Revell Audi R8...

Haven't built a car model kit in over 20 years. When I saw this Revel Audi R8 at the hobby shop I just had to build it.

The model was built straight from the box. Engine and interior were hand painted with Model master paints. Body was sprayed with Tamiya light gun metal. The "flying wings" are usually painted silver but I don't really like the look so I just painted it all one color.

I modified the front suspension to slightly lower the front. I wanted a more aggresive look than the stock suspension gave me.

Overall, it was a fun build and a break from the usual aircraft I build. Up next is a 2005 Ford GT I just picked up....
