    Fantastic work. I really like the finished look of this car and you've described the kit perfectly for what it is to start with and what it can be built into.

    You've done a great job building this kit and it represents the GT40 very well.

    Looking fantastic. The more you build the more I see what I forgot to do to mine.

    Really a great result on this build.

    Looking fantastic. Nice and clean. Great job on the rear engine cover.

    Fantastic work on this build. Great job getting those headers to fit. I never could figure that out and it's probably my biggest disappointment in my build of the car. Your wheels and tires look awesome. Looking forward to more of your work on this beautiful car.

    Great job on the kit seats. You really brought them to life given what they are to start with. I love that idea of softening the plastic to create that "sunken in / sat in" look. Great idea!!

    You're off to a great start. Having just completed this model myself I know what a challenge it can be. I also know how rewarding it can be to have a 1/12 scale GT40 on the shelf. Stick with it, you won't be disappointed when you're done.

    Hi cartpix, some of the parts are molded in a translucent tan like color, those parts aren't painted at all. I may have applied a thin wash of Tamiya smoke over them though to dirty them up and add a little realism. However, the driver seat is molded in black. The seat was textured in the same way as all the other parts but had to be painted. After texturing, I painted the seat back with Tamiya White Primer, next I used a wash of Tamiya Desert Yellow over the white primer, last I used a wash of Tamiya Smoke over the desert yellow for a little depth and to add some gloss to the fiberglass look.

    Hi brandolsx, Thanks for the great compliments (thanks to everyone else too). I am still building and have built quite a few kits since this one. Many weren't posted on the forum though. You can see them, if you care to, by clicking on the photobucket link in my signature.

    For those asking about the tutorial. It's actually posted on another forum and due to forum etiquette I hesitate to post a link here. You can search some of the other forms though and probably find it fairly easily. If not, PM me and I'll direct you to it.

    Wow.... thanks Guys. This was a long time ago.

    Anyway, the fiberglass look was achieved by place a small weave clothe, sort of like a wedding veil material on the plastic part then basically brush painting liquid cement over the material, letting it soak through the material, softening the plastic and then pressing the material into the plastic. once the plastic hardens again as the cement dries you'll end up with this texture. It can also be done with those small clothes used to clean eye glasses for a more random texture.

    There is a tutorial on the internet somewhere that I made years ago with photos and descriptions at each step. I'll see if I can locate it and post it here.

    Fantastic! The various level of "chromieness", (yeah, I know it's not a real word) is awesome. Perfect look between aluminum and chrome.

    It's looking great. The chassis and engine are fantastic. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed body
