Ok to prove I’m completely and utterly crazy.....I just couldn’t help myself! The urge to build this has just too great and seeing the other racers and with the delays in starting the Cavalier.......... Actually to say I’ve had the urge to build this is an understatement, have been playing with it regularly and now I’ve finish my 3/1 roster I have the time to really think about it...now with this STGB the perfect opportunity! I’ll make no promises at this stage that I’ll finish it in time though! This should for the most part be a fairly simple build as the quality of the moulding is just first class, way better than most plastic stuff even!! Trail fits have shown that there will be very little filler required and everything just fits...no trimming even!! The biggest part of the build will be the paint job and finish, which I must say is a bit daunting! Enamels and Acrylics I don’t think will cut it for this, weapon of choice for painting will be Lacquer and probably automotive! I use to use it a lot with 1/24 & 1/12 car models and you could get mirror finishes quite easily. Plus being resin the lacquer won’t eat the plastic....actually if you’re really careful and light with the spraying you can apply lacquer straight to plastic without dramas.......just very light couple of coats first. The only issue I have with the model is that the tail wheel is missing...spares box of aftermarket for that! This won’t be in a rush to build this and if I don’t finish in time it’ll go into the WIP thread. Well here we go!
