Hi all this is my latest build, the BMW M6 GTLM from the IMSA WeatherTech Championship 2017 with special July 4th livery. Kit from Platz/Nu Nu 1/24 and the body shape was excellent. Need some basic touch up on the plastic but I am totally satisfied. Decal are created by myself and self printed with normal laser print (no white ink) so that putting them on the curved body were a big challenge.

Fitment is good, not to compare with Tanya but totally acceptable. There are a few mistake on the instruction manual but soon you will realize it. If anyone decided to glue the front bumper on the body before the front grill assemble you may need to cut off some material for fitting.

Nice job. How did you deal with glueing and painting the window position indicator?

Nice job. How did you deal with glueing and painting the window position indicator?

I drilled the LED holes with 0.5mm drill bits, and painted with red and silver to represent the lights on/off. then gun metal for the 88 raised line and flat black for the base. I always use Elmer's white glue for transparent parts.

Hi. Very nice result. What is your opinion about fitting of this kit? Is there any problem with headlights?

The fitting is generally good. Feels like Revell molding quality with Fujimi grade engineering. The headlight was the worse fitting parts overall and there is no clear tab for gluing. But still, I am happy with this kit. Honestly I enjoy building this rather than Tamiya AMG GT3 because it reminds me some old skill on sanding and fix fitment.

Outstanding, I love it.

According to your long experience, do you think it would be possible to sand down the windshield recess until it disappear...?

Thanks :smile:

I won't do that. If I need to rebuild the windshield it I'd rather use the original screen to vacuum form a new one by clear plastic sheets.
