  1. Thank you very much. For the wheels I used Spaz Stix mirror chrome. If you paint it with their black lacquer (or really any gloss black) it looks amazing. I use alclad as well but not on these.
  2. I think there are all sorts of possibilities with this kit. I'm gonna try to go a little more on a few things with the next one. The Martini is my favorite livery on about anything out there. They make photoetch stuff plus there's a lot of tanks and reservoirs etc to be scratch built as well. I cut the back off the body but it comes with the nose already separate but I didn't post a pic which I should've, I wish there were more group B kits out there. Thanks for the compliments too.
  3. Wow I'm so glad you guys like it. I've got a couple more of these kits and wish there were more group B kits for sale. Love these and thanks again for the encouragement!!!
  4. I know this is not a modeling issue but how do I delete posts on this site? I can't find a prompt anywhere to delete my posts.

    Wow! Absolutely stunning result. Models like these make me want to my best on every single detail of my builds. Thanks for setting the bar so high. Lol.
  6. It's about done. Few details left to clean up but all together I'm semi content with the final product. Want to do another one with a full detail set though.
  7. Super cool cars and I've always loved the quirkiness of them. You've done an outstanding job with this one. You should be very proud.
  8. that would be great. You sure you don't want me to pay you for them? I'd be glad to. How can I get you my address without posting it on here?
  9. The ones that go over the rear fenders are the ones I had trouble with but I'm afraid they'll all look different if I mixed them up. Thank you for any help.
  10. I need a new decal sheet for the stripes!! Anyone got any ideas???
  11. Finally got something done on the bodywork. Used Tamiya TS-26 white and TS-13 clear with lots of wet sanding with 8000 grit and polishing. It turned out ok I think. I don't typically clear over race car stripes and decals bcuz most aren't on the actual cars.
  12. I go by Wes and I took no offense at all. I appreciate that your that concerned, reminds me of myself actually, bcuz sometimes print doesn't convey tone of voice so things can be misconstrued. I am never too proud to say when someone has surpassed me on a build, I like it bcuz it gives me a goal, something to shoot for. Your work is amazing and we never stop learning so we'll see how this turns out. Thanks again, class can't be faked.
  13. Thanks for the comments. I learned this bcuz I've raced for years and worked on several large race teams over the years but I kinda got my colors wrong. It helps to determine if the brakes are the correct type for the amount of heat the cycle through during heavy use. Hope this helps.
  14. Is it curbside or have you put a motor in it? I saw Tim is busy with some of these too. They look great. Shame nobody will make us an outright new kit to build huh. You made it look beautiful as always.
  15. That's incredible!! I've been looking at for reference and didn't know it was yours. If mine looks half that good I'll be happy. I wish now I'd have found a detail up kit for it. Can you show me a pic of how you put the engine cover together?
  16. thank you very much and I used clear orange from my TamIya acrylics, x-27 I think and tried to make a line very light in pencil and just brushed it on bcuz it won't be seen. Same for the other fluid tanks. Even though it's 1/12 scale it looked very intimidating when I opened the box but with a small amount of extra detailing it looks good when your done.
  17. Thank you very much and I am just now getting started on the bodywork. It's mostly in primer but the rear bonnet/engine cover is going to take some work, lots of filling and sanding to do to make it look one piece. Do you have any pics of yours? I'd love to see it.
