I was refering to the sockets, yes. Was looking for generic aftermarket ones and finally found and ordered some from Spotmodel
There is a nice set of road car seatbelts from studio27. It spots seat belts in different colors, PE lock tongues and hinges and white metal buckles. A bit pricey but worth it (imho). Used it in my Porsche 959 build...
Yep, found it on Spotmodel👍 already ordered
Thanks Peter, this was the Tamiya TS-14 black with Tamiya TS-80 flat clear coat over the top. I was going for a semi-gloss black, but actually prefer how this turned out. I'll do your seatbelts for you, but stop trying to pass off my brilliant work as your own! 🤣🤣🤣
Peter Muldoon, cheeky basket!

veey good! enjoy your builds, is just what I can talk to you, dont worry, is knowledge now! 😄
Thanks guys! Definitely a lot of mistakes here and a lot of lessons learnt. I figured I'd put as much detail into this one as possible and make all the mistakes on my first build. Hopefully that means there are less on the second build, although I know that's never guaranteed haha. I'm having lots of fun and loving the hobby. The stash it starting to build too! 😄
Ha ha ha! Mistakes will follow you like a shark! As a reward for such a great effort on the first build I have two kits here for you.
Very nice finished article. I do love the detail level with Tamiya 1/24.

Peter this is an astonishing effort! I was SO sceptical when you embarked on this your first build with a plan to add detail to this level. You have done so much with so many different challenges I doffs me lid to yer. And to cut your first model in half to display that detail. I'm not sure I would even attempt that myself! Much encouragement from me and I look forward to seeing it displayed! Well done mate, well done!
Thank you Peter! I would never have done something like this if it weren't for my admiration of your builds and the encouragement I received from you, and for that I am greatly appreciative. There were some good and bad choices made along the way with this model, each with it's own lesson. This particular model was difficult for a first attempt at the hobby and there were times when I wondered if it would look better lodged forcefully into a wall, but persistence and the ensuing rewards that continued to come from doing it got me there in the end. This has been such an enjoyable and therapeutic hobby for me. I look forward to building more and more and increasing my skillset, as well as the bonding we will enjoy along the way.

so you are planning a new paint job?
No new paint job on the exterior. Keeping the existing yellow and red on this one and then expanding on that throughout the interior. The interior looked very plain in the original grey colour and these cars have such beautiful interiors so I wanted to try and show that with this model.
Very nice color combo.👍
Thanks! Was a tough decision with what to make red and what to make yellow. I couldn't find any real photos of the car in these colours so it just had to make it up for the most part. Was also very hard trying to match the yellow of the body as its quite a dark yellow.
the interior are the most "problems" on the low priced diecast models . often repaint them also to look more realistic.
