Scale I Build

  1. Hi guys. With my R-33 nearly wrapped up, I'm going to be working on my next model, Tamiya's Aston Martin DBS. However, I'm not only in love with the DBS (and it's evil sister, the DBR9S) but specifically, the Carbon Black Edition. It sported a gorgeous black paint (typically, I HATE black paint jobs, they hide the beauty of the car), special gloss black diamond turned wheels, and enough carbon fiber trim to resink the Titanic. Anyway, away we go! the rims will need cleaning up AND after test fitting the tires, the rims are not only too wide, but they are not big enough for the rubber. There is just a very small gap between rim and tire, it's hardly noticeable, but it does allow some "play" in the tire and rim. SO, I will have to attach a piece of styrene around the rim to widen its diameter. four nasty mold lines dominate the sides of the car. Thankfully, the rear ones run down the B pillar and across the ducktail spoiler, the front ones run down the A pillar and into the headlight assembly. Those'll have to go! and for the PE, Hobby Design. And the whole build: Not pictured is the Scale Motorsport 1/24 twill weave carbon fiber sheets.
