Did some work on the 911.
I sprayed a test shot on a plastic spoon to is if the yellow gold flak idea will work.
I am happy with the result.

Fulled up some holes in the plastic to.

Hi all did some work on the Gt this weekend.

Filled a little recess in the wing below the gt2 logo and sprayed it with light coat tamiya white primer.


Filled a hole in the rear bummper, not sure what its there for.


Asked friends about the mirrors and found that the mirrors must by place like this.


Removed the hoot clips and other object on the bonet. Will add  Photo-Etched hood clips when post office start working again pale

Ok so I was lazy and didn't post pics but now here a bunch of pics


First a tip on how I attach my models mirrors
I drill a 0.5mm hole into the base of the mirror and into the side of the body.
Then insert 0.5mm wire into the base of the mirror with small drop(really small) super glue.
A 0.5mm can be pushed into the hole in the body to keep it clean when painting it or re drilling the hole to clear it out.


The following image show how I sprayed the mirrors


I drilled a 0.5mm hole into a ice scream stick and insert the mirrors wire into it

Ready for paint


The interior is almost done just need to do the dashboard



I need to finish up the front suspension and paint the engine.


I stuffed up the carbon decal on the bonnet and try to fix it but cannot get the small strip on the right off.
So I soak the body in water over night to help soften the decal to get if off with damaging the paint.


The next morning was not so fun. The nail polish didn't like the water and was full of little bubbles.
Try sanding it but as worsen it so will strip it this weekend
