the film footage was altered in post-production making the fabric appear charcoal grey

That's some neat trivia, I like both colors. I can't choose which one I like best.

I'm 95% complete on the cannonball mustang without the decals it's still complete for me but when I get the decals it will actually be complete

One more completed.  Nice job. 

I don't think mine will get finished in time.

Awesome! Yeah those decals will really signify the build... I've been looking for Testors gloss geeen since you announced the build. No luck yet maybe they discontinued that color... I like the background of the photos too nice detail...

Well, I'm calling this one done. It's built basically kit stock except for the light bar and Aoshima wheels and tires.

Awesome job on this! Are those PE or chrome stickers for the Decepibadges?

They're metal transfer stickers I bought on ebay. Evidently there is a big market for high end Transformers figures but most haven't licensed the logos so they're sold separately.

Lotus Esprit - The Spy Who Loved Me

This is a £50 piece of sprue:

IMG_20201026_181359405.thumb.jpg.1fbf2f223aac96cfa8faf1c48539922d.jpg

Discovered much too late it was missing from the first Fujimi kit. However, I'm determined to get to the start line, so I went to order a second; anyone else noticed prices have risen post Covid?! Anyway, the kit finally arrived from Italy today. I'm taking the opportunity to redo the body too as I wasn't happy with #1, and this time it has has white primer on, not grey, after some bad advice I took before!!

So have gotten back to the Marked for death mustang. Got interior done, chasis painted, and engine pretty much done. Painted the wheels again, as I  noticed in a pic of the actual car they are gray not black. Carpeted the floors and rear shelf. Hope to get it done in time. I am trying to get my He shed set up as well. Thanks for lookin and any comments are welcome.

Hey folks... I'd thought I'd post these photos of my latest attempt at building Star cars.

These are not my CBR entries...just for inspiration... I built these for the  local club challenge for last month, theme was Halloween...

These two are from the Netflix series Stranger Things... I hope these will inspire everyone to finish strong with your own screen car builds.

Those are very good, I love that body style of Camaro.

Lotus Esprit S1 - The Spy Who Loved Me

Very nearly there. She's on her feet & most of the black detailing is done on the body, but I ran out of masking tape. When I signed up in January I didn't think I'd be still toiling in November!!

Got the mustang in primer. It came with no fan shroud, so took one from an 80s mustang and adapted it to it. The engine is a 351C from a pinto kit, because the 351 that comes in the kit is 👎! Added exhaust tips. Get paint on it soon 🤞.
