  1. Cheers Codi I would use photo etch buckles, but didn't have any 1/16 scale ones....it is bit weird of a scale apparently. So I had to make do with what I had. As many a true Canadian can attest, we are born with hockey tape wrapped around the umbilical chord, so it's multifaceted use comes second nature
  2. Thank you very much for the kind comments and for looking in on this build The blue going over will be Tamiya's Clear blue...probably three light coats at least. Then a 2k clear with Splash. I have just finished my Gravity 2k clear which worked well but won't order more from Spain until this virus craziness blows over. If you ask why not use Gravity USA paints, you have not dealt with the owner.
  3. Thanks Bruce for looking in Just holding off on final blue paint Weather has been crappy and now back to work. Hopefully this weekend will pan out well for spraying. I also want to test out the 2k from Splash on something so I stated a Ducati Panigale.
  4. Both seats done now Watch parts used for connection point of the four part harness lets this click together. Kinda cool feel.
  5. Seatbelts today. Nothing in 1/16 scale so had to make my own
  6. Deviated from paint for a bit and did more engine work. Glossy black air boxes were installed. They have no purpose in the model...no hoses no hook up and look like mailboxes. Research shows these boxes are the air filter intakes for the turbos. So I made some pipes by bending a thick copper electrical wire coated with plastic. It was the best material for the job as aluminum broke, styrene would not take the complex curves and brass would not budge for me without huge dents in the tube. Bent the electrical wire to fit and added some black styrene tube to accept the pipe in the base of the ‘mailboxes’ a bit of detailing for hose clamps Installed Finished with some black mesh over the mailbox’s intake opening. Good morning’s worth of modelling
  7. Ahh I can see this kit is much nicer than the 1/16 Fujimi I was considering Good to know, dodged a bullet
  8. Cheers guys, the next step is coming up..... chromed
  9. So far so good. Clear parts/ windows are where the Fujimi 288GTO let me down. So far this is ok fitment
  10. Cheers Bruce, hope you are keeping well
  11. Last unspoiled views of the insides as the body shell will cover most of this up
  12. Body was primed white and now based black Alclad before chromed Spoon on the left is where we are headed
