Toyota Vintage 2000 GT--My Summer of Discontent!

Image
Still building a rare 1:25 scale Toyota 2000GT roadster.  News from the bench is not good.

Another month gone--and this time I have an excuse for not spending more time at the bench--namely this build was driving me crazy and I had to take about 3 weeks off!

As I said a few posts ago, I didn't want a seam running down the rear of the body, so I glued the bottom pan to the body before paint.  The 1:1 car doesn't have a seam here, and my build won't either!  Right??  Now, I have to seal the gap!  And it's proving tricky!  To the point where it's driving me crazy!





A year or two ago I might have left the seam looking like this--in other words, like the surface of the moon, but not any longer.  The macro photo reveals all evils! Now every build has to be better right? What you see here is after a fair amount of work puttying, CA gluing and sanding, and it still has a long long way to go. And sadly I don't have a picture of it but, I feel the body work used to look bett…
