    Thanks that is really understandable, I was really worried that you would say BMF, I struggle with it thanks anyway! good tip with the diluted red  though

    Wow, this build is great, I like the wash in the door and bit lines.

    Well I still struggle with all my builds, especially the finish on the body's. 
    Anyhow, I really like this car and your build is top notch. 
     
    One question tho, did you make a mask for the seats? If not, how did you get such a crisp line between the black  and red? Cheers buddy!

    hanks for the kind comments!So the original reason this got shelved is that the paint work did not go so well.
    First time I had tried to use Zero Paints 2K clear.
    I was spraying over Tamiya Red from an aerosol can (it was left for 2 weeks to dry)
    It turns out that the recommended 15% thinner doesn't work, since I have used 40 to 50% thinner, and this stuff sprays really well. But it takes so long to spray, I find that the 2K starts to go-off in the airbrush after the 3rd coat. Anyway, the paint finish was awful, as seen in the photos, I spent (on & off) a couple of months sanding it out - which is where I am today, I have recently masked off a few areas to re-spray - I had some of that Tamiya red left in the can, they are in inconspicuous areas, so I will give it a light dusting...
    When it's dry, I'll start to finish up, I'm still undecided as to whether to cut out the door sides...

     
    Re-spay is here - where I had burned through the finish coats:

    you can try a bit of varnish or clear paint to stick the emblems, but the build looks great to me...

    Great build! I've never seen one of these before, in real life, or as a kit, and I kind of like the colour combo too.

    Interior finished.
    I used "the model car garage" PE bezels for the gauges.
    I wanted to cut out the door sides & add seat belts, but ran out of patience and time... I might still do it, depending on how it looks when I mock up the body.

    2 weeks ago I finished the body... or I thought I had.
    It was sprayed with nail polish heavily diluted with Tamiya lacquer.
    Then left for a few weeks & finished with Zero paints 2K clear.
    There were 3 or 4 dust spots, and so I thought I'd use a sanding regime on just those areas, looks like I'm going to rub out & polish the whole car.
    the un polished look was probably good enough, but uneven in some key areas & I wanted to get rid of the dust...
