lil project ive been working on... Kyosho 1/18th. MINI ME...

Started this in july.... Just worked on it in my free time... Turned out pretty good.. some things were pretty hard to get right.. So they arnt perfect..

Pic of my car....









heres what i did...

Clay'd the trunk and sanded to try to recreate the Amuse trunk (it came out more Voisteiner-ish)... painted.. wet sand... clear coat...
Stole front lip from a different model
Painted from grills satin black
Ripped off front license plate and sanded and repainted front bumper
Painted interior Fox-Red... Extended too!.. wasn't $2k this time..
Stole wheels from a 997 GT3 cup Auto-Art model
Took springs out to lower it...
Satin black exhaust tips to recreate my Dinan.. (all 4 tips non functional.. not just 2)





About half way with the trunk here...















after first coat.





inner door and front bumper with plastic set posts in bumper..
