      My Isis White Aventador arrived today!
      I find this part of any project the most fun, getting the pictures together, ordering the materials etc and planning the spec.

      [B]Specification will be as follows:[/B]
      [B]Exterior:[/B]
      Isis White paint.
      Silver wheels! [I](Controversial I know as it’s down speccing the car but I like to see the wheels and think it suits the white)[/I]
      Yellow Spring Kit PR code: 2MQ [I](I like this, an option at ordering. Seeing yellow springs through the rear window looks cool!)[/I]
      Yellow callipers PR Code: PC3

      [B]Interior:[/B]
      Nero Ade leather with contrasting Giallo Taurus Yellow stitching Bicolour Sportivo (PR code: OUH)
      [I]I’m hoping flooding the dips in the Pocher seats with flat white, then yellow, then wiping the excess off will give the right effect.[/I]
      Steering wheel with Suede leather and yellow stitching (PR Code: 1ML)
      Carbon interior kit

      Exterior mods are based on a company called Capristo who do most of the exterior trim in carbon fibre. It has a matt finish which will stop the model looking too gaudy!
      I shall do all the kits black trim with the Capristo parts. They do the wing and air intakes in carbon but I prefer them in white.

    For all you guys building or about to build Aventadors I have some great reference material for you…

    Here is a YouTube video of a team who disassemble and rebuild a real car to fit in a museum!
    Hey, they couldn’t get it through the door! What else do you do!
    The engine has been run in and so you can see the heat staining on the exhausts.


    A nice breakdown of the suspension
    2012 Lamborghini Aventador: Suspension Walkaround

    This is really cool! You use all the little colour chips to decide on your colour scheme!

    These pics are some of the inner detail. Check out how the exhaust looks used!

    But I think that first you have to add a heat shield to the exhaust

    For this project I'm using some of this...

    Hiroboy.com - Specialising in Scale Car and Bike Model Kits, Accessories, Paints, etc.

    Hopefully enough to do the back, sides and cover the exhaust.

    Nice one, it'll look great!
    I went for a black flocking Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's sheet too, as well as these scale hose clamps for all the hoses!

    Cigarette foil is imo scale-wise a good choice. I would try curtain, easy to shape and glue and than cover it with aluminium foil
    Regards

    It's here!
    Wow, even with everyone talking about how big the box is, nothing prepares you for how big the box is!

    One of the first things I noticed was the lovely 3d Raging Bull logo for the bonnet (Hood for you US guys!)
    Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's-imag0951-jpg
    But then noticed the parts tree Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's holds some of the bodywork very close to it's edge.
    If the cut isn't clean it'll not look good on the finished model. Will it cause me to respray the car? Time will tell!

    The paint on these parts has that 'can fresh' look. Would benefit from polishing

    Use a good sprue Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's cutter ...leave a little bit sprue Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's from the parts side....Carefully sand Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's it flush using file used for fingernails..perhaps tape off the edge so your painted part doesn't get scratched...

    Thats great that the emblems and scripts are 3D metal transfers...and not flat stickers or waterslide decals!....

    I'm starting with the engine as I would never start a project with the interior!
    Cutting all the flash Pocher Aventador WIP Guiddy's off and smoothing off.
    First thing I am going to do is file off the Lamborghini scripts off the top of the engine cover and replace them with these:

    chrome(metal) decals Lamborghini B(silver) 2153 | eBay

    That'll look cooler already! I worked out a pair of the scripts are near enough the 2.5cm needed!
