      Hallo everybody, i am started my Aventador.

      First i started with the engine, i remove and closed the holes for the screws.
      Then i try to make (i say i try) a new support for the pulley's and the alternator,
      because the support from the kit is pure fantasy, and this is one of the few things you see from the motor once installed.

      Cheers,
      Rudy

    Amazing work, without a doubt! But I wonder if all the detail will be visible underneath all these covers?
    Cheers,

    @ Superfly: you find the parts manual on that link.
    @Blacklion 213: you're right but the pulley support is visible.

    Thank you for the support

    Thank you for the support
    Oh my, that website link is a good find! Could come in quite handy for those future transkit manufacturers.

    Keep going with the Aventador, but now the dirty work.
    Because i notice a difference in color between the metal and plastic parts,
    the metal parts have a greyish tint and not so shiny as the plastic parts, and
    you can't remove the seems on the plastic parts.
    That's why i take all the paint off with a paint remover, and i can tell you
    it's a dirty job, but the result is good, so why complaint.

    Great job AirB...I know exactly what you had to go through!..Will you be painting it a different color?....This is your chance to fix any problems with the body parts...I found some issue hiding under the paint.
    Will you be stripping the plastics as well? If you do....please let me know what you use...I haven't tired anything that worked.

    I intend to take off all the paint and chrome off ALL the parts and start from "ground zero".

    Hi Renato, it looks that we have the same idea about the kit, it's a good base to start with.
    But when you start from "ground zero"you can do more with it, you can remove the seems and other inperfections hidden under the thick layer of paint especially on the metal parts.
    The paint remover i use is a product from Polyfilla and calls "Extreme paint remover" but i think you can only buy it in
    Belgium (where i live).
    I leave the paint on the plastic parts just sand Another Aventador by AirB it with very fine abrasive paper and water, i don't think it is necessary to remove the paint, just break the gloss.
    The plan is to make a yellow one (giallo evros from Zero paint) with a black interior

    I hope so, there is so much that can go wrong.
    Modelbuilding is my hobby for more then 45 years, and every model is a challenge,
    that's why building models is so great.

    Almost everything is painted with Mr Surfacer 1200.
    No difficulties with the plastic parts, in the afternoon i spray the parts that remains.
    After this i start to work on the engine.
