and painted the engine hoses :)
(http://i49.tinypic.com/20v0nbr.jpg)
while that was drying i got the seats out
(http://i46.tinypic.com/b6sz0p.jpg)
and because his are black leather i painted them black :)
(http://i49.tinypic.com/2poejxs.jpg)
i then got started on the boot (because his is smoothed)
layer of filler
(http://i46.tinypic.com/wcon41.jpg)
and sand smooth
(http://i48.tinypic.com/2sbwrxy.jpg)
then i put it in primer and put it on the car (still needs work):)
(http://i50.tinypic.com/2vwbb6q.jpg)

at this point this is what the interior looked like :(
(http://i47.tinypic.com/qyesmt.jpg)
oh wheres the engine ???? lol
(http://i49.tinypic.com/2uqyvza.jpg)

good stuff mate cant wait to see it when its done.how are u going to do my alloys tho? lol would that be hard.also my water resovouir is now red lol so if its possible could that also be painted red if not its ok as i see u are putting a lot of work into it mate.keep me updated well done. :D  :D
Title: Re: 1/18 renault 5 gt turbo (garya's replica :))
Post by: yojimsindahouse on 23:54, Sat 23 January 2010
oh yeah forgot about the alloys :(
well got 2 options on them
1. paint the centers of the wheels that are on it raider blue
2. buy some lookalike alloys for it off ebay but that will add to the cost of the overall price :(
also the alloys of ebay wont turn round
which one do you think best ??
Title: Re: 1/18 renault 5 gt turbo (garya's replica :))
Post by: garya on 00:14, Sun 24 January 2010
i am not botherd mate just decided what you think would look best if u think the ones of ebay would be better then i will cover the cost but if u think that the standard ones look better then keep them on not botherd mate.have u sold many of these mate its a good thing u have going on here.cheers mate.

Post by: yojimsindahouse on 00:23, Sun 24 January 2010
well the cheeper option here is the standards and they dont look too bad when painted up
like on ASH_LEE's car , plus if i keep the origionals they will still turn .
wont be too much of a difference so i think we will go with the origionals

and i havent sold much apart from the 3.6 v8 escort which i sold for 70 i have always just modified models for fun :)

I know these models are quite big but I'm amazed by the detail and realism of them - even the rear panel with the arch removed looks like a real one! :lol:
