Hey guys, it's been awhile since my last post on here. And so, I finally got to start on my 86 project~!!

 

This build has been completed, the link here: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=70093

I haven't done much yet, but started preping the body, chassis, firewall for primer.

I will not be doing anything special to it, just some carbon fiber decals here and there, plus a GT wing.

More to come~

Good luck and please keep us posted. I'll probably never build this kit though I do like the looks of the car.

Looks like a nice build, but I'm not a fan of building curbside models. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Haha, you guys won't be disappointed! I hope..  :P

For now, I got the primer on and will be painting it orange tomorrow.

This is going to be a slow process, and I apologize in advance~

But you guys can see my checklist! lol

Okay, I guess I lied about not doing anything special~ 

I'm aiming this to be a race car like, but not a hardcore one. Just a simple race car, but still clean.

Painted the body orange, and I used my CF decal to stripe it. 

Hope you guys like it~  :lol:

Looks great!  If you don't mind me asking...Where did you get your CF decals at?

Looking good,  I have already built both the Tamiya Toyota/Subaru version, I am starting on the Aoshima version now,  I already like the Aoshima better ;)

Thanks, and I've been wondering, any difference on the Aoshima than the Tamiya ones?

Thanks LAone!

and completed some accessories for my 86, while waiting for the clear coat to dry.
(The wing does come with CF decals, but it sucks. So I painted it instead, plus a clear coat to gloss it up)

I also have some of the chassis done, will be posting more later.

What orange did you use?

 

You are right about the Carbon Fiber decals that comes with the wing set, it sucks , looking good, cant to see it with the wing on it, might give me some ideas :lol:
