      Hey...This is not really a WIP Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly ...I'm just going to highlight some steps I'm taking in before I commit to a full build. I am waiting to see what aftermarket items become available and waiting for warmer temperatures.

      Here's whats going on:
      Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly-652-jpgPocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly-650-jpg




      I've got all the body parts ready to be stripped of paint..I'm not happy with the finish, there are already chipped paint on the edges, some of the metal needs to filed (rough edges) There is a scratch on the front clip. There are ejector pin marks Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly that need to be filled..and some of the masking Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly was a bit "wonky" in some places...Also I see contaminates that got on to the paint. Further more..the plastic parts are painted on one side only.

      I want the car to be Matte Black (Nero Nemesis)..The paint has been ordered from Scale Finishes (4 bottles)

      Airbrush Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly :

      These are my weapons of choice...Iwata Micron C+...and Iwata HP-TR2. The trigger one will do most of the large parts and the other for the smaller parts and detailing


      Paint stripping:

      Hopefully this will do the trick.


      Textured paint:

      This is Valspar Make it Suede spray paint on Aoshima Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly 's 1/24 Aventador...I like the scale and texture .....great for the "heads" and airbox on the 1/8 Aventador...painted black of course. The can sprays even and fine and masks clean.


      Finally the seat issue:

      Look how low the logo is on this one

      That's it for now...

    Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly-image-jpgI have had some reasonable results with a rivet wheel,, need to deepen the rivets more but think it looks good.

    Paul...It's looking really good....Did you use Dymo tape as a straight edge to roll the rivet wheel against?
    I'm using dymo tape to help scribe the part lines (in the leather) on the dash and center console..I think I have a pick of the early stages of this process...I'll post. Then I'll put the "stitching" line above and below the part lines....when I get back.

    Here's some pics,

    Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly-040-jpgPocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly-041-jpg
    I scribed the detail on the both ends of the dashboard...these have part lines on the real car.

    Here's the Dymo tape;
    I grabbed the one that was too thin...but it worked anyway...the thicker tape would've worked even better!

    Oh I forgot to mention:

    Pocher Lamborghini Aventador by Superfly-042-jpg

    I scribed the bottom line of the glove box....it was missing...And it is noticeable when the model is complete and the doors are opened.

    Also notice...the glove box is also missing the key hole..a simple drilled hole and some copper or brass rod....or you can just scribe a circle.

    OR.......Tommaso might have already made a photo-etch for this.....but I'm not sure.

    Hi!

    Check that there is no recess. For me it is. It shows in painting base colour. Sorry for my “English”...
