just built my audi r8. this was such a frustrating build. first i used tamiya lacquer paints for the first time ever... im usually used to enamel. well, the paint was incredible! drying so fast, and not dripping everywhere. no primer, but it turned out good for what im used to, and the color is what i wanted. paint was really good until i had to complete this rotten model.
pieces didnt fit well. headlights were too big for the front a little bit. the engine-window-hinge-doo-hickey was odd, and directions sucked at explaining how to properly fit it.. glue bombed that whole area. windows didnt fit right, and i got glue all over those as well.. (the car is even missing one window. im gonna tear the other one off) the body didnt even fit on the chassis together completely. the wheels dont have a great stance. the decals for some reason wouldnt ever stay on the car. the mesh included was horrible to work with.
the part that DID come out very well, was the interior. my lines and pin-striping looks fairly decent, but i couldnt get a great shot. infact none of the pics are that great, it was all with my iphone.... i wish i could learn how to glue less though. how do you guys build a model, without getting any smudges, or glue-fingerprints everywhere!?!?!?
car looks really good in this pic!!!
