In 2018 the TEKNO Autosports team ran a number of different liveries on its ZB Commodore Supercar driven by Jack LeBrocq.
One of the better looking ones was this orange and black Truck Assist version that LeBrocq and team owner Jonathon Webb raced at Sandown and Bathurst.
As far as I’m aware, there were no models produced of any of the 2018 Tekno cars. So, armed with a donor model (Shane van Gisbergen’s Red Bull) and aftermarket decals (Patto’s) I was able to create one.
The decal sheet was, for the most part, reasonably accurate. It represented the car as it was shown at the livery launch and raced at Sandown (some of the signage changed for Bathurst). However, the big issue was the circular orange logos which were made of a composite yellow with tiny red dots to achieve an orange affect. I mixed a custom colour to match, but it would have looked wrong on the main body of the car. I ended up reverting to Tamiya’s orange (with a dash of yellow to help brighten it up) meaning there’s a significant mismatch to the logo.
There was also some incorrect sizings – the JHB (rear quarters) is too large; Tekno (front bar) is too small; driver names (side windows) too large; headlight decals wrong shape (looking more suitable for the VF Commodore), plus a couple of other pretty minor errors.
However, despite these issues, I reckon the overall end result looks ok.
