Thanks, guys. A bit more progress today:

I realised that I hadn't painted the Blu Abu Dhabi on the bits of the doors that are not trimmed, so it was out with the masking tape!

The "Privacy Glass" option, in this case applied with Tamiya Smoke, not the payment of several thousand more quids...

I cut away and sanded the door hinge part, so that it clips into place and slots into the body. One didn't work so well, one did better, so it'll be the drivers door that's open in photos! The one above is using the "sloppy" hinge, because I don't want to risk the other one until I use it for real. I'm not sure how long they'll last being clipped and unclipped...

Not a great photo, but it does show the very distinctive "face" of this beastie...
 
bestest,

 Hi, all... I wouldn't normally take pictures in the bright sunlight like this, but since it's "Blu Abu Dhabi", I assume that eye-watering daylight is what it's designed for, and I wanted to see what that might look like in real life. It probably gives the best impression of what the colour is REALLY like -- it seems to change from green to blue in different pictures, depending on the lighting conditions!

...still very much a WIP, but we are getting there, slowly. This marks the point when the chassis and body finally came together, which is always a good milestone!
 
Fingers-crossed, I should have this done this weekend!
 
bestest,
M.

Last few pictures in the WiP. On the home straight now!

Thanks goodness those exhausts are buried...I do wonder why they made them so accurate, and complex, when this is all you can see...

You need to put the black shield under the windscreen in place AFTER the engine goes in. There's no problem... it's a click to fit, press in place part... no need for adhesive.

...and I think that's about it for this thread.
 
More in the completed gallery... thank you for watching!

OK, I lied.... finishing touches done this evening. Now I just need to clean the fingerprints and dust off it, and get some proper light for beauty shots...
