    Ditto!

    Nice job!  Digging the color combo.

    Nice work! Very clean build.   I have the Studio27 decals too. Any issues with them?
    If I were to offer one criticism, its directed towards Gravity Colors, not you. Maybe it just doesn't show from the photos, but its hard to tell that its a tri-coat paint. It seems to lack depth. I note that their Novella Blue is the same...not only does it lack depth, its too dark of a shade.

    Very nice, clean job!  I like the colors too.

    Looking good, though one suggestion: I would have glued the front and rear valences on and filled and sanded the joint lines before priming and painting.

    That's quite a bit of shrinkage!  You should let Plamoz's proprietor know. Maybe there's a way he can fix for future kits. Looking forward to more!

    Scalefinishes?
    Does Jameston respond to emails anymore and has anyone talked to him recently?  He used to be so good at responding, but hasn't responded to 3 of my emails sent over the past 6 months inquiring about a color.

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully Aoshima does keep up the pace with exciting kits.  After all the Lambos and the Pagani, it seems that their focus currently is on Japanese-centric stuff.

    Looks awesome!

    Love the color!
  11. BVC500 added a post in a topic Scale Finishes - Blotchy Paint   

    This has happened to me a couple of times using Scale Finishes, and I thought it was because I unknowingly got a little carried away with too heavy of coats and not letting the coats dry sufficiently in between each other. Easily fixed with a little sanding and very light respray coats.

    Nice work. You also made the Revell wheels look more realistic.

    i don't like the headlights they've chosen to replicate. The headlights on the show/press car and the green car are better looking.

    Cool color combination. Nice work.
