How about an Exotic??

An older one to be exact!! This is a 1976 Lamborghini sihlouette I have started. This was the old reboxed testors kit that acutally was a Gunze Sangyo kit. I ditched the kit tires and wheels and opted for a set of Fujimi OZ Lambo type more modern Countach wheels and tires.. The rears are massive on thses!! So massive I will need to modify the rear chassis to make them fit!! But since its curbside it is not a big deal..... The paint on this car is Cobra Colors Dragon Fire Pearl. Its part of thier fire pearl line of paint.. pics do not do this color justice. WIth some tweaking I hope to get the car to sit like this... I need to paint the rear trunk area black so disregard the lack of paint in that area!!

I decided the body had cured enough.. SO I wetsanded and polished the paint... darkened in the pael lines. Next up is to paint the rear deck semi gloss black and add the side vent pods which also will be painted semigloss black. Hopefully I can get the car to sit like this too!!

I know, that thing is crying out for a set of Model Factory Hiro photoetched and aluminum wire wheels.

Maybe do mine in yellow??????

MFH too rich for my blood..LOL!! I think I am gonna leave the wheels chromed, but give a good black wash between all the spokes and call it a day. I do need to find some Dunlop decals for the tires though.

I had that kit when I was a kid but it fell victim to poor build skills and I lost it. I did just win the Pantera GTS from testors on e-bay and it's very similar to the lambo kit. Give us some finished photos.

Later,

Mike
