    GT40 is finished, but I'm not happy with the way it turned out. This kit, at least for me, was a nightmare. It'll look good on the shelf, but it really fell short of how I wanted it to look.

    How about list it as say...$30 for both the model and the motor. That way you have some plenty of room to add paint. Sound fair?




    I think to keep it even, I'd have to say count it as $3.


    I'll be posting mine up this evening hopefully

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!

    I totally agree with you, the JPS is one of my all time favorites behind the Day Glow Orange Mclarens. Just gives me goosebumps In fact I have already decided to eventually pick up another one of these kits and make the JPS 98T

    Edit: That's interesting. I didn't know that about the Camel decals. I guess my kit must have been an older version because mine also had both sets.

    Exactly. We were going to count the true cost of paint towards the budget, but with primer, paint, clear, etc, it would eat up that $50 pretty quickly, so we capped it.

    Lol I should stop using my phone to post. Darn autocorrect!
  7. TheDocktor40 added a post in a topic Budget Build Community Challenge   

    That's why paint is at a set price for this. Paint for us is the same actual price, but to allow the paint to fit into the budget but not take up too much of your budget, the prices are set at an assumed 3 for cans and 1.50 for bottles.

    For example:

    I buy Tamiya black, tamiya blue, and tamiya red spray for $7 each for a total of $21. But for this challenge, that will add up to $3 each for a total of $9.

    Hope that makes more sense.

    Donnie: we'll try to come up with something so you can use that kit. As far as paints go; newly purchased, or left over paint is calculated the same way, with spray being $3 and bottles being $1.50

    Boswell: its up to you. If you can find 2 kits and supplies under budget, go for it. Im only using 1 kit because if my paint costs, so whatever works for you.

    Thanks guys

    It's my first since probably junior high, so about 10 years . And I wasn't exactly doing my best at the time lol

    Jantrix, I understand where you are coming from, but the three of us are just getting into or getting back into the hobby. We realize this isn't much of a challenge to most of the guys here, but to us, it most certainly is. We don't have the bins full of parts, and plenty of leftover paint. We are just starting out and figured we'd challenge each other to get better in a way that is conducive to our situation, and we decided to open it up to anyone who wants to join us in.

    Here's a little more F1 love. Finished this a few nights ago. This is my first model I've built since I was a kid, and I think it turned out well.

    Looks fantastic man! Love the old F1 cars. I'll have to add a 312 to my list of cars to do.

    Um ya, I think we should probably tweek that rule about the recipts to make it easier for everyone. Personally, mine came off eBay, so the closest thing to a recipt I could get would be to maybe take a screen shot or something.

    Looks like I'll have to make my list sometime this evening
