Great job on the hood...that looks killer!

 

 Did you pick up the kit in a hobby shop or get it online?

I picked up this kit in a hobby store, I had my eyes on it for the longest time! Just didn't have the money to get it back then.

 

Derek this is a masterpiece, it will no doubt bring a smile to your face every time you walk past it.

 

Great job my friend.

 

Thanks!! really appreciate it~ Everytime I look, I wish I have a real one sitting on my driveway lol

Side panel time!!
This one was the most tricky part IMO. Just have to be careful once you get to the rear wheel fender.

 

For the instructions, just like the hood, follow the number sequence "again" and apply the corresponding decals "again" lol.

I found that when you get to the rear wheel fender, cut a few slots at the end so the decal can sit in the bend properly and not ripping.

 

This is what I got after, I also did both sides.

After everything dried, I used my modeler's knife and cut into the panel lines for the extra realistic look.

 

And here are 2 shots of the whole car covered, without the sponsors.

The sponsor decals are pretty straight forward, but there is one that you'll need to cut into a few pieces.

The one with Enkei RECARO P.MU SYNTIUM BELLOF
On the left side is normal, but once you go over to the right side, you'll need to cut each sponsor separately and place it in reverse order.

I guess FUJIMI was too lazy to printing a flipped side of it :angry:

 

Here's what mine looks like after:

I'll be doing the body accessories next, stay tuned!

Great job on an intense decal . I'm afraid I'd go crazy about half-way through and toss this body against the nearest wall.

Well done Derek !

Thanks Doggie! I almost went crazy after doing the side panels together~ lol, the best way is to do one side of the car per day, so that'll give you a break from it.

 

It just gets better and better!

 

With the sponsors on, the whole car looks awesome, I can't wait till I start on the spoiler and front cannards!!

UPDATE!

 

I sprayed on my X-22 Clear as my clear coat, and while I was waiting for that to dry, I went on to finish the rest of the parts.

 

Here is the front splitter and rear spoiler. I also "carbonized" it to replicate the real one. Hope you guys like it as much as I do right now!!  :rolleyes:
