Hey, everyone!, the following is the evolution of how I take a boring, one-piece engine bay, and turn it into something so much better, with a bit of wiring, and SBing.

-Photo 1; Apart from cutting a window, and drilling a ton of holes all over, this is the Whole engine in one part.  To the right, I cut some mesh to fit as a covering that the real car has.

-Photo 2; Here is the bit detail painted as Fujimi instructs....still not that great.

-Photo 3; Here it is with the Dann Touch. I wired up as much as I could, and here I am pointing at the last SB throttle body plate that I made for it. I left it off, so that you can see how huge a difference they make....notice the lower left throttle body.

-Photo 7; This is just an under side view to show most of the holes I drilled, and wired-up.  Next step will be gluing this bugger in so that I can mate the body, and chassis finally.

I always injoy seeing builders detail these limited detail engines. Great work.

Hey, everyone!, got a pretty decent update here from last night!

-Photo 1; I have successfully installed the glass!, infact, I've never had one go in this easily before....no edge sanding, and it just "clicked" right in!!

Dann, I hope you don't mind, but this is an overly simple Aventador I did back in 2015. Not really accurate, but much better looking overall than the kit piece!

Love your Lambo!

I don't mind at all, bud!, that's a great example of the transformation of a VERY basic, and boring part!...NICE job!!!  I've built the full detail Aoshima already, and I have one of these Fujimi ones in the works now. I'm doing a "Whose Part Is Better" post as I go along. I cant believe that there is NO coil spring detail!!!, must be the same guy who designed my Reventon kit!
