Hey guys! So, this is one of my models i am currently working on, a custom cuda pro touring style :naughty: Its basically a rebuild as it was once almost completed but something went wrong with the clear coat and then as i tried to fix it i only made it worse . Obviously i had no other choice but to strip the paint and redo everything which sucked. But after some time the bad feelings disappeared and i started all over again. This time however many changes where made compared to the 1. Attempt. New grill, hood(was damaged beyond repair), new chassis with custom suspension, new engine bay, interior and some minor changes to the front and the rear. What this means is basically that 80% or more will be scratch build in the end :smile: You can see the whole progress herehttp://www.makete.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17644
Here is the current and more relevant progress
Many of the ideas came from these two, g-force and sick fish cudas:

This is probably what the new paint scheme is gonna look like.. I will use the same collors as before but will use a carbon decal insted of gun metal paint for the hood and upper side of the fenders

Great work! I built one of these box-stock a long time back and can testify to the low quality of the kit contents. That second "inspiration" pic you posted at the top is awesome! That car looks sweet. Your work is coming along nicely.
