Okay all you hot shoes. I have a kit of this car coming from Jolly Old, and I pant to learn how you all do the MG on the deck lid. Seems like a huge thing to me, but you all seem to do it with such ease. PLEASE share your secrets for doing this!!!

Is there a GT conversion available for this kit? I drove a GT back in the late '80s and would love to model it

Checked out the link, but no detailed info as to how he did it. Sorry, but I need detailed info, maybe with step-by-step pics as to how the MG on the deck lid is done. Thanks.

Everyone does it differently. I did it by first undercoating then applying a coat or two of green paint. Then I scraped back some of the paint from the insignia and covered it with blutac to mask it before a final coat of green. Then I took the blutac off and carefully applied silver paint to the insignia.
