Completed a trade with Ewan "every second counts".

Great person to deal with.

Awesome! That light bar looks about the same as the kit part so it won't look bad at all. I had a folder in school when I was a kid, just had the Lamborghini police car, no people or other cars.

Those pictures make me want to get another 1/32 sports car and some figures, do a diorama. Anyone make 32nd scale figures?

Suprisingly, this little kit does have the staggered rear wheels. Don't know if they scale out to the proper diameter or width, but they'll be convincing enough on this little car.

 

I just sprayed them silver and gave them a black wash. Wish they came off the tree a little nicer but oh well.

Getting the detail painting done and ready to be sealed down with clear!

Alrighty! where were we?

 

Getting back to this one and making good progress.

 

Going with dark wheels. here they are test fitted with the completed chassis.

I used an old sheet of foil to mask around the widow trim and hood. I like this method but it'd get pretty spendy buying foil just to throw away,

After the trim and hood were painted I taped over all the trim.

I cut ribbon then sprayed it with a little adhesive. I cut it into two pieces at an angle to simulate a cabon weave design.

I laid two sided tape along the sides and front of the hood and put a piece under the vents and along the back of the hood to help hold down the ribbon. Then tucked it along the contours. the adhesive held just enough!

After a light coat of a dark metallic grey I had a nice carbon fiber like pattern. The pattern didn't show up as great in some areas but I think the process yielded a convincing carbon fiber hood.

On to clear coat and polishing. should be finishing the EVO soon!
