Weird, l've had a couple 1:1s but like them better as 1:25. Very nice build. l'm a little late on the pro-touring band wagon, but l sure like what can be done in this genre. Very cool car! Bart.

Nice paint, I like the red stripe, neatly done. Looks like you converted to a coil spring rear? Those tailpipes wouldn't be legal around here. Over all a very cool car.

Nice model... but that sway bar on the rear axle connected like it is wouldn't be doing you a whole lot of good! :lol:

Nice job on the piant! What do you use to mask off your stripes? Overall, it loks really good.

I usually use Tamiya masking tape, but for this one I actually used some Fine Line automotive "pinstriping" tape. It was very thin, not sure about the exact measurement. First time I've tried this type of scheme on a car. I usually stick to the safe, single color paint jobs.

Pretty happy with how it came out.

Yeah, Chip & our own JDM Fan inspired me to try this.

Thanks!

It actually does look more like silver in the pics, doesn't it?

It's actually Tamiya Champagne Gold TS-75 out of the can....

I love it! Excellent work.

Thank you sir! B)

Probably true! I got the idea for the rear-end set-up from a Tim Boyd article in the "other" model car magazine. I didn't want to stress about the "correctness" of it, I just wanted to complete something & have fun while doing it.

Am I the only one who has more "in-progress" builds, than actual finished models, that languish due to obsessing over details? (the dreaded AMS syndrome! :blink: )

Very nice and no, you are not the only one with more WIP than completed models! If I were to finish all of my WIP, then I would have to buy a couple more display cases or shelves for them! :D
