PostSubject: Fast and Furious Evo 8 AMT Kit   Fri 15 Aug 2014, 9:47 pm

Was going to try a replica of the film version until I got the kit and watched the film for reference.. BIG mistake, the kit was nothing like it!

So I just painted it blue .. Couldnt use the decals as they just crumpled up and fell to pieces when I tried to unfold them.
Paint is some Humbrol blue metallic and I tried clear coating it with Humbrol clear, but when I went to polish it, the clear started coming off so I left it.

Enough writing here it is

Nice. My son's best friend has an EVO. That car is just plain stinkin' fast. I've not felt torque like that since I rode on my uncle's 65 Corvette back in 1980 !

Must have missed this somehow.

It looks good Ash although I'm not keen on the big inch wheels. (I'm just an old school hot rodder!!! LOL)

Unfortunately I have never been in one :(

Al they came in the kit, I did plan on making them black as per the original but decided against it.
