Cool -In Progress: Aoshima Junction Produce Aristo- *Warning 56K*

Hey All..I'm currently workin on a Junction Produce Aristo AKA Lexus GS. This kit will be built OOB as I suck at making things I just got the kit from NissanS15Racer a couple days ago and got a little bit of progress done. So far all I did was get some of the things in the first 2 steps painted. I'm waiting to get some more primer and paint so I can continue it(I ran out of black paint for the chassis.) This is my first Aoshima kit and I got pretty confused when I opened the box and saw that all the instructions were in japanese But all I really need was the paints so I went online and searched AF and thank god someone posted a link to a chart with english translation. Hopefully I wont mess up..

Color Plans: I want to paint this kit Mica Red and have the main part of the rim gold with a chrome lip, using the wheels that came with the kit.

Heres the pix..







Let me kno wat ya think..

btw sorry for the crappy pix..I took em at like 3am heh

I love this kit, it was a pure joy to put together. If i remember rightly, the only problem was that the headlight lenses are way too big, need shaving a touch.
Good luck to you, here's a pic of mine.............................

Thanx all! I'm still waiting on primer and paint, but Im short on money so Im hoping my bro will buy some for his Evo VIII model he just got to replicate his 1:1 and I'll just use some of that..heh

I did a little work to the side skirts. I test fitted them and noticed they were longer then the front and rear bumper and I dont like that look so I sanded about 2mm of it and now it fits like I want it.

Also does anyone kno wats a good and easy way to clean out the craks between the door jams, bumpers, ect.. so the paint wont get stuck in there and clog it up?


BTW..nice aristo Mike! I noticed you didnt put the skirts on..did u have the same problem?

That is a nice kit, I'm currently working on the Fabulous Aristo by Aoshima, only thing I like about it better is the wheels that come in the Fabulous kit, they are the Profounds, really nice. I'm having trouble with the wheels in the back trying to get them under the body, and don't know how to go about it.

Good luck with yours and hopefully you don't run into the same problem.
