Very nice blue color, and great shine as well!
The silver stripes are a tiny bit off on the front...

Looks great man! Did you do any modifications to the headlights? It looks like you have a clear part where the kit chrome would be.

Great looking beast.
My kiddo is building this kit now. Struggling with stripe decals!

You're right. I didn't really like the chrome parts from the original kit. So, most chrome parts were replaced; wheels, brake disks, muffler tips, and headlights.

I was also struggling with the stripe decals, though they're not aligned well after all.

I also spent lots of time to solve the fitting problem of the hood, even though it turns out imperfect. I guess the only solution is to build this model with the hood opened so that there's no fitting issue.

Havenīt a better finished GTS so far. Flawless! Must have been a lot of sanding, test fitting and putty.
