I thought I would build a 'quick curbside' out of the box from Fujimi's kit, but as always I'm getting carried away with adding extra's along the way. Here's a pic of a nice 1:1 Pantera with the kind of look I'm going for. If only I had a set of 1/24 wheels like that.
I've started with Fujimi's recent release. The proportions of this kit are so much better than any I have come across in the past.
I'm also using the PE set from Studio 27.
The first job has been to cut away the moulded in grill mesh on the front and rear - it will be replaced with PE parts from the Studio 27 set.
Curiously, the PE set does not include any door handles. I find raised details like this are hard to work around when polishing out the painted body so I am removing it. I will be adding the door handles back in after the body has been painted and polished.
Nearly ready for paint. Now what colour shall I go for...
