Re: C5 Monoposto / Speedster

After it looked good in primer, I shot a base coat of gloss white and let it dry for a few days just to make sure there were no ghosting issues.

It looked good so I shot more of the same white for the color coat.

Re: C5 Monoposto / Speedster

I sourced these brakes from the parts box, I know they are Tamiya units; maybe from a Skyline GTR…?

Re: C5 Monoposto / Speedster

I decided to add the blue to the nose after all.

The tonneau cover shined up nicely…

Re: C5 Monoposto / Speedster

The glass, gas cap and lights are in.


The original plan was to black out the rear end, I think it still works.

I tacked in the hood and tonneau cover too.

Re: C5 Monoposto / Speedster

The driver's seat is from something Tamiya. I made the belts, buckles and decals.
