all i have now is the first primer coat and some issues to point out.
the kit looks great. it has almost 100 peices and is well designed.
first there was some long mold lines that ran down the fenders all the way back to the rear 1/4's and down to the bumpers.
second the kit has some serious sink marks here
and on both sides here
i will putty them after i sleep and get back withthe pre pAint pics

Looks like a very nice kit. Like what you have done so far. It should look really cool in Green.

Let me start this off by saying this build is a train wreck Out of the gate. The chassis in in the pond and i think the body is heading that way.
I got a few fish eyes in the re-paint after i had to sand out some trash.
Now i have to sand out that. Errrrrrrgh. Add to that i hate enamel paints. It takes 3 days in the dehydrator before i can even sand. I think im about to give up on them.
Also. This is some valuable info on this kit
1. The hood is a tight fit. If you lay paint on thick, it will not fit
2. Same thing with the rear c post. If you paint the car body and the post, it wont fit

The gray strip that came with the kit is not dark enough.
Got this one off ebay. I love ebay.
I may have to paint the top black. This green color will quickly over power a build. That goes for 1:1's too
The black strip may do the job

The green is a nice change. My kit did not have those sink marks fortunately. Looking forward to more of your progress.

Man, that color looks good on this! I kind of liked the grey stripe myself, but the black will look good on it for sure!

Black is so over done. Looks killer the way you have it.

I went with gloss black tamyia x1, simigloss black X18 and flowquil grimmy black
And in classic form, i lost the radio face plate. Im going to try and make one.

It was a lot harder than i thought
These things agravated me to death. Good news was there were 6 on each head not the normal 4
I added some MAF sensor wires too

Aw, I was loving that grey stripe, but it's definitely too light.
Also, thanks for pointing out those dents in the body, now I understand why I see patches of putty all over WIPs (new guy here haha)
