Then my project car Pt 1:

My 1st project Pt. 2:
UPDATE: My first project cars are finally done.

After having trouble in deciding what I really wanted to do with my project S500, whether to build and mold the parts myself, I just bought a Playerz S55 AMG to make things easier. With a crap load of swapping and after a good headache from the lights I finally got them done. The verdict: a Playerz S500 and a regular S55 AMG with the help of the SL55 AMG Saftey car for rims.

If you want any closeups just ask.

Here's my new project, that I will be starting tomorrow when I pick up my new airbrush. I hope it all turns out well since this will be my first time with an airbrush etc.

But, I am going to take a Maisto Jaguar X-Type 3.0 and just change the color to an anthracite type metallic grey, near to a metallic black. On top of that I might change the grille from chrome to a polished dark metal, or to the color of the body like seen here:

Question for all of yas, should I keep it chrome or should I darken all the chrome parts or darken just the grille? etc Opinion would be appreciated. Thanks!

I hope It will come out somewhat like this, minus the body work which will be too hard for me since this will be one of my first; but I may consider the body work, once I see if I am capable of doing it.

You do good work Chinny.

I'd darken all the bits myself. I like a de-chromed car..... :nicejob

Good collection as well.

Welcome aboard Chinny.

The dark grey on the Jag will turn it into one mean machine. Get rid of the chrome. Get all those chromed parts painted to give it a racier look. :cheers Good luck with the other mods too. All that skirting will look great on this car.

Very nice collection. As for the Jag, I'd vote to darken the whole thing too- gives it a more stealth look.

Also- did you do the lights on the S500 yourself? Can you give some more info if you get a chance? Thanks!
