Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli: F333 SP Gulf custom livery

There is no orange paint for cars or primitives in Ferrari Challenge. Therefore I changed the colour to red and hope to evoke the classic Gulf livery rather than accurately duplicate it.

As there are no small letters in Ferrari Challenge’s vinyl editor, the “u” of Gulf used a capital U shrunk down and required two to generate thickness.

Pirelli’s logos on the front wheel arches was created by placing the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli logo and masking out the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo bit. You can see the white background of the original logo inside the P and R of Pirelli but, especially in motion, you’d never notice it.

After that was complete and I was happy, I twigged that there was an orange racing stripe (on page 2) and set about replacing the red with orange. It was a bit fiddly but it resulted in a more accurate Gulf livery. This also had an effect on another paint job I was doing with a Jota Sport 575 GTC which I’ll post later.

As a bonus, the car was great fun to drive.
