Scale I Build

  1. I finished this Tamiya kit of the Honda Takata Dome NSX on Christmas Eve. You can check out the build thread here: Tamiya Honda Takata Dome NSX - WIP: Other Racing: Road Racing, Land Speed Racers - Model Cars Magazine Forum All information about the build is in the link above. The build took me 80 hours. A lot of that time was in masking and painting. For the body I used Gravity Colors - Spain's Honda Takata Green Effect, Zero Paints' Pure Brilliant White and Tamiya LP-5 Semi-Gloss Black. Other items were shot with AK Interactive Xtreme Metals and Alclads. I used Tamiya's PE set for this car. I could not decide which background I liked the best, the black or the white, so I'll post them both. Let me know what you think!
  2. Up next on my workbench is Tamiya's 2005 Honda Takata Dome NSX. This will not be a pure box stock build nor will it be a super detailed build, somewhere in the middle I guess. I will be using Tamiya's PE set for this car and Gravity Colors - Spain Takata Green. This is one of the models that Tamiya decided to use a metal/diecast chassis plate. I have never built one of these before so we'll see how it goes. Here is what I am starting with. The Gravity Colors - Spain paint is absolutely beautiful in my opinion. I took it to work to show some of my coworkers how nice it was. I was giving it a shake as we were talking about it and it slipped out of my hand. Sigh. My shop smelled good for awhile...lol. I've already placed another order. While I wait for my new bottle of paint to arrive I went ahead and started work on the other bits. Another new one for me is how Tamiya has you make their racing harness. There are decals but I did not want to use them. The PE set has all of the required pieces and this weird vinyl material that you need to cut to 2.4mm wide. I used my Infini cutting mat for this. It took several attempts because this material stretches as it is being cut. Next up will be more interior updates and wheels/rotors.
