It’s been a while again. I’m finally settling well at my new place and getting used to my new life. Didn’t really get a chance to resume full modeling after the wedding due to the holiday seasons and increased workload. Anyway, I finally have some new WIP to post.
Ah the R35, dreams of many a car enthusiasts like myself. Since I probably won’t get to own the real one (anytime soon), the next best thing would be to build the model. I’m building the FUJIMI kit because it has really exaggerated wheels and it’s cheaper than Tamiya’s offering. The idea is to build a mean street car that looks totally road legal but fully tricked out. Of course, this will lend very nicely to PLAMO’s Zhng Your Car GB.
After the opening has been cut to shape (larger than the inlet piece), insert the inlet and glue in place after positioning. Not visible from this shot but the rear is heavily reinforced with scrap styrene to make sure the new piece stays in place.
I still have to carefully inspect and fill up minor air pockets but this is basically it. Rinse and repeat for the other side.
