Lots of progress, but not many photos...

Zero Paints Beige is down on the interior, the dash masked & completed the Semi gloss black

Exhaust took ages, I was trying to fill the gaps & kept breaking them, they've been sprayed in Zero gloss black ready for alcladII alu finish...

The wheels will be gloss black, they might need another couple of coats to give them depth, they don't look great in the photos...

This is coming along great as well!!

Thanks Dann!

 

Made a bit more progress, I want to get the carpet done in the interior before moving onto the body. I know most people do the body first - probably 'cause it's the easiest thing to mess up... and also takes the longest to do - letting it gas out.

Used alclad II dark aluminium for the exhaust - wanted to get a colour contrast in the engine bay.

Started detailing the dash, it's coming along slowly & the break discs are almost finished...

Nice clean masking/paintwork!!!

Thank you Dann!

One more bit of progress, the wheels have been coated with 1K clear from Zero Paints, - they came out quite nice!

Some progress! But I'm still not having much luck with the black wash, these seats will have to be resprayed.

I've never had a problem with Tamiya decals before, but these ones fall apart with just a nudge with a brush. Both the main dials fell apart & it was a struggle to get them into the dash...

Next step is to flock the interior or start on the body

Hi Curtis!

I used thinned down Tamiya acrylic  over Alclad II satin clear coat.

What I did then, is wiped off as much as I could - using lacquer thinner, and re-sprayed a few light coats of beige/cream, and I'm not going to try to re-wash.

And this is how they came out.

They'd have been better with a deeper wash, but it'll do...

Good save on the seats, they look fine now...looks like the protective clear got eaten by your weathering so it attacked the seat paint. Been there, stripped an entire body because of it

Happy to see more progress on yours

Not much progress, and not doing so well with the flocking either.

I'm using Hiroboy beige & a generic PVA / White glue from HobbyCraft, watered down about 40% water, and it still ends up patchy. And me being an idiot I tried to glue the PE net to the bulk head  with CA, which just stained the flocking.... As a test (after research) I am going to try some Enamel gloss paint - see if that is better than PVA... If not, I'll change my brand of PVA glue and see how it goes.

but on the plus side, I added the PE discs to the brakes, they are brass, so were primed with Tamiya X11, they look much better than my feeble attempt to add a dark wash to the indents moulded into the plastic. The Main bit left now is the body shell. I've wanted to finish the BMW M5 first before I move onto it. It's getting a bit cold for spraying too...

Great build, I also have this one on hold at the moment.  Sprayed the body in Yellow and went with the black gloss wheels.  Started on the black interior and with building up the engine.  I need to learn how to detail the engine, that one looks great.

Thanks Skid, engine & chassis are my favourite parts, I really struggle with a good finish on the body!

Update - now that I've gotten over leaving the flocking as it is (was tempted to try & redo), I've started to build it up.

Will start on the body soon.

Updates over Christmas, assembly has got to the stage where I really need to make a start on the body shell...!

No real issues with the build so far - well - only the decals falling apart.

This Tamiya Kit is well engineered and goes together well. But don't get me worng, it's still a challenge for a novice like me...

Nice!  I built the coupe over a decade ago and to this date it is still one of the most enjoyable kits I've ever done.

I’m currently working on the Modena version. And I agree. Probably the most well engineered intermediate kit ever made for box stock purposes.

2. Tamiya Supra(93)

I think shortly after this came out, a different model car magazine voted it one of the best kits ever produced. I remember being so excited to use a Hobby Lobby coupon to get 40% off that I went back the next day an bought another one. That was in 2001. Both are still in the stashpile.

Everyone raves about the quality of this kit.

I think this wash is much more realistic than a deeper one....
