    That's a great idea! I'll give it a go.
    It's weird, isn't it...how some paint looks better to the eye than to a camera?
     Under more diffused light, the paint doesn't look that coarse. 
     
    Thanks for the comments everyone. Like I said, these tuners aren't terribly popular on this forum, but they are very nice to build. 
     I'm changing tack and doing a 41 willys next. The KS Pittman car. It's nice to mix it up and not do the same type of thing too often.

    Evo X: C-West version
    Here's the Aoshima Mitsubishi Evo X, I've been working on for about a month.
    This is my first airbrush paint job and I wish I'd taken the plunge, sooner. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. 
    Box stock, except for the seatbelt clasps and roof decal. I know most of you prefer American iron, but it was a good kit to build my airbrush skills. Anyway, I hope you like it all the same.
    All comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

    A very classy build. Superb work and finish.

    Hi Len
    Tamiya X-24 is clear yellow. Paint the inside of the glass, so it stays shiny and smooth on the outside 👍

    Almost done. The spoiler was going to have a carbon fibre finish, but the decal wrinkled and looks cak.
    I had this problem before, with the same sheet. Setting solution seems to make it worse.
    Anyway, the bulk of it's done. I need to tweak the gap on the leading edge of the hood, though.
    thanks for looking

    You should get a job building kits for the Tamiya catalogue!
    This is the sort of level I aspire to. Really well done. Looks amazing!

    Wow, Jim!
    That paint looks WET! 
    A stunning build of a handsome car.
  8. geetee66 added a post in a topic Lamborghini Aventador : Extra detail   

    Superb!
    Exactly as I would spec it from the factory.
    Super clean, by the looks of it. The diorama with the cutaways on the wall, is a nice touch.
    I hope that dog doesn't cock his leg, on one of the tyres!
  9. geetee66 added a post in a topic Ferrari 250 GTO (11/14) update   

    This is going to be a top-notch build, especially with all the detail goodies!
     I'll be watching your progress with great interest

    Lovely. Tamiya kits are really nice to build and you're doing this one justice.

    I saw a Chapparal at Goodwood festival of speed. 
    Amazing cars. They were very futuristic.
    And they sound awesome!
    Keep us up to date with your progress 👍
  12. geetee66 added a post in a topic Series 1 Jaguar XKE rebuild - Done....well, almost   

    Yeah, good wheel choice. 
    Nice to see an old kit getting a rebirth. I'll be checking out the progress on this.
  13. geetee66 added a post in a topic Li'l Gypsy Wagon   

    Excellent use of the jewellery parts!
    The earring butterflies, as hinges, for example.
    Truly inspired!
    A very enjoyable build. Not just for you, but us, too!

    Styrene dust, filler, saws and files.
    That's real model making!
     I dig it, man!
    looking forward to seeing this one finished

    This is going to be ace!
    I haven't ventured into resin, yet. But seeing what you've got there, makes me want to try it out.
     The photo inspiration, looks like something Larry Watson would've done. I love this style !
    Maybe cut some slots in card and spray through, for a fade edge, then tidy up the outer edges with tape and a few coats of colour, to give the panels definition.
    Or you could just go solid, with a contrasting pinstripe around the panel edges...
    Either way, it deserves a wild paint job
