  2. CT, your detail and overall build is outstanding it really has that SO-CAL / salt flats look. this is wicked cool! jason
  3. Francis, the amount of skill you have into this build is just amazing. your atention to detail is remarkable. a true craftsman. always look forward to your progress as it inspires me and others to build. jason
  4. thank you for all the wonderful comments everyone! I made a jig to make control arms so they match. will also use it on future builds. after a control arm was made I made a few mounting points and set it up to see the result. still need to make more mounting points and the other control arm. most likely a plate for the middle of the arm too.

  12. steve, from what I know they are painted a basic color like white or grey then the livelry is a vinyl wrap. the weathering on the inside and chassis was done with weathering power. I used grey and black powder lightly brushing it across the surface then blew off the excess. added a little at a time until I was happy. thank you for your comment and I hope this helps!
  13. tamiya mustang GT-4 finished. this kit was really nice and fun to build some nice detailing and some plumbing really makes it. I have forgotten to sand the tires though so I'll have to fix that. but I've already purchased another kit to build and might have to get more. it seemed to just fall together awesome kit dindt use the kit carbon fiber as I wanted to do the front splitter and canards so I used scale motorsports carbon fiber so everything matched thanks for lookin!
