Starting on this one, Fujimi Lamborgini Gallado sportec kit, its a basic kit, it has some photo ech parts and different wheels (I bought because of the wheels ). As for the color, I am thinking either yellow or blue, not sure yet.

I too am still following it. I had to pause on the Lambo for some health issues, then had some other projects to finish up. I have gotten the Lambo back out last week until I had to put the wifey in the hospital for a knee replacement, now am taking care of her and the home !! But wanting to get back on track and try and get it done for the ACME show in nov. !!

Ok guys, I will leave it open for awhile longer, Danny, sorry to hear about the health problems you are your wife are having, but sounds like things are getting better, I am looking forward to seeing the Lambo finished.

I guess I should update, I have been working on the Lambo Gallardo, had to strip and repaint, but its back in paint and clear coat, so on the pics. I also have been working a 2006 Subaru WRX STI kit, but its been fighting me all the way, more on that later.

Wow, that's awesome Jon.
I still watch this thread, but haven't built any foreign cars recently. Have just bought a Maclaren, so hope to start that soon. Trouble is, where I come from it's American cars that are foreign (and my usual builds)!

This is almost done, and the bad luck struck again, I lost a piece for the body, it was the gas cap door that has gone MIA, not sure what I am going to fix this one. The only idea I had wont work.
