Topics I've Started

Grigio Medio Enzo

11 November 2014 - 01:57 PM

I have an FXX Id like to build (in red) so I thought Id do a dry run with the standard Enzo kit first just to see how it goes together.

There are no Grigio Medio Enzos (yet?). But I thought it would look good since the 458 and 430s Ive seen look nice. I used Ocean Gray as a facsimile. Ive already started painting and assembling the body.

I used cigarette foil for the heat shield material.

I know the interior should be carbon fiber from the factory, but I decided to carpet it with some old Testors tan that dries dead flat and coarse.
To complement the tan I went with a Chamois color for the upholstery.

Straight out-of-the-box; done in a little over a weeks’ time.

The body was cleaned up and the panel lines scribed a little deeper and the two piece hood was cemented together and the resulting joints were filled before priming.

Bone stock out-of-the-box. Except for the license plate decals. Mica Blue, from the can, no clear. Fun and easy and very enjoyable little build.

Subaru WRX STi

I picked this kit up several years ago, when these cars/kits were very popular. I almost built it many times over the last decade, but each time put it on the back burner due to different reasons.
I decided now or never is the time, and I wanted to paint something blue.

Once I cleaned up the mold lines and scribed the panel lines a little deeper, I primed the body with gray Tamiya primer, re-sanded and then put a base coat of Tamiya Intermediate Blue.

The wheels and calipers came pre-painted gold, but not on the back side, so I shot a coat of gold on the back to cover up the blue plastic while they were still on the sprue.

I shot the single piece chassis with the same base and color blues as the body will get, and then proceeded with the hand painting of silver and black as well as some washes mixed from black, smoke and earth.
