I got this Lindberg/Model King kit today as a early Birthday Present. It looks very nice kit to me and I bet it can be turned out very nice. With my skills, the end result won't be perfect, but I'm trying my best with it.
I started building today. When I test fitted the kit tires (What I always do first), I realized that they are way too small. But luckily, the solution was easy- I have few packs of Plastic Performance Products' NASCAR tires and wheels, bought from Daytona Beach, Florida. Just next to the Speedway! So I decided to go with them this time.
Also I started the bodywork, a little sanding was required, but not too much anyway. There were only four mold lines, what were easy to remove. Then I sprayed some primer on it. Tomorrow we can see if I can already paint the body... Also I painted all engine parts, tomorrow will start assembling!
This Is The Starting Point.
The Tires Are Really Nice.
