Second of my quick'n fun holiday builds. Take one (cheap) Tamiya 'Tom's Supra' kit; build it straight from the box; swap out the kit decals for the ones' that come with their 911 GT2 kit and, Ta daaaa.... Not everyones cup-of-tea, I know, but I had a shed-load of fun doing it over the last ten days or so, and isn't that really the point of the hobby ?. Feel free to ask any questions or post any outrage, it's all fine with me. Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment. AFN Ian.
So the second holiday project has hit the bench: Tamiya's 'Toms' Supra GT, definitely not going to be finished in the kit-supplied Castrol colours: Tamiya's TS-8 'Italian Red' with AK Xtreme Metals' Polished Aluminium' and some hand painted matt black (first coat only in these photos). The insides are all AK Xtreme Metals' 'Dark Aluminium' but obviously only just started, the cage is glued together but not to the chassis in these pics. Bodyshell is TS-94 'Metallic Grey'. Two light coats and nowhere near shiny enough, so I'll brush on a coat of Klear/Future before decalling, then another afterward. Going to keep the final 'look' a surprise as long as I can, but hopefully y'all will get a kick from it. Not too many 'What If' cars around so nice to do something that little bit outta 'left field', eh ? More soon. Ian.
My first completion of 2014, a phantom GT350R convertible combining the Revell 1964 1/2 convertible and GT350R fastback. Paint is Tamiya Dark Racing Blue with Gloss Aluminium stripes. Interior is Light Blue Pearl with embossing powder for carpet. Many parts from the Model Car Garage photoetch set were used to add detail, along with a little wiring, plumbing and exhaust tips from an unknown recent Revell kit. Wheels from the AMT '66 Mustang reissue.
