Definitely an unique look. Maybe the lines can be thinner with the fine end of a toothpic?

These decals are from TK Diecast.

It needs trimming a little bit, but as the decals are just dry i'm afraid to cut them now haha.

I'm not keen on the dashboard inserts on the model, they look like a child has drawn on them. They look pretty funky on your actual car though!

F**k you Photobucket.

Right. Been a while but i found some time to work on the M3 a bit and now it's almost finished :D

First of: had to polish the hood as there was a little paint error:

Now that's a finish :O
Posted ImageDSC_0467

I had to paint the TE37 wheels. I was looking for a Hyper black finish. Don't ask me how, but after a black base coat, a very (VERY) thin layer of  "chrome" paint, a clear coat and then a thin layer of regular silver paint (wut?) I think i got it!

Now i had to start rebuilding the model..

(This dust, ooft)

Posted ImageDSC_0421

Almost there!

Now.. there was a problem.. i ordered the TE37 wheels with brake disks, but forgot to order calipers aswell... also the wheels were a bit too small, they didn't fill the arches well enough. :( Had to go for 19's.. My bad.
So, as 1 day later there was a model car show in Holland which i wanted to showcase the model at, i ahd to go for classic BBS RSII wheels which i had from a previous build.

I actually like them.. hehe.

So here is the model next to my almost finished Daytona Violet M4. Enjoy!

Love what you've done on that M3, both exterior and interior! :eusa_clap:

The level of finish you manage to achieve on your paintjobs is insane! That is how I wanted all my models looking like! :drool5:

Wow, this is coming along very nicely. I love the interior trim and the exterior color is very nice. Seeing the Porsche example is insane.
