try and match it
o Phone up Lamborghini themselves for the exact colour match
 Hum Have Porcher used the same colours?
 By this time, I’d given up the will to live

On The Glue:
• Superglue will sort it all out
o Whilst quite funny (especially regarding me), they ignored all my comments regarding different types of glue and even Gizzie Cat was pulling me off the ceiling by the end of the call!!

I've been searching for reference pics on the Lambo Roadster interior today.

Most pics look towards the dash etc. so I can see where any carpet should be around there, though I can't find any from the reverse angle :think:

I've been doing a bit of research on the Aventador and colours for the carpet.

Whilst the below isn't an Aventador (I don't think), it's the best clue that I have at the moment:

Perhaps the leather I used on the DB5 (Aussie Style) might be the best option (although I do have a lighter colour cream, but I think that's too white) :think: :think: :think:

Many thanks both for the links and photos of the model. :D :D

As I'm actually able to work on the Nissan GTR again :shock: :shock: I'm concentrating on that at the moment and the Xmas Comp ! :D

The one thing I really like though is the blue for the display case base, so I'll definitely go down that route.

With the carpet, I am still undecided on cream (two versions)/blue/black :think: :think: :) :)

Hi BA,
Out of the options that I've suggested, which would you personally go for? :) :)
