Two weeks!!, I am only going to be gone for 4 days :lol: ;)

Alright time for a small update, starting with the R8
I am calling the interior done, I used Tamyia semi gloss black on the door panels and dash, and walmart flat black on the interior tub and seats, I did flock as well.

Are the a pillars that fragile that it needs support ?, that color really suits the lambo well, and the trim looks great, mask and spray?,

Yes , the A pillars are extremely fragile. The trim was masked and sprayed , I may try sand / polish the over spray after I get back from vacation

Well after 6 days of no bench time, I am back at the work bench , here is what I have done so far.
I clear coated the R8, but its hard to tell, painted the wheels, and started getting the body finished, brakes and wheels backs installed


I am not sure if I want to keep the wheels the color they are, I used Matt aluminum, I was thinking of doing them in black

Thanks mate, it was a move, it sucked, I think trying to get everything unpacked, and settled is going to be harder then the move, still not done yet. I am still trying to get all the model stuff unpacked, and still have to find a place to set up the ole paint box

I am going to try a different color for the wheels, my first plan was black wheels, so may go back to that.

Now that the Audi and Ecto 1 are done, time to work some more on the Etype, I started getting the interior painted, I am going with a tan color, need to get away from the black I always seem to do. I need to get some tan flocking now.
