Looking great! I love that underside. Are you planning on painting it in one piece? 
 

Johnny.

Cheers Johny, I'm hoping I can paint and build in the three sections I have, she'll, front underside and interior and the back underside. 

 

I have fitted a peg in the back section now and sorted the stand out, I used plenty of resin to glue it so it should hold and the car is going to look much better in the air.

Another update this morning. I have glued the front anitgrave "wheels" to underside after much fretting about getting them square in line, primed the rear section and broken the compressor..... I was moving it to use later and it slipped FFS, could this fix? Probably not as I don't think I could get the thread out the compression tank. I might have a go at it later with the drill as I can not make it any worse.

Very nice! Like the tailplane. Looks nice. What colour?

Cheers, it's a Camaro so it should be yellow with black stripes, so I'm going with that if I can get a decent yellow paint job done on it.

Finished the underside side of the car now and I think its ready to start painting, so it will be put to one side until I can get my compressor fixed.

That looks pretty good!

The lights add a lot.

 

What are you gonna do with the rear wheel wells?

Looking at it I like the idea of skirts filling the wheel opening and just smoothed to the body shape.

Or do you already have something to fill in?

Wanted to put a driver in the car but couldn't find a cheep one until I was forced to go inside a Home bargains shop.... And found this Fortnight keyring figure and after much chopping of of butt and most of the lower legs we now have a driver. I will need to glue together and fill a few gaps but I'm very happy with him.

Cheers, I was going to fill the archers and smooth over but I have ended up with a bit more of a mechanical look with are partialy filled rear arch using some Zaku feet....

Looking good, those lights add loads. 🙌 Driver looks cool too. Nightmare about the compressor. Is it fixable?

Cheers Johnny, I have made some progress on the compressor and it's looking promising but I need to find a 1/4 to 1/8th male male that is longer than a standard.... Typical! 

 

In the meantime a can of TS 47 was purchased and now we have a Camaro in it colour. It's a bit flat looking so I want to do a bit of colour modification when the AB is up and running again.

That’s a nice colour. 😀

Cheers and a bit more yellow on the Finns also painted the insides of the thrusters gold to keep with the yellows and the inside is now painted a very 70's brown.

Cheers but I'm no expert but will help out if I can, I learnt most from building my flying ship and in that WIP, @Will Vale and @Gimme Shelter

Helped out loads. I will see if I can find it. 

 

And after only a few week asking revell an email they only when and sent me this, so I have another Camaro to build and I have 2 massive engines sorted for it. Very nice of Revell and the after sales help.

excellent kitbashing in action and I love the colour you've used for the body it really works well with the shape, are some of those parts you've used from a strike Gundam ? I have one in the stash and some of the bits look similar.

Cheers Pete. 

 

And yes most of the parts are from the Aile pack from the 1/100 Strike Gundam and its base, the AMT 1/6 B1 Battle Droid kit left over from my Mr Bones build, there is also a bit of a snow speeder, an SD Wing body, a few tank parts and the rest is reused car parts from the Camaro kit.....so far!

I wondered what the bits were the are along the bottom and in the front arches and is that the battle Droid ? ( leg or arm joints ) when I saw it they were familiar but I couldn't think what they were, really excellent choice of greeblies as they really work well and make the look feel authentic
