tamiya mustang GT-4 finished. this kit was really nice and fun to build some nice detailing and some plumbing really makes it. I have forgotten to sand the tires though so I'll have to fix that. but I've already purchased another kit to build and might have to get more. it seemed to just fall together awesome kit

dindt use the kit carbon fiber as I wanted to do the front splitter and canards so I used scale motorsports carbon fiber so everything matched

Looks great. I have three of them waiting for my skills to improve so that I can do them justice.

Very nice! I assume that all of the 1:1 cars started out painted white, hence the instructions to paint the floor pan and interior white. I really like the subtle weathering you did underneath. It looks like this car has spent some time on the track. An explanation and/or tutorial on your technique would be appreciated. Some dry brushing of craft paint maybe?

Fantastic looking Mustang. Every time I see one of these built makes me want to buy one even though I already have a huge back log of want to build already have kits.

steve, 

from what I know they are painted a basic color like white or grey then the livelry is a vinyl wrap. the weathering on the inside and chassis was done with weathering power. I used grey and black powder lightly brushing it across the surface then blew off the excess. added a little at a time until I was happy. 

 

thank you for your comment and I hope this helps!
