working on another historic car from tamiya, this time a Alfa GTA. I love old alfa and this kit is also a gem. Build one before. But this time, more details to it. Working under the hood today.

getting most of the car slowly put together. Lots of wiring done under the hood and finish the interior. Painted the dash and steering into wood color.  Since the engine lid of the car is forward, I have to trim the hinges a bit to make it open wider and i also made a proper hood prop, since the it will not stay open. This kit is so accurate that the tolerance in the window and the chassis is spot on, Since I got about 4 layer of paint on the car plus the BMF on, the window doesn't fit properly therefore causing a window to crack. My solution is to cut another window and make it open. Not the best solution but still work. Here are few more picture of the progress.
