Dont be sorry, for now or atleast until the engine comes, the hood is just stuck with pieces of masking tape, holds up well enough. When the engine arrives either a hinge will be made or just secured with microscrew/bodyclips

Whats wron with the stickers? If its because they look thinner, i cut off the chrome trim around the lights as i dont like it, takes away from the scale look in my opinion.
If you want a "scale look" just use the lightbuckets and maybe some structured wrap up foil for the indicator lights? - For me stickers always look very flat, if you can ´t see through onto the lightbuckets.
ah ok, i know what you mean, ill take them off once my buckets arrive :)
why are you so gangster hussain?

Bay fitted to the body

Ran into a problem where the bay was too low and hitting the shock tower, stopping the body from going to the desired ride height, fixed with a little samurai skills with the exacto knife. Which led to another problem.... not allowing the engine itself to sit properly, resolved by making a homemade lexan bracket.
