Hey, everyone!, i'm trying to see if I can get this VERY basic kit done in one month. I started it on March 1st, and I think I may be able to do it! My hardest challenge was to NOT fix everything, but pick and choose what I NEEDED to do. The interior tub was an embarracement. As you can see, all the white bits, are the things I needed to SB. The interior doors weren't even scribed!!!

I will be watching this Dann...love your work.  Those seatbelts and seat latches look awesome by the way.  I so appreciate all the small detail you put in your models.

Heres a rough sand test fit. For some reason the upper half of every fender vent wasn't open like the lowers....and they should be. That's one thing I couldn't leave alone, so I broke out my PE saw, and fixed them.

As with ALL of my Curbside builds, I pre-assemble the undercarriage, and paint it all with black primer.

Here we have the interior bits in their main kolors...There is going to be Knarlwood accents, and I've decided to take out those PE speakers...I tried tamiyas liquid cement, and as you can see, they really look like a dogs dinner...

Never seen one built, so looking forward to it. I like your personal challenge - to restrain your SBing!

These fujimi curbside kits are all basic, and don't come with any door cards. It really annoys me!

Your build is coming along really well! Good luck with your deadline

I really love how you add so many little extras that would hardly ever be noticed, but YOU know they're there, and we know it too, sweet!

Interesting subject. Thank you for making correct seat belts. I also like what you are doing with the interior. That area is seriously lacking in these kits.

Cool, a slap-and-dash kit by Dann The Man!  Looking good so far.  I would want to lower a couple inches, looks easy enough.

Thanks, Curtis!!, I have a number of these Koenig curbside kits, but the testarossa version is pretty much more detailed than the rest.
