Good stuff Tomo... At this pace, you will have three or four kits built in a couple months (Please add me to that list :lol: ).

A couple weeks back I learned from a fellow member the use of markers to make the console buttons, but yours sure look a lot better, how do you paint these?

Yeah I can finish a build relatively quickly, it's called having nothing better to do :P but time is now gonna be slightly occupied! :P

For the buttons I use a very sharpened toothpick, dab the end of it very very slightly against the paint that sticks to the lid of the tamiya acrylic tubs, and just barely touch the button. Works every time :)

I'm waiting on my PE pieces for the interior. Figured I would do a quick build while I'm waiting.

Here's my entry: Fujimi Porsche 911 GT3R. It's a really nice curbside kit. The plan is to take my time and really add a lot of extra detail to the interior and body. I need to fine tune this for a F2001 build down the road.

Small update on BMW. Hopefully computer wont lose this post. After working on a Tamiya kit, this thing is like going back in time. Had to sand the top of the block to get head to sit flat. Front engine cover appears to be sized wrong; it sits above the heads when installed. The intercooler is 90* off from pics I found of real car.

Have to paint a few more engine details on clamps and airbox.

Got a little more done on BMW. This thing has more ridges on areas that should be flat. Engine didn't fit correctly in bay. Still trying to decide if gas tank/rear undertray should be aluminum per directions, or some shade of black. Can't find any rear pictures on line.

The project is coming along nicely Oscar, I know is a crappy shot, but try here for a fuel cell unrestored.

Based on some other pics I found of a 320, not a 2002 :P , it looks like its "dark" under rear bumper, so time to paint over the flat aluminum. Thanks for the link Juan!

Found a better set of pictures. Not sure why I couldn't find these in beginning. Wrong livery, but correct chassis.

May be helpful to someone in the future.

I know this build doesn't qualify for this thread (By a week), but is probably the reason why we got the GT forum started... It is without a doubt the best one off my bench so far.

Just wanted to share it with you guys
