Bodywork is my next focus, gotta say Tamiya's recent releases show a delicacy and finesse I've never seen before. Here's what we start with. The rear cooling vents are taped in place, filler and sanding is required.
95% of the fit is exceptional, a couple of small mould seams to deal with and then primer.
Then on with what is known as the ground coat, a sort of burnt orange colour, not nice.
Then on with the pearl colour coat which is much more appealing to the eye.
I need to address a couple of imperfections but overall, happy with progress.
Zero paints are very sturdy paints, I used them on a grille detail of my car years ago. Even with a lot of highway traffic it took a beating but didn't flake off (topped with Tamiya X-2 clear). Nice basecolor Prof.
