    Different shades of black for various parts like a flat black to represent cloth on seats semi gloss on leather/vynil (a little glossier for vynil) gloss on hard plastic pieces, and don't forget to detail paint and use foil for shiney metal bitsbits.  
     
    Look for reference pics on Google or simply follow kit instructions if you aren't up to the task of extensive paint detailing.

    well, I guess I'll be going with another type of wheel for this one.  I'd really like to find some BBS RG in 15", but that's never gonna happen. 
     
    I ended up finding a set of wheels from a late 80s Dodge Daytona and tires from an old AMT Blueprinter Datsun 240Z.

    LOW profile tires
    Hello, all!  I am in need of assistance finding some tires for some Fujimi "BBS 17inch SILVER RIM" wheels.  You see the tires that come in the wheel set are too tall for my VW rabbit kit and I would like some much lower profile tires for the rims.  here's a link to HLJ to show the box:  http://www.hlj.com/product/FUJ19153/Aut  Now as you can see, the rims look great on the car, but the tires are way too big:


     
    and just in case you all wanted to see the whole body painted brown

     
    any help sourcing a set of tires would be greatly appreciated.  I have a set of Pegasus 17" tires, but they're closer to 19" compared to fujimi or maybe the difference in scale.  Anyway, they're too big.

    It very well may have been, and that would explain why I haven't seen any info on the AMT kit.  lol  Maybe I just saw "Ranger" and instantly got my hopes up.  I've been wanting to get a few more of them so I can finish a couple projects I have had going for about 13 years now.  hahaha

    AMT Ranger reissue?
    I was at Hobby Lobby the other day and in the empty slots with fresh stock decals I noticed one that said AMT Ranger!  This is good news, if in fact it's going to be the AMT 95-up Ranger kit.  
     
    My question is...Is AMT reissuing the Ford Ranger?  I have seen absolutely zero info on it.  Round 2 doesn't have it in their flier in the "Crew Chief" kit I bought.
     
    I understand  google can help me here, but I want to have a conversation about it!  haha

    If you were to paint it red and use the wheels from the Aoshima Veilside s15 (daggers) and source the proper decals for the sides, you could effortlessly build Dom' Turretto's FD from The Fast and the Furious (the first one).

    I am quite eager to see this with all the chrome and radical engine finally put together.

    I just hate that I don't have access to a band saw and a router.  If I did, I'd have all SORTS of organizing shelves, stands and what not.  These are really nice and prices look good too.  I'll be waiting to see you guy's reviews before I decide if it's for me, or if I should just build a wood shop so I can build a model building shop.  LOL!

    wow, now I feel really smart.  lol
    words tell things?  when did that start happening?  hahaha
    I'm a picture looker.  lol
     
    I still think it looks good!

    RIGHT ON, MAN!
    A while back, there was a thread asking if there was a 1:1 car built with a model as its inspiration (or something like that).  If I had an IH scout, I would be in the garage cutting frame at this very moment because of this build!

    I love the way this is going.  The valve covers seem to be awkwardly positioned, I think something might be installed improperly.  Is it possible the cylinder heads are on backwards?  Like the intake side was inadvertently placed where the exhaust should go.
    Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see how this turns out.  The colors look great and your photography is really well done.
