Stanced Tamiya 22b WIP
#1
Finally had the guts to start work on my coveted Tamiya Subaru Impreza WRC 22b body. Wanted to keep the color basic to what I think it usually looks best which is blue. Was planning to back the color with silver, but decided not to yet. I like how deep and dark the metallic blue alone is. I tried to get a hold of Pandora lexan light buckets, but Pandora doesn't sell them separate. Planning to make custom light buckets with wrap up lenses to make the details as realistic as possible. I need help on what's a good glue that holds on quick and dries fast for styrene? The one I'm using is terrible and takes forever for a good hold.

I love the result of my window trim I painted outside using satin krylon fusion while using the clear plastic protection sheet as the mask. First time I used this method and paint. Saved me alot of time and tape.

Plasti-weld is great for bonding styrene together. You can also use fast drying CA glue. Shells look great man ^^)b
