    I am semi-retired myself and eyesight is going ....lots of detail painting made me appreciate the fit of the parts, lots of work but I love the results!

    The only thing that I did in the way of body work was to give the clear body a coat of future before beginning and another after the decals were on, that's it!

    Clear as glass and shows off the time I tool to paint the details. Although the photos reflect the light so as not to show the details, here are the engine assembly b4 as well as body before decaling.

    Tamiya Toyota GT One TS020 "Full View"
    Been a while but I built this recently as box stock. I must mention on how impressed I am with the Tamiya kit fit and finish, both top rate making this build less frustrating. There were tons of small parts to paint and detail, but I thought it came out looking pretty cool.......

    Wow, thanks so much! That was a quick one! It makes it easy cause the kit is molded in "semigloss" black styrene!

    A while back I bought the 1/64 Hot Wheels car and decided to pop on the 1/24 Doyusha kit when I saw one. Here is father and son........

    Tamiya kit paint indicator number question
    I am just getting ready to start a Tamiya Toyota GT-One TS020 Full View kit and was going over the paint instructions. There seems to be a paint indicator missing in the listing of colors to be used on the kit. In the instructions it shows X-18 , but it is not listed anywhere on the paint indicator list. Being as this is my first Tamiya kit, I have no idea what color it should be.....can anyone help??

    Between a stock Revell 57 chevy buildup or a Zinger 57 chevy build up.....while sitting on your desk at work, which one ya think is gonna get more attention as folks walk by?

    Here is my version that I built a few years ago.
    It's just a bit over the edge, but you get the idea of how versatile you can get with this kit!
