    I have bought the RS2000 1:43 VA09527 and I would like to recreate my old car.Click image for larger version Name:	DAD 422K - Copy.jpg Views:	63 Size:	79.0 KB ID:	87324

    So, what is the best way to paint the bonnet satin black and recreate the plate?

    Mask off the bonnet and spray black from a rattle can. You can buy clear decal sheets (probably on eBay) and print the lettering on a colour printer. You can do the number plate the same way. I have done scale number plates with a letra set, but they never look right. Share some pics if you do it.
