It is a simple kit but it has so much potential for detail you could really go all out with it! Nice job so far cant wait to see more....

I got mine at a Hobby Lobby with the 40 % off coupon. I think it came out to about 34 bucks if I remember right.

I havent used an airbrush but ive used automotive gravity feed guns os I kinda get the idea of it. I think the overspray turned out good. I painted the exhaust in a stainless steel then taped of the clamps and painted them aluminum...Its hard to see but it adds that extra detail.

I used bare metal foil for the heat sheilds. Now just have to put the motor in and the front airdam

Thats all for now
Thanks for looking
