Superb! I particularly like the paint and decals.

It's done.  Despite the challenges the decals presented, I enjoyed building it.  And even though I could have created a new set of decals I'm glad I worked through the issues and used what the kit provided.

Thanks John!

 

I think the windows are supposed to be installed as one piece, but the left side windows didn't line up with the openings of the body.  So I cut them apart.
They still don't fit that well, but they fit a lot better.  Finally applied the last decal!

Now it's getting back on track…  The clear should stabilize things too.  The hand painted red parts are significantly thicker than decals, and the clear does a good job of hiding that even a couple days after shooting, so I haven't decided if I will deal with that or not.  Depends on how the clear cures.

Well!

 No matter, It's still Purty! It's gonna look alright! You'll see!

I was able to get more of the decals applied, but even with two coats of clear they are breaking apart so it's like applying a jigsaw puzzle for each one.

The interior is done.  There was no shifter in the kit; sometimes there is, other times there isn't.  I added one.  I added the two roll bar supports too.  They are shown on the instructions but are not included.  I guess it's still "out of the box"…  The gauge decals are a nice inclusion.

Thanks lurch!

 

 

One of the tire decals fell apart and since I didn't have an extra I had to make four new ones myself.
The rims are a combination of metal outers with resin centers and PE rings.

That looks great. Not sure if I could do something that small. Your painting skills are fantastic.

The other single color decals are just as brittle so I had to paint them in too.

I probably should have started with a smaller decal…  The first one cracked into many pieces and fell apart when I tried to apply it. 
I mixed a bright red with Tamiya acrylics and hand painted that one in. 
I clear coated the rest of the decals, but they are still very fragile.  The black is two decals but needs a good amount of touching up still.
I figured I'd start painting the window trim too...

If the decals are good it should be fun to do.

 

After the first base coat of yellow I pre-shaded the panel lines with black.
The second and final coat of TS-47 Chrome Yellow.

Nice subject.  Paint looks good - but next steps, decal or paint, look challenging.

Thanks,

John

1/43rd scale resin kit by Starter.
I typically bring something to tinker on or clean up while I'm relaxing at the GSL. This is what I picked for the last one, but I didn't get much done on it; maybe an hour of pre-paint prep in the hotel room.
The body casting was pretty clean with only a few medium pinholes to fill, but the window trim was a little on the soft side. A couple light coats of white primer and it looks OK.

First coat of the body color, and the instructions…
