    That thing looks awesome. Really well done!

    A couple more images to show. I prepped the front end for painting and gave it 3 coats of tamiya light grey primer, next up it will get a couple coats of black then the flip paint! Engine also painted and assembled. The only part you have to glue is the little distributor cap, the rest just pushes in snugly without glue which is always nice.

    Revell VW T1 Camper / Samba Bus
    Hi all, fresh from my completion of the Subaru, I pulled out next in the line of models to get built. This one is going to be intended as a gift to someone who is a big fan of VW Campers, and I'm going to try shooting it with some slightly interesting paint (first time using an airbrush too). I'm aware for a second go it's very ambitious, but we all need to be challenged, right?
    I've opted for Zero paints ZP-4032 which is a green-purple flip. I think I'll keep the rest of the colour scheme in line with the box art/as revell intended mostly. 
    I tried painting the whitewalls on the tyres as per the instructions, but that seems to be an express ticket to insanity. I might look into decals, but at the moment I'm quite happy how they look unpainted.
     
    Thanks for looking

    Thanks I like to do things the hard way! I didn't in the end and most went on no problem, it's just the curved surfaces that struggle to mate up properly. I have a couple more race cars to do with plenty more decals so I'll give the solutions a go next time!

    Thanks guys I love the colour combo on this car, the contrast works really well I think. 
    Well, After a bit of fun and games last night, all the stickers are on (apart from the ones which seem to have magically disappeared during the move) and my first proper foray into scale modelling is pretty much complete. I need to get the shell sitting better on the body but I'll worry about that later, it still looks fine for all intents and purposes how I have it. The 2 Pirelli stickers on the front bumper aren't taking to the curves very well so I might relocate them if I can't get them to stay in place, no big deal.

    I'm just up the road from Alconbury and Upwood, we do still see some imported "Yank tanks" driving about taking up the whole road  
    Build looks good, looks like it's going together nicely!

    Awesome work so far - looking forward to seeing that italian red go on!

    Yeah, that too, I'm just snapping with a Galaxy S6, so unless lighting is perfect it will always be a bit dark and grainy. I've got myself an airbrush now so I'm hoping I'll get better finishes from now on at least! 
    I know that feeling with the decal tear - same happened to me on a bucket seat trying to sit it right and get bubbles out. Hopefully you'll get it looking right, I'm sure you will!

    Ha! Same as my scoob. Maybe it's just the lighting but it looks a lot more vibrant, definitely a better finish!

    Insane paint skills. What colour is the main body? I love a good electric blue.

    To be honest, I'm happy to take that advice! It seems like it's gonna be a pain to fit right, and with some persuasion I've managed to get it snapped into place pretty securely a couple of times.
