Holiday Build #2 - Supra was created by IAN
So the second holiday project has hit the bench:





Tamiya's 'Toms' Supra GT, definitely not going to be finished in the kit-supplied Castrol colours:







Tamiya's TS-8 'Italian Red'  with AK Xtreme Metals' Polished Aluminium' and some hand painted matt black (first coat only in these photos). The insides are all AK Xtreme Metals' 'Dark Aluminium' but obviously only just started, the cage is glued together but not to the chassis in these pics.







Bodyshell is TS-94 'Metallic Grey'. Two light coats and nowhere near shiny enough, so I'll brush on a coat of Klear/Future before decalling, then another afterward. Going to keep the final 'look' a surprise as long as I can, but hopefully y'all will get a kick from it. Not too many 'What If' cars around so nice to do something that little bit outta 'left field', eh ?



More soon.

Ian.

So a couple of days of airbrushing and hand-painting the smaller parts and a couple of sub-assemblies and I'm ready to do 'gluing together'.







Next session (whenever that may be) and I should get almost all of the rolling chassis together.

Stay tuned, folks.

All done:




A fun, quick and cheap 'What If' build - The excellent Tamiya Supra GT built straight from the box wearing decals from the Tamiya 911 GT2. Simple as that. Appreciate it won't be to everyones taste but what the h*ll, nowt wrong with letting your imagination out-to-play every now and again. All the red was sprayed first, then masked-off, no decals there, all paint.

More pics in the 'showcase'. Please feel free to post ask any questions or post any outrage, it's all fine by me.

AFN

Ian.
