Body prepared. I was a little disappointed with the fact It's a Tamiya as there is quite a few sink marks I had to deal with.


I'll more than likely go with Pearl White on this.

Do you fill and and sand the sink holes David?, can't see where they were on the photograph, but i would imaginer they are difficult to deal with on a car body with curves like that. Anyhow Ill follow along, another stunner in the making. popcorn

You can see on the bonnet where the light is slightly distorted, that's my best attempt to make it flawless. I usually drop a little liquid super glue on it then carefully knife it flat then file and buff.

Great start! I am surprised by the moulding issues given it's a Tamiya kit - nothing is perfect it seems. Looking forward to watching this come together.
