Tamiya 1/24 Castrol Toyota Tom's Supra GT

Recommended Posts

The decals on this one have been a great learning experience for a newb like me.  I still have a few more parts to paint and decal but this is everything so far.

Wow, looking good.   Yeah...Tamaya decals can be problematic sometimes.

I have that kit in my stash. My plan is to take the engine from the 1984 Toyota Tom's prototype and use in the Supra. Yes, that a 4 cylinder in there-I think it was peculiarity of the Japanese series rules.

Thanks Robert.. I've never had a problem with Tamiya decals but this is a pretty complex scheme for me but I've learned a lot and should make most of my stash kits easy.

Wow Tony, that is above my skill level for now.. I guess you will cut the hood open so you can see the engine?

Right now it's beyond MY skill level, too! That's one of the reasons I haven't yet begun the work.

A few more things done today.  I've been working from home for the past two months but I have to go back to the office tomorrow so I won't be getting as much done in the future.. looking forward to retirement :)

Thanks Atin... I started a couple of years ago and built 5 or 6 models before I got frustrated with bad paint finishes.  So I took two years off and kept watching YT videos and finally got the bug to try it again.  I have trouble with painting the bodies and end up having to strip them and start over.  This one was left in Tamiya primer because I like the way it looks and goes on so smooth.  I would be finished with this build but I'm waiting to get more practice with the clear on my test body before I shoot this one.  This is also the first build I have done where I have taken my time.  It makes a big difference I've learned.

You can tell that this build has been time consuming on your part and it's all payin' off. Looking verrry good so far Chris.
