Ahh yes, I have that sheet too, just need to get the paint, what paint are you going to use ?

I’m going with a Tamiya blue...I thought about sourcing the right blue from Hiroboy but another builder here used the Tamiya color and it looks great to me.

I think TS44 Brilliant Blue is a close match for it.

Wow, that is a lot! I have a BMW Z4 GT3 by Fujimi that is similar and I am looking forward to getting to it.

Theres a Miura dash back there too!!!

Indeed. I really need to move all my cars forward, but I keep getting distracted. Yesterday was paint day so I did a lot of spraying of 4 cars. Part of last week was spend dealing with a screw in my tire and the previous week was rebuilding the dryer so laundry could get finished. Life keeps getting in the way of hobbies.

Looks like great livery, I like the colour. I'll follow along on this one. 

I contemplated doing the box stock livery, but I wanted something a little more vibrant.

Couldn't agree more. Plus it's always a nice touch when you can build something out of the main stream offerings.

You know, William...that's sounds exactly like my life for the past three months....right down to the painting thing!....I have five or six kit interiors to paint VERY soon, and we had to put new tyres on our REAL jeep!....weird

Hopefully life slows a bit for both of us. I'm anxious to get moving on the models and even more anxious to see what you do with a color on the Pagani Huayra. ;)

Suspension and brakes are on. And I’ve started the interior. I didn’t care for the buttons on the center console. It’s hard to tell from the photos but I used heated drill bit to recess them to look more like the real thing. A little paint should help too but my eyes are tired.
