nice build, have a look at zoomon models on Facebook, based in Hong Kong, they have some nice upgrades for this, and other kits.

Thanks. Building box-stock, like I said above. Plus I'm not even on Facebook.

I'm on a home stretch - painted the windows. Lots of time was spent on creating masks - and with the T-tops its almost twice the work!

All interior pieces were cleaned up, filled, sanded, primed, and painted in base color:

Then masked off and painted black:

Silver with black and grey suede interior. I started my own build many moons ago, I've got a build around here somewhere from over a decade back lol... might have to pull it out and finish it off finally.

Great work on the interior btw, all the little detail work really makes it stand out and catch the eye!
