    Looks great! If you don't mind me asking...Where did you get your CF decals at?

    Round Styrene Width HELP
    Hi, I'm trying to build a custom rollcage in my 1/24 scale car. I need to order some round Styrene and I was wondering what diameter would be the best size (to match the scale?)

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    -Kyle

    It's by "VIVA" and it's their Precious Metal Color line. My fiance' had it for an art project for her class. Turquoise is the color.

    haha, yeah. I used the same color on some of the bracing on the chasis to simulate Cusco products as well.
    I agree, some decals in silver would be awesome.

    2005 Subaru STI Rally to Street
    This is my first build in about 10 years and my first Tamiya. (The quality is phenomenal!) I chose the Rally over the standard version, because of the extra little details and the ability to make this a "Hard Parker." I haven't chose a color for the body yet, but I've been tossing around the idea of Pearl White. Below are some pics of the progress:



    The Chassis is mainly done minus a few extra little details.





    A little mock-up..


    Finally the wheels that will be going on the car: BBS LM's (Aoshima)


    Big thanks to Steve (Steven Zimmerman) for selling these wheels to me, they're going to really make the STI come together!

    Stay tuned for more updates!

    The problem even with Ferrari's and Lamborghini's is the person doing the polishing job. I frequent autopia.org (a detailing forum) and see numerous paint jobs on exotics that have buffer trails, etc.

    I read a post somewhere about some wheels requiring metal axles I believe. But I'm sure any wheel can be modified to fit.

    Fuijimi or Aoshima Wheels?
    Looking to purchase a set of BBS LM's from either Fuijimi or Aoshima. My question is which company makes the more realistic wheel?
