    I really like the use of the silhouette cutter. Please tell us more about using it. This got me thinking about buying one. Amazon sells it at 149$.

    I made bunch of those shifter knobs from clear styrene rods. Used drill as lathe. Some "machining" with hobby knife and sanding stick. Then polish and paint. I tried to find part trees with air bubbles inside to mimic the stuff that real knobs have inside.

    I did those with Crazy Modeler's Nissan metal decals as stencil.

    It's like it's suppose to be. It's something what japanese tuning shops do. I don't know why.

    Toyota Celsior GRS182
    I painted this Aoshima Celsior with Zero paint Ferrari colour, changed the rims and made radio antenna exhaust tips. Rear wing is from MCR 350Z and has Tamiya uprights.

    Nice work. You could add hoseclamps on top of the intakeplenum. You can see those in reference photos.

    This is how i have arranged my tools and paints. On the left side of picture is the main working area and all the tools and paints are on the right. Wooden drawers, magnetic holder, spinning tray and metallic "racks" are from Ikea.

    Yes, I used Tamiya Clear Orange for the wheels. When air brushing orange, after first pass, it looked like gold. After couple more layers it turned to orange. I intend to try more painting rims with clear colors and try mixing red, yellow, orange, blue, green clears.
    I don't mind nit picking. Nice to hear some feedback. That fuel injection was made for different sort of engine. I don't know what engine it belongs.

    Injection system is built by using some Hilborn style throttle bodies. Then I added some wiring and fuel lines. Intake runners are basic electric wire ferrules. Just cut to lenght and remove plastic part. Lifter valley cover is cutted from pill strip. They have interesting patters.

    Chevrolet Impala 1963
    Revell's Impala. I changed the engine to 409 with individual throttle bodies. Also some photoetch used. Wheels and tyres are made by Testors.

    Here is how I did the paint. One and a half roll of 0,7mm tape used. Three layers of paint. Taping after every layer.
