      Model Scale: 1/8 Rating:  Thanks: 0

      Something simpler to tinker on while I wait for stuff to dry on other projects. I have a basic planů
      Mostly I've just been cleaning up the parts and shooting some of them when I'm painting the same colors on other parts. But since I had the body prepped I went ahead and shot it TS-56 Cheeze Wiz.

    -for those of you not familiar with some of the finer "food" items invented by America's Petroleum Industries. Cheeze-Wiz, is a cheese-like substance. The color is obvious.

    Most of the engine has been assembled.

    Your scale selected on this thread is 1/8 but I was unaware a 1/8th kit of this was even available. Is that a mistake or is there really a 1/8th kit of the GTR?

    I saw that, but I didn't select a scale, it somehow was assigned to it when I made the first post.
    I tried but don't know how to change to the correct 1/24th scale. If anyone can tell me how to change it I will.

    Wouldn't that be cool if this was available in a large scale?!

    I spent more time painting the belt and pulleys than any other part on the engine.
    I had to use the factory Sky Blue for the one pulley.

    The bottom of the chassis is done. At least for now…

    I didn't like the connection of the header to the exhaust. So I "welded" them together.

    The engine bay is pretty much done.

    Flocking 2000 GTR Skyline /carpet didn't seem to fit the theme so the floor of the interior was sprayed with textured dark gray to simulate a rubberized coating.

    The rest of the parts were painted as called out in the instructions, sort of… I swapped Medium Gray for the Black inserts. The silver and gray are brush painted.

    I feel like an idiot for missing the "Large Scale" theme of this forum after all these years of sharing here.
    I completely forgot that aspect for some reason and didn't even see it right in front of my eyes every time I logged in.

    I can delete this thread if that is what should be done.
    Or I can finish it out and either way I won't break that rule again.

    Nooooooooooo! Don't delete! It's great to see your work in any scale. You might want to write, "I will ways make sure to check the box for the proper size and scale before posting." on a blackoard 100 x's will suffice as penance.

    I appreciate that Larry. How about if I copy and paste it here 100 times?

    If it's still here tomorrow I'll resume posting, if that's OK. I do not want to cause any problems.

    Oh! Thats what was going on! -I thought my eyes were going bad!
    I was squinting and leaning in on the computer screen.
    I didn't realize you had changed scales!

    Models are models. All is good, and you are good modeler! Great techniques interesting subjects!
