1/18 renault 5 gt turbo (garya's replica :))
« on: 23:06, Sat 23 January 2010 »
i started on garya's 1/18 gt replica today :)
it will be the same as his ,same colour,interior etc
pics of his car






and some of the 1/18 :)
standard





so then i took it to pieces :D

and painted the engine hoses :)

while that was drying i got the seats out

and because his are black leather i painted them black :)

i then got started on the boot (because his is smoothed)
layer of filler

and sand smooth

then i put it in primer and put it on the car (still needs work):)


at this point this is what the interior looked like :(

oh wheres the engine ???? lol

then i put it back together and painted the wing in primer :)






so that was today's progress :)

comments welcome :D

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 ??

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:
