Considering how much I hate painting, I bow down in awe of you!

Thanks man

painting has become my favourite part! I love playing with colours. I guess it's also the endless learning curve...it took me years to take the plunge and get an airbrush. I used to think I'd need a PhD in painting. Now I actually enjoy experimenting with it.

It's final assembly I hate. Very stressful.

Been working on the interior and chassis. I've since added shelf speakers and a club plaque.

 The interior does have some gold glitter parts, such as the centre console, arm rests and dash top. More apparent to the naked eye than the camera.

Also chucked more clear on it, prior to a final wet sand and polishing. I got the rattle can clear quite warm, almost hot, by immersing it it hot water for a few minutes. This seems to minimise orange peel. On a single colour body I'd probably just polish this, but here you can see tiny height differences in the various layers, and that needs knocking flat before polishing.

Thanks for the kind words and following the progress chaps.

final assembly was a bit tricky. Clamps, epoxy...you know the score..    some twisting in the body and chassis combined to make life hard, but that's model building!

under glass now
