OK. The interior is done......stick a fork in it...... YEAY..!!!
First, I tried sanding all of the molded detail from the seats (this is a resin interior by Modelhaus). I was able to remove most of it and then painted the entire bucket, dashboard and steering wheel with Tamiya Dark Earth spray and when that dried I sprayed it all with Tamiya Semi-Gloss Clear. Next I flocked the carpet and rear tray Brown. After that I brushed on some Floquil Depot Buff to the side panels and steering wheel for a little contrast. I glued on strips of PE metal sprue to the side panels for a touch of bling and added PE speaker grilles to the rear tray. A PE piece was also added to the rear of the front passenger seat for the swing out ash tray that was on the real car. I drilled holes for resin door handles and window cranks (by ReplMinCoMD) which I painted chrome silver.
I added PE "foot" pedals to the gas pedal and headlight high beam floor button (I had them in the real Tunaboat). I also added a black painted handle to a piece of a straight pin, which is glued into a small hole drilled in the floor, for an emergency brake release handle that the 1:1 car had.
The dashboard is detailed with BMF and chrome silver paint and a round,flat shirt pin head for a glove box door button. The speedo gauge is from my parts stash and the speedo and other gauges are covered in clear epoxy drops for lenses. A round shirt pin head was added to the steering wheel for a necker knob (which I had on the 1:1 car) and a straight piece of a pin was used for a turn signal lever. A dash mounted mirror finished it all off. Here's how it looks;
I'm pretty pleased with the way this turned out. The real car's interior should only have looked this good.
Thanks for looking in on this. Now back to the rest of the car. We're almost there..!!
