Flying Badger Posted June 9, 2022 Author Share Posted June 9, 2022 Few minor bits done today. Got the upper bodywork clear coated and as soon as it's fully hardened I'll break out the polishing compounds to get a really smooth glossy surface (I hope). Also dipped the glass in floor varnish ready to be fitted. Other than that I added the coil spring and shock units to the rear suspension then finally got the inlet trumpets prepared, painted and gloss coated in Alclad Chrome before fitting them along with the exhaust pipes: Solved my issue with the missing decal for the main gauge.... I have the Lotus 79 in the stash to build but like most Tamiya the decals don't include any tobacco advertising which is a bit of an issue for JPS title sponsored lotus in the 70s and 80s. To rectify this I ordered the Indecal set for the Lotus 79 which includes dials decals, although the original kit decals have those too so having a spare set I selected one that is close enough and used it on the 25. A touch of Tamiya X-22 clear gloss over all of them and they look pretty good! 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
