I started this beauty a few weeks ago. No, it will not be the Arai version ;) It'll be a street racer ;)

 

A few pics of WIP and some minor mods I've made to it:

Yes, the masking tape pulled off some paint, despite cleaning the body with soap and also alcohol prior to painting...


Adding some paint:

Applied wash to the IC and mounted it:

Yes, I know, I should've turned it around... But this was the only way to mount it in the bumper ;)

 

Undercarriage finished:

Weathered the glasses and made the whipers trails:

20130816_214713_resize_zpsc0f02dec.jpg

 

20130816_214730_resize_zps46b70c14.jpg

 

That's it at the moment. I believe the car should be finished in a week or so. Need to weather the lights, add the licence plate, do some small paint touch-ups, assemble the model and perhaps fix a spot or two here and there ;)

 

To be continued!

Great recovery on the peeled paint Damir, the whole build is looking great! The sticker-bombing of the spoiler was a great idea too!

Thanx, fellas! :D

 

Mike: I was going to put some rust on this car anyway, but the peeled paint helped me decide where I wanna put it... :D
