Excellent build. I am currently trying to improve my paint finishing and this is very inspirational to see.

Hey Cruz, I think the whole front window frame is supposed to be covered in aluminum. Have you seen the pictures of the real one? sorry for pointing it out, it's just that you did such a wonderful job on it...

Amazing build! I love it.

I've been undecided about starting the Spyder or the coupe first (converting to GT version) but you've inspired me to go with this :)

I have to admit, the Spyder is engineered a little better with crisper details and better fitment of parts. The 1/1 scale coupe R8 is imho a better looking car but the kit has a few warped parts and some parts that don't fit together too well. It's not that big a deal and it's a good kit too but this will be my first build after 20 or so years and I'm relearning everything.

I'm going to try your technique for doing panel lines as it looks great.

 

Very well done and once again, amazing build!

Great job.  I've done the hard top 3 times but never the drop top.  Going to have to get one of these

Another great paint job Marcos!!

Wheels look great as well, did you tone that outer web down with a wash?

Careful with those headrest mould lines Revell is notorious for.

Awesome build bro

Cheers

The 'spokes' look slightly darker than the center.

Might just be the angle

Love it

Cheers
