Hi All,

 

I have only started modelling last November, and completed my 5th car yesterday.

 

It's not up to the standard of some of the cars that I see on here, but I am really pleased with it. I used artistic licence on the colour scheme, still saving for an airbrush so this was painted using rattle cans. 

 

Main issue that I had with it was after painting, there seems to be a few mm gaps in the panels, whereas when I dry-fitted them they were fine, maybe a case of putting the paint on a little thick? Something to be mindful of when I paint my next ones.

That looks really sharp, Mark. It reminds me of the Dilophosaurus from Jurassic Park all opened up. ;)

It is at its best with everything open so I wouldn't sweat about the gaps. That looks great.
