Polyparaphenylene terephthalamide...
...and no less than three new references this week from Hobby Design of this tongue-twister, also known by its closest friends as Kevlar :). Featuring a golden background and three different patterns, they're perfect to simulate the patterns lately seen in race cars and bikes.

Well, and not only that... Hobby Design is on fire this week! If that was not enough, they also bring us two new rims with exquisitely detailed resins (and metal turned air valves!), a new photoetch for the Nissan GT-R R35, and the upgrade of two old references for the Sauber C9 and the Aston Martin DBS with significant design enhancements.

For the final touches, a whole new color rainbow for race cars have also arrived this week from Zero Paints: the gorgeous intense orange for the Porsche GT3, several tones for the different Ferrari 250GTO, some hues for Lamborghinis, ...

Call it Polyparaphenylene terephthalamide or just call it kevlar, thing is... we love it!!!!

Can you say it several times and very very fast? :D

Reference: ZP-1007-GTO-3445GT

All paints are pre-thinned for airbrush use, to a consistency suitable for airbrushes with nozzle sizes of 0.3mm upwards. It is NOT recommended to overthin the paint: mixing too much thinner will increase the chance of the paint becoming too hot during application, thus affecting/melting the plastic below the primer.
