thanks guys, appreciate it. As I seeminly become more of a starter than finisher of builds, here's the progress on Sally and the start of Lightning Mc Queen. Sally being a Porshce 911 GT3, Tamiya kit relatively box stock  plus a little body work.

almost ready for the paint booth now

and Lightning, have started with a 2010 ZR1 corvette. Filling holes he dosen't need

I've done bigger (or worse ,depending on how you look at it) body mods before so will start smoothing him out later on today.

Thanks Carl, Seeing as Sally was motoring along I decided to start on McQueen. First up fill all the un needed holes and vents
DSCF0092_zps9882739a.jpg
DSCF0093_zpsd2d24ef6.jpg
and as his headlights are "just stickers" put the lenses in those too, to blend in so they can be painted over

DSCF0095_zps4e4f48df.jpg
so I rubs the lotion on the McQueen then I rubs it back off (thats body filler for the un knowing :) )then I rubs some more on
DSCF0100_zpsfaa884b0.jpg
and tomorrow I'll rub it off and prime to find any remaining low spots

DSCF0097_zps03aad522.jpg
now I know Sally doesn't actually have any sort of rear spoiler I really couldnt be bothered making up the plate necessary to replace it so I just left it really low. I did say there would be some fudged details along the way :)

Yup, this is definitely the funnest thread on the forum. :)

Nice thing about Sally is you don't have to make many changes to a Porsche to make it look utterly feminine. :wub:

KACHOW !!! That is lookin' good, should do the version of him after the race against Doc, with all the tumblweeds stuck on his hood, or maybe the "Radiator Springs" version with the painted coves, metalflake paint & wide whites, after all most of the ones that are built are just the generic version. Oh yeah there's the one in the three wide finish with Lightnings tongue sticking out to make him longer for the photo finish. (My grandson reminded me of that one by bring all the different Lightning die-casts in for me to look at after he saw the Mater build up.) There is some "striping" in the Merc kit that can be used for Sally's "Tramp Stamp"
