  1. I’ve had this kit out a few times and finally decided to finish it. For a Hiro kit the details are basic but ok.. you need to do a bit of sanding and fitting of parts before painting and glueing. Detail wire is from various manufacturers and the carbon decals are from Tamiya. The motor is a metal lump that goes into the rear plate. With the rear roll bar and radiators you won’t see much of it when the body is on. Thanks for looking

  2. This is the first of 4 of these kits that I have to build. The kit builds very well , with planned instructions. Follow the build sequence in some areas . On the nose I put the lower dive planes on before the vertical ones. Made for a better fit. The color is a Tamiya bright Red over pink primer. The decals are from Indycals. They are super thin and need to be floated on. I found by putting a bit of dish detergent in the water it helped them slide. All the graphics are decals including the black and white areas. If you look in the wip section you will see the interior. It’s wired and has belts added. Carbon is a mix of Tamiya and Scale Motorsports. Then has semi gloss or flat clear added. Need to add the support bars and adjusters on the nose. Waiting for the wire to show up. I will post a few better ones from outside

  3. This is the new Tamiya Mustang kit. It’s the use Tamiya kit. It just falls together. The color is Tamiya bright Red over Pink primer. The decals are from Indycals and are super thin. They lay down great ,but you need to float them wet onto the body. They will grab very quick if not. The door panels and rear and  the center tunnel were done  with carbon decal odds and ends. The foil heat shield was made by taking BMF and rubbing it over Tamiya mesh screen.  Thanks for looking
