Thanks postie!

I was a bit disheartened when i opened this McQueen, theres two small chips to the paint. I know a few of you do some custom paint work on these diecasts, i was wondering if there is anything i can do to remedy this? I don't know much about this McQueen release, whether it's real or fake (hopefully not lead paint) ive managed to restore a few knocks to some paint on some fender guitar bodies with good results so im half sure i can do this.

Cheers gang, i can take some better photos tomorrow of the chips

That's just the McQueen from the beginning of Cars 2 ... him and Mater scoot down the tracks on their rims, and get startled by the Galloping Geargrinder.

Thats what i thought when i saw it on ebay, sold by a seller that you recommended to me, funnily enough! I had never seen it anywhere else so i wasnt sure if it was a genuine release or just made from parts. I'm happy with it, just not with the couple of chips. I wonder if i can go into the warhammer store in town and grab a tiny pot of red to fill the chips in

It was in a 2-pack with Mater with No Tires.  I used to use Testors red enamel and a fine detail brush.  When I'd touch up my son's McQueens FWIW.

I'll give it a go, is testors a brand or just a mini test pot type thing?

Yes Testors is a brand here in the U.S. (based here in my home state of Illinois BTW.) They are little model paint pots.  
I think Tamiya is a similar international brand option.  But just your run of the mill fire engine red gloss enamel.  Sorry I 
forgot you're in Oz yeah?
