Hasegawa BMW 2002 Turbo

Recommended Posts

This is my version of the Hasegawa BMW 2002 Turbo. I stripped all of the chrome and painted the vehicle in Splash Paints Nocturnal Black. The vehicles suspension was lowered to fit aftermarket Aoshima wheels an I added a slight camber to the front wheels. Please let me know what you guys think and give me feedback since I'm still new to this hobby and have tons to learn. Sorry about the picture quality.

Thank you

That is some nice black paint going on there. Great detail painting on the figure as well!

That's actually a cool build!  All black- aftermarket rims- aggressive stance. What's not to love?

Welcome to the forum!  New eh?  You have better luck at paint that I do!  I have that kit, missed the metal emblems and took a look, oh yea!  Very clean build, the only suggestion is flat black inside the exhaust tip.

Thank you 89AKurt. I will take your suggestion and paint the inside of the exhaust tip. I love the kit it. It is good quality and easy to put together.

Good to know it goes goes together well.  Too bad no engine, but someone fixed that.  There are also door panels available, so I'm doomed to never get it built. 😂

Did you polish the paint?  Black is a pain to get right, you did great.

That looks sweet, and very current in your styling choices. Very nice paint too

Looks good in black, a friend of mine from the BMW car club championship used to race a black highly modified one. Sadly it turned left into the pit wall at Donington - an excess of power over grip!

Strictly the negative camber should be more on the rear wheels but it looks fine as it is.

Well done!

Thank you all for your comments. I spray my models with Splash Paints primer, paints and their clear coat. Their product is amazing and it doesnt require any polishing at all.

As everyone else has commented, The paint is outstanding.  I like the wheels also, I might have put just a little less camber on the front but that is the style. You should be very proud of how this turned out.
