Heres where i left off; assembling things with canopy glue until they are just the way i want them.

-Photo 2; The main suspension assemblies are basically where i want them.

-Photo 3; Tyres are from a Fujimi Ford GT40, and the wheels are from an MRC set.

-Photo 4-6; Perfect stance!

Those wheels and tires look so cool. I wish I had them also, a bunch of them. 

I love'em too!, lol....so much in fact, that i ordered MANY GT40 kits just for the tyres!....i use them on my Ferrari 250 GTO's...Lamborghini Miura's...my Invader, and various 1960's muscle cars in my collection.

Hey, everyone!, i'm feeling like working on the easiest bit now -the interior, lol

-Photo 1; This is a bit missed by most people...the interior padding goes all the way to the A-pillar. After removing the upright, i have a section of padding from a second kit that i will splice in.

-Photo 2; The bench in the real car is actually raised up a bit, so i will be fixing that issue.

-Photo 3; I will do my usual work to make the seats look more "cushiony". The arrows point to the areas that need to be scribed. Since i have a bunch of spare seats, i will be separating the backs from them, and adding the more realistic details....i'm really looking forward to that bit!.

Ever consider casting them up so you have a mold without having to use up the last of your sets?

I've thought of that before, but i just looked through my entire stash, decided which ones needed them, and ordered the proper amount of GT40 kits, lol.....did that YEARS ago.
