Hi!

Maybe I can help.
See the link "It's fun 3 porsche" in this forum. There you can see how I have done with my car, what material I have used.
Also, the link "Extreme Honda S2000" will show how the result will be using my method.

With both the Honda and the Porsche I have first cut out strips from a sheet of styrene plastic, glued them into place, and after that using fine putty to fill out and round the fenders and so on.

At the homepage you can see my DTM TT. With that car I have used styrene plastic to widened the body, but I have'nt filled out with putty, so it's easy to see the "pre-work"

Check out the homepage... http://come.to/mm-racers for lots of customized cars!

Good luck!

thanks, it's kinda hard for me to get some of the materials. so i sustituted the styrene plastic with some scrap plastic. still deciding what to change though.
