Hi.
I'm building this one alongside a few other projects to give me a break. So far I've sprayed the body in the suggested metallic silver put the engine together and flocked the floor. the main reason for building to be honest is to practice my glossy paint work. I'm happier with this one than the Mini I completed a while ago but I've still managed to polish through the paint in places....oh well.

thanks Ted but I fear Tamiya is flattering my ability. its a really funky lil kit it even cam with the inlet trumpets in turned aluminium. Al I've done is slung paint at it and added plug wires.

Hi.
the next bits done. I've mocked up the running gear and faded and dusted it with pastels, pigments and mat varnishes. looking at Google images of the undersides of cars (sad but true) I was surprised how quickly the aluminum casings of diffs and gearboxes oxidized so I've had a go at replicating this with a sponge and grey oils. Nothing is glued on yet but I wanted to get it all blended together before I went any further. I still need to rust up the rear brake drums and that sort of stuff but I'm hoping that she will be on her wheels by the weekend. at that stage the plan is to blend everything with a light pass of very thing grey and to put grease    stains around suspension links and steering components.

Its been a busier week at work than I imagined so progress has been slow. Ive managed to sling together the interior but that's about it so far.

Good news and bad.
all the running gear is assembled and I'm pretty happy with it. I need to make the rear anti roll bar look a bit grimy but that's easily done. yes I know the drum brakes look realy rusty but lets face it they do get in a shocking state on the real thing and the effect is massively toned down when looking through wheel spokes.

whoops pressed the wrong button and posted to soon. The bad news is I dropped the body shell, the wing snapped at the A pillar and there is a huge crack in the paintwork on the wing. I have successfully glued the wing / A pillar joint and reinforced it from the back but I'm not confident it wont break when I twist the floor pan in to place.
To try to restore the finish I've brush painted over the cracks with some of the thicker paint from the bottom of the jar, I will need to leave it a week or so to harden then rub it back and clear it. If its still visible I will attempt to blend in with a light mist coat of the body colour and a few clears and a polish.

In a perverse way I'm quite looking forward to the challenge of an invisible mend as it was all a little to easy to get to this stage, besides it will give me a chance to return to my flying fortress whist the paint hardens.

Sorry for the mishap but it looks like you have it fully under control :-). Very cool car btw. I never have build one but if I do it properly will be a skyline... Probably played too much Gran Turismo on my PS2 lol

Hi.
well the body repairs are looking okayish. You can still see the damage but its not as bad. The paint/clear needs polishing out in the repaired areas but I think leave it a bit longer before I do that.

Great save on the damage Pete, it's hard to see the repair even when I zoomed in. Glad you managed to sort it as its looking really nice mate

Hi Pete.
thanks for that. Call me strange but sometimes I think I enjoy making good something Ive got wrong more than a easy build. I think its the challenge.
