So with my other projects giving me a headache i thought i would start on something a little closer to my childhood pleasures. I have always been a fan of the japanese cars and the Toyota supra is no exception. This one is the modified supra from the first of the many fast and the furious films. Originally boxed abd made by AMT, im expecting lots of flash and ill fitting parts along with some poorly finished chrome parts and tacky wheels. For the first stage i built the engine and painted and added detail. Next was to start on the rear suspension and differential. Which was then painted and futted to the chassis. A little more detail to be done like picking out the cv boots and diff oil drain bung. Also the front was made up and painted . Lots of progress and hopefully more later before i am away for the weekend hoping to get the exhaust painted and fixed and continue with the detailing on the engine.
Evening all, I haven't posted anything in ages but have recently got in to building cars... I've been building the Belkits RS1600 since November. I was way too cowardly to post a wip, sorry but tempting fate if you ask me. I named my build Project Walker as homage to the actor Paul Walker who sadly passed away in a car crash, one of the leads in The Fast and the Furious film franchise. Naming seems to work for me, especially one with an identity like this. This is my version of the Mk1 Ford RS1600 Escort from F&F6. Finished with Zeropaints Fast and Furious Blue and Hobby Design decals. The wheels are aftermarket from MotoBitz, a real find and I'm very happy with the final colour. It would be great if more aftermarket comes out for this kit, different colour decals, RS alloys, bib spoiler... Bucket seats came from a Ford Focus and I added a cross member to the rear roll cage. Wing mirrors came from a friend spares box. In 1990ish I was driving around in a Mk1 Daytona Yellow Mexico, lowered, Janspeed exhaust and bored out to 1760cc. I might have been a boy racer; probably why when I saw the Belkits kit I thought YES! Thanks also to Pink Floyd, Ozric Tentacles and Public Service Broadcasting all of whom helped me out no end along the way. Anyway here's Walker I hope you like him. Thanks for looking.
