    Just thought I'd make this thread ready for this build, already started painting some parts.
    Here's a teaser, see if you can guess the theme:

    Hope I didn't screw the paint job up this time like I did with the rowdy.....also hope it doesn't have tape marks again either, that would really suck.
    So anyway, I began with cutting out the roof and windows, I'll use mesh later, then did a primer coat followed by a white base.
    Waited a couple hours, did the red coat, waited another couple hours then did the black.

    In a couple hours, we'll see what the outcome is....stay tuned.

    Edit:

    So, if it wasn't already obvious, this should be a give away....here's the result.

    Edit 2:

    So I added stickers and some black diamond decals then finished with a clear coat to seal it all.......
    Then this happened...

    Just had to wait until clear coat for something to really screw up didn't it.......blasted shitty quality decals and bleeding ink. I'll work out something to tidy it up somehow, but it will still look different in the end unfortunately.

    Anyhow, I'll save more photos for when I assemble it.
