I use Citadel paints on things such as clothes, gloves and seat belts because they are a low sheen. They are paints from Games Workshop that are used to do board game figures used for example in wargaming. I dated a pretty attractive nerd a while back, and that's how I learned about these paints.
Here’s the finished interior. The helmet is Testors gold; I used Testors gloss red on the roll cage and fire extinguisher on this Parma interior.
I used the Shoe Goo to assemble all the body pieces. I put a small sheet of styrene in the front where the hood mates up to the body. I also used a sheet of styrene painted red to fill in the rear tail light openings.
Now that the body is complete its time for final assembly. The motor bracket on the Womp chassis is designed for 16D motors so we need to open up the bushing hole in order to elevate the rear of the TSR D3 motor that I will be using.
The lightest car that I race with an FCR chassis is 170 grams ; this one comes in just below 135. You can always add weight in the tuning process to suit your driving style. From the test laps that I took, I would race it as is.
