A simple build just to take some stress out of building big 1/12 kits. Very good kit, not much clean up needed and casting is typical Tamiya excellent with crisp details. Another impressive piece is the dash itself. Almost done, but just need to do the part of the car and the seats.

yes, this is a simple build because I am not really doing that much detail on it. This car will also be weathered to make it look like it is being used for a few years. So not even going to polish the paint and have some orange peel on it to make it look like currently water base paint finish.  At least I finally got the front end painted now, so at least the car is color matched.

a bit more progress on it. Basically complete the build of the car except the seat. But need to do some wiring under the hood and some weathering on the chassis too.
