    Hate this camera so much

    I found some Testors International Orange in a box so I used that. It looks red in pictures grrrrrr so I tweaked the image. Its a little darker than I wanted, but it's alright.

    Mmmm, dem fender flares haha

    Looks cool, never seen an engine like that either.

    Test fitting the engine, and I use that term loosely because there are no engine mounts on this kit, just a little indentation on the chassis where the engine rests. However, the engine does seem to have cavities for engine mounts...

    Also, please ignore the nasty paintjob on the red parts lol. I'm probably going to paint them gloss orange.

    I don't know if the top is black or dark grey, but dark grey looks really cool.

    Decided on some kind of industrial color scheme, like orange/black/grey/metal, kind of like how Black & Decker drills look like. Maybe some striped "CAUTION" decals, jet exhausts, a giant wing lol

    Some progress, along with a shot of the radiator and underside that I spent an hour drybrushing so they look scraped up, only to have the picture hide all the careful brush strokes

    I like this kit, there's enough little pieces to help me practice painting little things

    '95 Viper [Taking Suggestions!]
    Have this spare kit and have no good idea for what to do with it, any suggestions? (AMT 6550 - Viper RT10)

    Are there any iconic Vipers out there? I don't like making brand new looking models because painting a flawless body is hard, so some kind of junky badass Mad Max type design would be cool.

    So far I sprayed everything with VHT Vinyl Dye as a basecoat and chopped up the trees to make drybrushing easier. Pretty happy that many of the parts are supposed to be black anyway heh

    Base coated with black VHT Vinyl Dye, airbrushed a flat Folk Art Red.

    Nice hood scoop, I had to make one recently so I know how annoying it can be to get it just right lol

    Huh, it figures that now I see a body I really like and it costs $50 lol. Why is it so expensive? Are there any cheaper alternatives for that model, like a non-promo or something?

    Radiator and Battery

    A slightly better shot of the dash, also finished the seat, let me know if something seems off. There's silver trim, like on the gauge bezels, it's just hard to see because of the lighting.

    Started on the little bits, glued to toothpicks, the usual. Again, sorry for the bad pics, I miss my DSLR

    It's Apoxie Sculpt, takes a few hours to harden, great if you need time to work the area.

    The crash bar is assembled, now I just have to sculpt a little and round a few corners.
