    Pretty sure I know what you do, as you like to mention what you have done and do for a living. Hard to judge a person characters online. But I can respect and appreciate the knowledge you have and share to help people out.
    Ah the ole back pain excuse, amazing how many people complain of that. So I guess thats why you can come across as a grump sometimes.
    Nah, im sure anymore I say would be of no use, as you have a vast knowledge of everything and Im sure you will sort yourself out.

    Instead of wasting your valuable time on a forum, maybe you could turn off the computer and go do something in the real world.

    Wankers who have nothing better to do than jibber jabber wasting countless hours on this forum instead of being at their workbench doing something productive with their time. But I guess its easier to talk about building model cars than actually building one.
    Each to their own I guess.

    Outstanding amount of creativity and craftsmanship.

    Rough surface is pebbling, most times it is caused by the paint drying before it lands on the surface.
    Factors that can cause it are:
    Air temperature.
    Shooting to far away from the surface.
    Incorrect ratio of paint to thinner.
    Other possible causes
    With dual actions, too much air not enough paint.
    And too much paint which causes over spray that gets drawn into the airflow then onto the surface of wet paint.

    Aligned/attached the nose the best I could, then spent alot of time filling(with super glue) and sanding.

    Thanks for the comments.
     
    Not really, but it did take a little bit of work though, I removed front inner guards from the body and rear wheel tubs from the chassis and then modified stock suspension to get it lowered. And being that it was built curbside I didnt have to re-build/re-work what was removed.
    Yes, but I donated the engine else where.

    Excellent build mate, always look forward to seeing your newly completed builds as its guaranteed the paint job will be killa and show your creativity and skills when it comes to laying down the paint.

    It was built as a curbside so it has no engine and chassis wasnt detailed just painted matt black.

    As always mate clean build and well detailed, agree with others that the venetians are a great addition and look the part.
