OK. I guess I will just repost everything up to now.
The engine received the first round of wiring and plumbing
After all the pieces for the body panels were glued together, all the seams were filled with Tamiya grey putty, sanded and then everything was sprayed with a coat of 2K primer. Once dry, everything was sanded smooth and then sprayed with Ferrari PPG NART blue.
After drying for a day, the body panels were masked to leave the roof and some of the front exposed, pretty much like what the instructions show to leave black.
Except I am not leaving it black. I sprayed it Lamborghini Hera blue. On the pictures it looks pretty much the same. But the two blues will look completely different once clear coated. They are both metallics, but the NART has A LOT of silver in it. The Hera is a lot finer and somewhat darker once cleared.
