well i'm managing to overcome the learning curve with the help from some interesting how to articles and forums... so with that said heres my first attempt at scratch building disk brakes... rotors are a kit from model master and the calipers are inner wheel hubs that i quartered and used a dremel tool to shape... i need to either find or make some decals for them... maybe baer or brembo

also managed to finish the dash and wired the tach up... ive flocked the floor pans and need to clean up a bit but you get the picture... gonna scratch some armrest up and i have some headrest to add to the front buckets so the next pic of the interior will be a finished shot before final assembly begins

last but not least is something ive learned that makes older cars look much more realistic and thats blacking out the recessed grill areas...

well didnt have much time today to build but did manage to get the engine bay painted... i know there are some mixed feelings about this but i think i helps add some contrast to the strut tower brace and radiator shroud... plus its gives that look of the fenders being bolted on to something... also managed to snap a mock up... oh and one of the model murderer all wrapped up in her snuggie

haha... yeah decals in kits lately are a joke at best... its a shame really... only other thing i see in the parts is the rear end and exhaust attached... part of the fun of these kits is painting and assembly and they keep taking the assembly part away
