Time to start putting paint on this so as I can go on with attaching separate items. I pre-shaded with a primer coat of Humbrol oil based enamel reduced for the air brush with Humbrol thinner to get a smooth coat, (not pebbly if I was to use cellulose thinner)
After this was dry I next used a Humbrol #73 for the primer base. This is a bit hotter than my usual #113- I have seen it this hot and thought I'd try something different. I plan on using some stop out (Vallejo) to get some cheeps here and there, mostly on the fenders.


















In this pic you can see the drive wheel with the plastic cyliner at the center. I decided to sand this thin and then remove, cleaned up the area and then glued the PE part that I soldered together (after annealing), in it's place. Dragon asks you to wrap this around the plastic tube at the center of the out half of the wheel but this seemed a bit thick for my tastes. A minor adjustment that was fairly easily accomplished- but care needs to be taken so as not to botch it up. I had to trim slightly less than a millimeter to adjust the size of the center PE cylinder, so as it would look in place of the plastiic one.

Careful

I'm currently working on this one as well. Careful when you get to the hood and side panels...I've just discovered a 1mm gap at the fire wall. I'm currently not too sure what to do about it.
Nice build, hope you don't run into my problem.
