Hey! Here's my attempt on the time-attack HKS altezza.
The rims I've used are Team Atlas 2.5W gunmetal.

Thats really taking shape well. Are you planning to race this, or will it be a drifter?

@ EMU
this will be a drifter (sadly). my chassis isnt set up for racing.

Update: more work, but taking shape on all areas now

Front bumper style looks kinda awkward to me, but other than that its coming along very nicely.

Thats some nice work your doing there.
You must have a lot of patience.
The front looks like the Opel Astra DTM car.

Nice! To bad there wasn't a way to use this as a mold and make a few of them. Or is there?....... Hmmm:rolleyes:

I may resin cast a fair number of these if the final product and first cast turn out well. :) I'll also be changing up this widebody after i make a mold of it in HKS form.

update

(its missing two circular
vent holes from the front intercooler vent. as well, its missing hood scoops
and hood body lines. this body might fall apart with any more work, so i may
keep it as is. minor changes may be the door handles.)

Very cool. Keep us updated when the paint is applied.

Thank you everybody!
I haven't done much to this. I tried applying a metallic gray base coat, but then ended up sanding quite a lot of areas.
I've also created / finished applying a rear diffuser to it.

For the amount of work you put in, I hope you paint it some spiffy and unique color instead of some boring/generic one.

Wow, a pretty accurate replica of the real thing since the last time I saw it. Nice work so far man, but you could definitely pick a better color than normal metallic silver. ;)

Really great work kot - watching it evolve over time is a lot of fun! :)

updated! I decided on a color - champagne gold. I might get mixed feelings on this; to one perspective, its a dull color, and to another, it's fitting to a lexus/toyota sedan.

the Tamiya paint code is TS-75.

Primed, and filling minor cracks.

Updated! Trims and clear coat applied!
I'm not the painter, but I've got a good friend of mine doing this paint. Props to him!

Looks great! Very smooth. I'd try to get the fender vents painted or at least dulled out to cast some shadow where there should be some.

The front fenders! This car is almost perfect except for the slight out-of-roundness on the two front wheelwells. :eek:

Before you pop the windows in I would see if you can smooth out the window trim a little bit. Right now it looks like it's applied within the lines, but the light reflected off of it is not smooth, suggesting that a little polishing is in order. :)

Looking good overall! The rear 3/4 is absolutely gorgeous.
