Let me lead this post by saying WHAT a fantastic kit. Brilliant in every way. I literally could have dropped it off my bench, and it woudl have fallen together. 

The end result is loverly. The only real modifications I made are deepning the panel lines, adding seatbels and some flocking for carpets. Oh, and I also wired (correctly!- thank you for all the feedback on my last effort) the distributor cables. But you can't see them as they are no buried deep inside the model. 

I know they are there, and it makes me happy. Y'all are just going to have to take my word for it!

The colour is by Azzuro Thetis by splashpaints (www.splash-paints.com), as always, i can't recommend them and their clear coats enough. No sanding needed on this to get a brilliant shine. 

Here are the pics - hope you like it. Let me know your thoughts and comments.

... Interior with added seatbelts and carpets.

... Engine bay and engine. This hides so much of the detail, really is a bit of a shame. Its a beautifully constucted engine.

Very well done indeed. What did you do to get the aluminum trim around the vents: at least I'm pretty sure I see that around them? I used BMF when I did them.  And headlights that work!??  Cool!

That colour choice sure shows off the body lines nicely, fantastic work. Interior looks amazing

What did you

My method was to start with the metalic, mask and then spray a primer and top coat. 

I do the metalic with a high gloss black, then mist on some metalic paint. Easiest way to mask circles i find is with a small ball of blue tack... just roll a ball and gently press on until it covers the whole vent. 

Thanks for your comment! Glad you like it.
