Silver Circuiter

Another interesting pick from Orlando.
Ford Falcon Race Car
2017 Racing Circuit #4
 So silver/zamac is very hard to pull off here, and there's a fine line between "silver metalflake" and "crappy finish". The paint also appears to be absorbing some of the casting details on the front or back of the car, which isn't a good look. The tampo colors don't work with the car's base color very well -- look at the contrast between the dark blue on the sides. It just feels a little thrown together.


But is it worthy of the display shelf? Going to have to say a hard no on this one -- it isn't better than the existing Ford Falcon Race Car that's up there now, and it isn't special enough to displace something else.
