Well gents, I finally got around to taking a couple pictures. Here's what I'm building: And I'm using this PE set from Hobby Design. This and several other parts for future builds arrived from Hong Kong yesterday, and I ordered it last Thursday, talk about fast delivery! Underside of the car so far: I have to tape off the painted bits and hit the remainder of the underbody with the custom Model Master Insignia Blue/Chrome Silver paint I'm not thrilled with this piece. I didn't get the paint thin enough on the first go round and it has a crinkled, spattered look to it. Lesson learned for next build. suspension pieces getting primed: I've removed several mold lines from the corners of the car and given her a two mist coats of grey and white primer. Then I wet sanded the body to remove any dust that the wet primer attracted. I used a few dental tools to deepen the panel lines, mainly the doors and trunk (where the largest gaps would be). And this is the color that I think gets close to Tamiya's instructions for Deep Marine Blue: It's simply enamel Model Master Insignia Blue mixed with Chrome Silver at a 14:1 ratio. I have yet to test it and I suspect I will have to add more Blue, most likely to a 25:1 ratio.
