Off to a great start, very nice work so far!

Cheers, D

Rod,
I keep on putting off this kit for reasons I just can’t explain. I guess it’s that i want to actually do the Penske IMSA P1 car, but I haven’t spent the time to see if there’s much in the way of differences. The kit really does look like a winner.

Great start on a rather difficult paint scheme. the white & Black look perfect. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the Red turns out. And all the glass came out perfect as well. Does the kit come with masks?

Just one question. Is the Tamiya LP line of colors their Lacquer line? Been waiting for them forever to be available here, but so far it’s a no go, so I’m still using Gunze Mr. Color Lacquers.

Hi Joel
The kit come with the mask but you have to cut them and the LP are the Tamiya Lacquer.

If you are interested, below a quick look inside the box:

Rod,
Thanks for posting all the spures. BTW, excellent job on the instrument panel, and that seat is amazing.

Rodolfo,
The cockpit capsule really looks the part with so many details that pop right out at you starting with the seat harness.

Interesting how the latest versions of the various GT cars are basically some form of open wheel tub with the engine/trans attached as a stressed member. Add the enclosed side pods and a full width front end clip to convert it to a GT car.

Rod,
The fit looks perfect as we’ve come to expect of all of Tamiya’s recent kits. I do like the fact that they molded the Black sections, leaving just the Red as decals or painting. Which way are you planning on going with the Red?
