Toyota GR Supra

 For the last 10 yrs I have had this custom of finishing a project on New Years day. It takes some planning but I manage. This years candidate is Tamiya's Toyota GR Supra in 1/24 scale.  Colour chosen was Alclad Holomatic Spectral chrome which was sprayed over Tamiya TS-55 dk blue. Clear coat was Krylon latex clear. Interior was done with Mr Color #70 blue, Mr Color #328 blue  and Mr Color  #182 flat clear.  This kit was a joy to do. The fit and finish of the parts was amazing.  I would highly recommend this kit to anyone.  See the photo  captions for extra details on this build.  Thanks for looking. DSC07174.JPG.003f100567621c71c5846651c0f6a85d.JPG

This is one of my favorite interiors. I had a flocking that matched the light blue quite nicely.

This photo doesn'rt do justice to the headlight treatment. Many pieces just to keep it accurate.

Krylon Latex clear takes a couple months to cure before it can be sanded and polished. This was painted several times before I found a clear that would not distort the very thin metallic finish of Alclad.  Krylon now makes this finish as Lo-Odor clear.
