Tamiya Sierra Interior - The Grey days of summer!
Posted by Faust on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 4:13 PM
With all the sunny summer weather we’ve been having where I live, I’d sort of forgotten all about the grey, funeral skies of autumn and winter. However, thanks to the miracle of super-boring ‘80s interiors, I don’t have to worry about that anymore!
I’ve been working on the Tamiya Sierra XR4i interior for the last bit, and it’s all finished up now. However, I can’t say it’s the world’s most exciting “front office”. When you compare it to the coloured interiors that some cars got in its time, the Sierra’s flood of grey-on-grey action is pretty bland. However, I did get to use more greys in once place than I ever have before!
Check out the completed interior at the link below, and remember; I didn’t choose this colour combination, Ford of Europe did!
Let me know what you think!

Nice job on this! I know it's a bit boring by some metrics, but I always liked the achromatic look. Also, good call on Tamiya's weak interiors. I've built two of these, and both received new seat backs (I can't remember if I made the dash trays or not, but I'm guessing "not" since my first thought was that it was nice touch on yours).
