    Well it's time again for another model to be made included in our meets, this one is for what the current owner thinks has the most dedicated owner since the last meet on either fixing things or just general patience etc

    Parts and car pics to be on soon

    I'll give you a hint on who's car this will be based on...

    OK so little update and more to come later...

    So... Took the MK1 apart and stripped any paint and then added a primer coat and then a very light coat of yellow then as I removed the taxi of its sign on the top it leaves a hole, filled it with 0.5mm yellow plastic and super glued it from underneath (should of done this before the first coat of paint when on). Then when dry filled the top bit with plastic putty and left to set then with a very sharp scalpel scrape the top layers until its completely smooth with the original surface...

    It's now in the garage with another coat of yellow waiting to dry then it begins...

    I now know where I should off taken the wings and front bumper too get painted as it would off been a better job @Jimbobcook
    The joy off washing my car is getting less when I look at the newly painted parts as the colour differences shows when wet I get mad with one self and wish I did not get it done but when dry and polished up it does not look as bad and I’m happy again that’s what I have to remember when cleaning car

    I do feel for paint people as its tough enough getting a good coat on a model this size I'd hate to try and match colours and do a full size car...

    Spoke too soon lol just flipped it over to do the inside and it obviously wasn't completely dry as a little bit on the roof stuck to the board so strip it all and start again lol the paint remover will probably strip the plastic and putty so I'll be filling holes again later haha before the primer this time...

    Lesson learnt

    You Sir do have a talent. I can see that this is going to be another cracking trophy build and I think @Yellow fr will maybe be looking to win and keep this one permanently.

    Stripped and hole plugged and also the triangle on the bonnet as well as it looked out of place lol

    Now sat in the garage with a white primer coat drying, next coat in the morning.

    So I'm behind with this build even though now it's been given out lol here's an update.

    So the car took quite a few coats of yellow to show properly but persistence paid off lol

    Next was wheels... Black with yellow calipers
    IMG_20200206_204128_copy_1305x2320.jpg
    Then I checked with its owner on what they'd like in the diorama and we came up with a car ramp...

    Hope it serves you well lol
