Lamborghini Reventon...onto the body

Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone!, This is my Fujimi Lamborghini Reventon build......obviously...lol,  Even though its only a curbside, I will be detailing the interior to make it look like the real car, since things are missing, or not done right. I even have a technique that replicates Lamborghinis special leather called; Alcantara. I will also show how I take a one-piece engine, and still make it look convincingly real. Hope you enjoy!

I rarely do what the instructions tell me, and this time is no different, so I will be starting with the interior...I had to make a handle on the center column that was missing, as well as triangular holes in the seats corners. O the dash, there was an open space in the handle that needed to be filled, so I shaped some styrene strip, and glued it in. Using Plasti Zap, I filled sink holes in the interior tub, and the headrests of the seats...

Ooooh, I'm liking this. This is one of my favorite "supercars." Going to do the silver/gray color as pictured?

Thanks, Rusty!, the first photo is gonna be the kolor, yes. I think it looks better than the traditional Matte Grey.

Got another interior update here; Made a template for the firewall padding, cut out the slides for the seatbelt adjusters, cut the seatbelt slots out, and got rid of those molded-in peddles!!  -Next step will be Scratchbuilding the correct peddles, and kleaning everything up for paint!

I've decided that i'm not totally happy with my firewall padding, so I am going to redo it with a bit thicker piece of sheet styrene.....same technique though.

Coming along nicely Dann, looking forward to this one. Btw, what thickness is that sheet styrene you’re using?
