Default today i learnt..

that there are tons of clay for modelling and i (as usual) bought the wrong one. so first i bought linseed putty that was for windows.. then i bought epoxy which dries pretty quickly and then this.. its called plastilina.. but i did a workaround by mixing the epoxy and it worked out fine..

i worked on the hood and the side skirting.. since i didnot have polystyrene, i used double sided foam sticker strips to make the outline and filled in my clay inside.. once it dries ill take the sticker out adn start sanding for finish..

here are some pics...

Default updates..

the epozy and plastilina mixture didnt work again..
although it set fine, it started breaking off once it got dry.. anyway.. now im actually gonna go for the tamiya putty which is specially used for scale modelling... but it very hard to get it here... have written to couplr of hobby shops.. lets see..

in the mean time i worked on the interiors.. got some felt sheets and did the flooring.. then i tore off one of my bino puches since that materialsresembled leather and covered the damn seats.. it looks pretty aite and gives a better look imo..

Thanks for asking, this was the only build I did and I had to move overseas so I gave up. I did complete this though, I'll need to dig up the pictures. It's there somewhere.
