Were you able to finish it in 1.5 hours? I'm going to be checking for wet paint to make sure there is no switcheroos!

Yes
Had to do a test body to size up the decals and to make sure I could. With using lacquers they dry quickly, I will let you watch me paint if you want.

I think that was Monkee's car.


Anyways, Tamiya is finally coming out with a Raybrig Honda HSV-010 Super GT. (7th. from the top in the R/C models section.)

Patiently waiting for just the body set.....

Yay!

I am supposing that is a Tamya shell since it has that style plus the beautiful light buckets and the hard wing.

I cant get one washed and masked in 1.5 hours. Then again no plotter either. One of the things that amazes me about guys like Dodgeboy is the way they paint the window trim on the inside and make it fit. I have seen it described on how to get the file for the plotter adjusted correctly. They make it look easy, but I dont think that it is.

No need to plot it, use the window masks that come with body, trace an outline on the outside and cut it out of the mask on the inside.
