Nice one, Tom... I'll be watching with interest, since I just picked up the alternative Tamiya kit for about €20 _delivered_ from Japan, new from an Amazon seller! Ever since I built the LFA, I've seen a few of these around town, and I'm keen to get started on mine. What interior colour scheme are you going for? I think I'll do mine in the "red" version, just for some variety inside. Or are your sport seats going to be crazy blue or something?

Knowing you, it'll be half painted tomorrow night, and done by the weekend!

bestest,

M.

Now that everything has its basic colors down, it could all be organized again. And now the final detailing and assembly can start.

Cool interior that'll really stand out against that blue! Keep up the good work. May I ask what airbrush you use?

Great color and finish on the body. Interior looks awesome with the red inserts. I like how you have your parts organized by color...

Man, you are way too organized! But I'm loving this build. I'll probably never build this kit; however, I love watching builds like yours featuring good, clean work.

The base license plate was a decal from a Revell kit and the surround came as a decal with the wheels
