This kits was very low on my going to build list but it moved to the top in the last week.
Reasons being I haven't built much in the last couple of years so thought a curbside kit would be a nice ease back in. Plus with still being off work healing from my ankle surgery's in June money is a little bit tighter and I happen to have every paint that I will need for this build.
As a full size vehicle I do like it in white like the box art but I will be changing it from the early twin headlamp setup to the later single setup version. Both versions are in the kit as Aoshima also re-box it as a later version.
Why single headlamp..... like it more lol
Really won't to keep on a role and see this finished sooner rather than later.... not my normal style
Very nicely detailed body and very little clean up needed.
Like the body more parts with a good level of detail.
Not using much from this image. Just the black wheels and the smaller chrome parts.
Nice to see a kit with a texture on the seats.
The sprue tag to the main screens was just about ripping off still in the bag. Thankfully the damage is very little and it should be covered once in place.
Tyre tread is nice but need more clean up than I would like.
Very little building happening at my end. Have been in out of hospital over the last month.
Filled in the gap in the LH rear inner guard liner. It was my first time heating / shaping styrene and I am fairly happy with the results. Just needs a filler skim coat to finish it off.
The first seat back didn't go as smooth as the guard liner. With multiple shape changes I found it difficult to heat a new section to shape and not undo what had already be shaped, But nothing a bit of filler will not fix.
