Good thing is with BMF (Bare metal foil), you can do the window trim after the car is assembled.

Ok, so here is another future release. This time it's Tamiya with a 1/24 C10 Skyline and "Street parts".

Front and rear spoiler and a set of Wats. (I think it is a re issue of the C10 and extra parts).
Should be out in August.

The truck is something i've always wanted, and now!

Hey, just a question:

How do you doyour headlights, and the rearlights, to get them as realistic as possible. "Get a hakosuka with headlightcovers" ain´t an answer, since I aleady plan to do this.

For tail lights paint the back/inside with clear red (or the color needed) and let dry, then paint over the clear red with silver.
Head lights are painted silver from the back.
I usually do four coats of the red first to get the tail light darker.

In the spirit of JCCS, here is my 1978(77) Celica.
(I added a front splitter and lowered the front end).

I wanted to order two, but I have D50 kits, 620 kits and Hylux kits.
So my minitruck needs are "mostly" met.
(Still may order a second Sunny though).
