hoi dirk, welcome aboard

i hate to tell you this but i just seem two MR2s and i think one of them was a vielside (not sure since it wasnt what i was looking for) at toemen modelbouw in den bosch

hoe dan ook, het ziet er naar uit dat je aardig op weg bent

toemen specialiseert zich ook maar op radiografish bestuurbaar gerei maar er zaten zeker wel wat aardige japanse kits bij

de intertoys in uden heeft ook een aardige selektie

waar ergens kom je vandaan ?

ik zelf kom eigenlijk uit noordbrabant maar ik woon tegenwoordig in michigan

er zitten hier nog 2 or 3 meer nederlanders

Hi Foxer,

The bleu is a Citroen color it called Bleu myosotis we first painted the car white and than we put the bleu on top of it like this the paint gets lighter.

looks like your off to a good start

i think i have seen these kits build before and they are a lot of work but from the looks of it you can handle it

interesante keus in verf

was je echt verknocht aan die citroen kleur of kon je hem goedkoop krijgen ?

(ik mag natuurlijk niks zeggen over kleur want ik heb vroeger deze kadett gehad)

:blink: WOWW that kit is a real pain (well you now where) it doesnt fit at all :angry:

Had to make some changes the nose was not wide enough about 4 mm the skirts are to short about 3mm and the rearbumper well not wide enough also 2mm.

Well first put it on the car as good as it gets and then we will see.

first of all, nice 1:1 car! i have never seen one in real life so thats a treat to even see a photo of someones real one!

but yeah most of those kits with the body kits require a lot of fitting, cutting and filling to get them to fit correctly. ive built a couple of skyline and silvias with body kits like that and nothing fit out of the box. but they looked very nice when done.

good luck and keep posting...opening those doors is going to lead to some interesting reading in the near future i think...will be interesting to see how you handle the challenges.

some not so good photos of the cars i built...dont mean to hijack your thread, just want to show they can be made to look good.

actually i dont recall if the garage defender silvia had fit problems because it had the sides moulded in but i do remember quite a bit of fitting and cutting and filling on the skyline.

Today i have made de decals for the MR2,Hard B) job to do that' to make de decals thats easy you can use any paint program on your comp i use paintshop.

then you have to scale it (so it fit your project) then print it on decal paper and spray some lacquer over it (this is because else the ink will disapear) so far so good,

but after i put it on the car you can barely see it the color shine,s treu so on a dark color it,s hard to see.

i found out i have to change the printer settings from normal paper to transparant sheet (nobody told me that when i bought the decal paper sigh ;) )well any way i place the decals and place the doors (thanks aftashox for the great door tut)now i can start on the inside of the car.

Some pics.

this is the scan i use to scale it to the right size.

See you next time
