I spent a ton of hours on the interior including toggle switches, ecu boxes, seat belts, carbon fiber decal and wiring only to realize you can't see through the glass except with a flash light

Beautiful, especially for such a small scale. One of my all-time favorite racing cars.

sure wish they would do a plastic 1/25 kit of the GT1/98. Looks good.

I know Revell did one, but It was a diff. livery. Not sure if it was the exact same GT1 so I'll have to do some digging

The Revell kit is a EVO, and not a 98. The 98 had a different body, which was different to the original 96 97 cars and the G-99.

There was several GT1s: 96/97 GT1, GT1 stra├čenversion (street car) which was based on the GT1 EVO, GT1 EVO, GT1/98, the canceled 1999, the GT1 G-99, and the GT1 G-99 Spyder.

Makes sense, thanks. It also avoided me making a blunder later on Thanks !

Very nice Mark. Especially the decal application. That's always my downfall!

Thanks! No problems except for the mirrors. The pattern alignment and getting them to conform tested my patience but a little setting solution and a hair dryer fixed them.

There is a resin cast kit in 1/24th available from England. Nice curbside sans decals, but they are available from Patto's in Australia.
