Been a while but I built this recently as box stock. I must mention on how impressed I am with the Tamiya kit fit and finish, both top rate making this build less frustrating. There were tons of small parts to paint and detail, but I thought it came out looking pretty cool.......

Thanks for posting. It looks great.
I have one to build, but, not the clear.

I am however working on a Tamiya Williams F1 with clear body. I was going to try to sand and polish out the numerous little circle mold marks. After studying yours, I see no need for that misery. I think a gentle cleaning and some FUTURE wax should work just fine.

What steps did you take on the body, if any?

Yeah man..Tamiya models are the best I have built. Have done several and still have more to build. Luckily I just retired.

I am semi-retired myself and eyesight is going :blink: ....lots of detail painting made me appreciate the fit of the parts, lots of work but I love the results!

 

The only thing that I did in the way of body work was to give the clear body a coat of future before beginning and another after the decals were on, that's it!

 

Clear as glass and shows off the time I tool to paint the details. Although the photos reflect the light so as not to show the details, here are the engine assembly b4 as well as body before decaling.
