Well after nearly 4 months of waiting I finally got the Klein back from the painters..
I went for the Horizon linear fade..
I know the decals arent 100% right but whats the opinion?
The Mission Control on the right is the one used to colour match..

Looks good for a respray.

'Pop' on the colour looks excellent. Fade looks good but would need to see an identical frame for comparision.

Are the decals laquered?

Agree - it does look a very professional job for a respray. Well done. And well done Argos.

The colours look dead on but the fades not really as well done as the original - it would have been incredibly difficult to get a real good accurate iteration achieved as you went with a little bit of an impossible challenge. You can tell is not a "proper original" one - and obviously the decals are off a little. But looks real nice anyway.

I think overall though its a great job done and definelty looks great anyway. :)

BTW the fades between the colours are spot on its just the camera dont pick it up! Kinda looks like three colours...

i like it ! its a very nice re-spray but as you asked for an opinion i dont think the fade between the two colours overlaps as much as the original. allthough as you say it might just be a camera/picture thing. but i do really like it. nice job !!!
