Why thank you very much!  Just take your time and it will come out great!! Get ready to put in some work on the stripes that are on the bumpers, they are tough to get to lay down right.

You did a great job on this kit. This is a perfect kit for anyone wanting to build their first large scale kit. I built one a few months ago and it was a pleasure to build and I did not have any issues in the building. The one thing I believe is wrong is with the decals is the stripe going down in the back all the way over the black section of the body.  I cut that portion off my decals. I could not find any reference photos that showed the stripe going past where the black section started.

Thank you.

 

Your right the stripe does not go down over the black. I noticed it looked funny after it was done and already dried. I then checked my photos and found that its wrong. Don't know why something as simple as that was over looked in the directions. It will be removed when i black out the insides of the exhaust tips.

Really nice job.  Clean, great looking build.  I really like the under carriage.

Thanks, I mixed that color by hand using Gold, silver and a touch of gunmetal and hand painted it with a brush, no masking. I was following what another member did with there build of this kit. It really    sets the undercarriage off.

it looks good.

 

The stance was already touched on.

 

The only other thing i would do is maybe sand down the tread or dullcoat the tires to make them look more realistic or "used."

 

Good job otherwise!

That black line on the spoiler is actually an integral functioning part of the the spoiler called a "Gurney Flap", on actual car it helps to streamline the body and allow air to flow smoothly past the back of the car creating less disturbance.
So it needs to be left black, on the real car it is a satin black.  My kit  (1/25) calls for it to be painted body color!   I hope this helps someone.

Yeah the decals give you a red decal to go in there, guess they thought it was a brake light. lol  I taped it off on mine and painted it Semi gloss black.

Excellent model! Great color and detail! I wouldn't worry about the "flaws."
