This is going to be GREAT!!, this is an awesome kit!, I like the way you pre-assembled all the chassis parts before painting....I do the same thing with these types of kits that don't have complete engines, to me, its a waste of time, energy, and money that could be used on another detailed build.

Yes,  I try and save as much time as possible, like bulk painting parts ,   the chassis, I only painted the underside black,  I did paint the control arms, but the the rest is all bare plastic, no point in painting what is never gonna be seen.   You kind of try hurry up when the garage you are painting in is over 100 degrees at midnight :lol:, thanks summer.

Having recently completed an Aoshima Mitsubishi Pajero kit, I was impressed with the quality and fit of the parts.... you will enjoy this Lamborghini build of yours, and that Rosso Bia is going to really look the business!

Some progress was made

Body was clear coated, needs some wet sanding, I really need to strain the clear.

Interior, nothing great, just done, I didnt worry about doing a lot detailing, the doors will be glued in the close position.  It took a lot tries to get the red done on the seats.
