Thanks Juan!

There. Painted the window black trim. Was masked using BMF and then airbrushed with satin black. Pretty much ready for all the decals now. :wacko:

Minor update on BMW. Chassis is finished. Body painted VHT Hemi Orange and window trim done. Will need to clear, decal, then clear again. Trying to decide if I want to try to paint wheel centers gold or leave as is?

Chassis looks good, I am sure that orange is going to pop when you get some clear on it

I guess I should update the Minolta, body is in color, I used Tamiya brilliant blue, it was the lights blue I had on hand

Jeeze! How do you guys work so fast? I'm still looking for replacement decals for the Toyota, The ones I have are VERY Yellow. Who knows maybe I can try and salvage them and go heavy caking on dirt to try and cover them up.

Well........I am about halfway done on decals. Really tough stuff! Had to touch one up because the decal solvent weakened it too much. Looks ok I guess.

Looking good!!!...

I'm sorry I have been kind of quiet but the past few days had been in bed drinking fluids and feeling like a peeled potato (Or maybe should I say "smashed").

Ken, great work on the decals, the body looks great

Juan, glad to hear you are feeling better, nice kits you bought, I am watching a few of the NSX kits on ebay right now, and yeah, cant go wrong with the R34, I am very curious about the one you got, I built the none special edition of that kit,

I will be getting back to work on the Minolta this week, I need to get further along with the 50's olds first , I have to have it finished by the 15th of this month

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

Small update on BMW. Got most of decals applied. Did them based on pictures I found on-line vs. what directions said. So I put numbers on doors instead of rear quarter. Let this dry overnight and put another coat or two of clear. Thanks for looking.

Sweet work going on here guys.

Hope you're doing well Juan!

I got some paint laid down on that Calsonic yesterday, just a base coat though. It's gonna be a lot longer than planned, between Lara and school exams, getting a minute is tough. Once the body is finished the paint stage though I've no rush!

I'll get an update soon.

Can't wait to see that R34 Juan, it's from around the same year as my Calsonic I think.

Cheers!

WAIT!!!... Did you just said Lara???... As in Lara Croft???, I think I just found my missing sibling!!!... She was the one that got me trough 5 days of laying in bed with a fever IOI.

Cant wait to start with the Nissan... The friend that helped me with the Supra decals made one to die for.

Everyone is looking nice. Well done guys.

I'm finally able to start with the build. I used a sharp hobby knife to remove the buttons and switches to the center console and dashbord, sanded, and drilled very very small holes using a pin vise. Doing so will allow me to add aftermarket switches, buttons, etc. I also cut the hole in the passenger center air vent. A small hose/vent will go there. I'm using reference pictures from the internet for guidance.
