I happened  upon this thread too late to join in (even if I had caught it earlier I have no way to post any pics) but the link to the BMW 320 pics will be helpful when I commence building the ESCI 320 Group 5 kit that I recently found for $8 at a toy show.

Next car on list, Aoshima RX7 Daytona 24 Hrs.  Based on battery powered chassis so not much detail.  Nice looking body.  Have painted window trim and interior black.  Started to add decals.  Got to figure out if headlights are going to raise up or not.  If they do raise and lower, then I've got to figure out cutting decals for them.  On to the pictures one of theses days. Stupid photobucket isn't working correctly.  Will post pics when I get it working.

Unfortunately,that RX-7 kit is nowhere near a racing car kit.It's just a street car with the race car flares,wheels, and decals in it.Makes a good slot car body though.

You get no argument from me on that point.  Box pictures look good, but as I said in prior post, old battery powered kit.  Will get this finished and either a Trans Am Camaro/Mustang or Porsche GT1 up next.

That's a lovely looking RX7.

 

Couple test decals, windows and a rough mockup.

Since the interior is ruined/scrapped, I've decided to just smoke the windows. This once fully detailed car I had planned is now an extreme Curbside: No engine detail and no interior detail. 

 

That left me with the exterior. I'm using Scale Motorsport Flying Lizard decals. There are at almost 60 decals to complete the livery. Decals are applied in numerical order per the instructions. There is a application guide, but I recommend using pictures from the internet as backup, as the directions are extremely complex. So far I've applied 27 decals, and it's taken around 6 hours of work. Once I'm done, the entire body minus windows will be cleared.

Man Arnold! That is looking just awesome.

 

My decals were not behaving well on the rear quarters in front of the rear wheels and on the roof near the rain gutter channel.

 

Yours look great!!

 

Tomo, that Skyline is looking amazing as well! Great job guys!

Getting closer to finishing the decals. I've applied 61 decals and have approximately 30 more to go.
