I do luv the Castrol colored cars and the decals will be a job! Somebody did a really nice Tamiya Audi (?) racer and it came out super, or supra! Good luck on a beauty!

so finally got round to some kind of update

for the last week ive not been able to do much for a variety of reasons, work getting in the way being the main one,.......slicing my right thumb for another!,.....its not bad but its in such a place its been hard to pick things up or use a knife or paint brush without it hurting

but ive managed to get lots of bits painted in advance using rattle cans, the seat is decaled up, havnt got any aftermarket belts of i might have tried using them

shell has had a light coat of white





now i have a few rest days from work i plan on cracking on with this

Really nice work. Luv the interior where the roll cage dominates. The seat looks great too. I'm crossing my fingers the rest will go smoothly. Take your time, we can wait. Good luck with the thumb too. I nicked mine a few weeks ago and it was a real hassle too.

finally got up the enthusiasm to make a start on the decals

considering they are tamiya and the kit is not very old (bought in a shop only a few months ago) they seem quite delicate

I made a start on the recently re-released Zakspeed Capri over the weekend,
apart from the disappointment of it's very few parts (almost a snap kit)
the decals cracked up even though I was using a decal softener....not happy!
I hope you have more success with the Toyota.

i am making progress......honest! lol

just very slow progress........some very dodgy decals considering i only bought the kit a few months ago.......very fragile, had a few break up

im trying to get all the red/green swirly bits done first since they are the largest

Paul.... I built this one a while back and while it's a nice kit, the decals are not the best. Mine didn't break up but didn't conform well, even with Microsol.

You have most of the hard ones done and it's looking very nice ondeed but IIRC, the hardest of all are these ones:



Don't want to dampen your spirits but if yours are breaking up, you may want to use paint instead.

I did manage to get mine on but not without a lot of effort.

just to show im still working on this.......... finding i can only do 3 or 4 decals at a time cos they are so delicate, coupled with my lack of time at the bench at the mo means its becoming a long job

Looking at the model you would never believe there is a decal problem. Nice work.
