Hi all, I finally got this bugger sanded flat and filled correctly and the colour put down.


It is champage gold.

I've not seen this Italeri kit before. I'll enjoy seeing how it looks. Thanx a bunch.

Nice color choice. I'm thinking about something other than silver for mine as well. Hopefully following your build can help me get back to the bench.

Excellent colour! Of course I'm partial to 'off-gold' metallics so I'm biased, lol. Looking forward to watching this one develop.

I've made a start on the mechanics. Straight out of the box as it needs no extra detail.

I built a Revell kit, the engine detail was not near what this is. Nice start.

Thank you gentlemen. A little more progress with the engine mounted and all the suspension completed. Moving on to the interior now.
