You are right about the decals Tomo...  It is the exact reason why I didn't do it in Castrol livery the first time around.

 

Jim which of the Le Mans versions do you have the Denso Zard in White/Red or the Denso Black/Red...  Or the PlayStation in Silver/Yellow? 

Red and white Denso Zard. I've not built the kit yet as I need to come up with another pair of the fender louver pieces contained in the kit as they are located on the rear fenders as well.

Jim, I have extras of the fender trims (Assuming is the same body)...   If you need them they are yours.

I can always use extra fender flairs. Thanks. What I need though are the narrow louvers that were included in the kit. I'll try to post a picture of what I am referring to over the course of the week end.

Actually, they do go on the hood. A second pair is needed for the lower rear quarter panels. Here are the parts needed, B tree 25:

And here is the instruction sheet and the aftermarket decals for the Le Mans entry:

Myself, Juan, John, Tomo , all have the same taste in car's,  I have been debating about starting a race car community build thread,  but I was not sure if there was going to be a lot of interest, but I think I am going to get that started now


Great idea!

We really need to get the ball rolling with the Gran Turismo Race Car CPB...  I believe we need a hand full more of people to get it going.

 

Worked a little last night:

You guys need to see this one:

 

Is the construction of the smallest V12 engine , the viedeo is in Spanish because it was manufactured by Motores Patelo but is truly a work of art.

:lol: Oscar :lol: ....

 

The blue engine was "the Japanese thing" back in the mid 90's, engines like the B20's were mostly Blue with Red tops (Hondas and Acuras as well).

 

I also did a little bit of Carbon earlier today to give it a little more detail

I must have mised that trend.  I've seen a few Honda engine blocks painted something other than aluminum. Valve covers have run the gamut of styles from crinkle to small murals.  Maybe I was too far in the motorsports end of rice, lol.

I think it was more of a Street Import thing...  Back in 2006 I restored a Honda Civic from the ground up, bought two Acura Type R engines in Hong Kong and when they arrived both had Blue blocks with Red V Tech covers...   Doing some research on the rebuild most of the photos we could find had blue engines  :P

 

Here:

A link to the full resto (Including two complete paint jobs), can be seen here

 

I also felt like doing some Origami  :lol:

I think even with the primer the finish is going to be too soft, so I will let these dry and see how it works...  If not, I will just make the whole thing white.
