Vauxhall Opel Astra VX 450, Hot Custom car

I brought my last four kits of Astra Coupes and I has had my wonderful idea! I has built my three Astra Coupes on our showroom on here. I made my conversion hot custom car with super convertible project.

I;ve cut off be roofed from bodyshell with modelling saw, and leave window frames on and I made my Astra body shell with discard pieces as lots of massive fillers and wet sands

I:ve made discard Subaru Impreza WRC 98's rear aerofoil pieces and discard piece like one of Mercedes Benz E190 Evo II's

I:ve sprayed first plastic primer for body shell, metallic Titanium and Cermine Blue colour for two tone colour splashed with final lacquer coat.
I:ve sprayed this chassis floor with diamond black with overspray silver on surface and final lacquer coat

I:ve made discard Ferrari F40's side mirrors fit it, and I:ve made a conversion side door with Astra Coupe's hinges used with works and I;ve made a discard Ferrari 360 side trim doors fit inside Astra's doors

I;ve drilled in headlight housing and fitted inside little lens and put smoke paint insert it, and lower spoiler bumper with intake tube used made fog lights with little lens. and I:ve made discard Porsche 959's grilles inside intake radiator of bonnet.

I:ve made used all large brake discs with shine photo etch discs covered with inside matt black face. And I:ve made Astra's wheels with bit of drill for nuts and filler in it and sprayed metallic diamond black with lacquer coat, made nice wheels with shine brake discs

I:ve made all flash metal foils with frames and conversion panel of parcel covered. and I made a cockpit with coarse carbon fibres decals with smoke paint with side wall chassis, and I:ve made all black carpet with stick on floor and rear seat covered. and I made side front Porsche 959's seat with conversion seat harness device with red seat belts with photo etch and discard VW Golf's rear seat with discard pieces with fitted red seat belts on and I made rear side trim with discard pieces with carbon fibre decals. And I:ve made front side doors with carbon fibres decal with smoke paint and two tones colour trim

I:ve made discard Toyato Supra's dashboard piece and conversion steering wheel with paddle lever gears, and I:ve painted a satin black on screen for LED Digital with touchscreen and centre console with electric handbrake button and fitted sport pedals with holed heels

I:ve involved my hot custom convertible car on first time, and I:ve made my mind and more ideas

I:ve made a 1/12 Scale F1 exhausts fitted it, like too bold exhausts with hot custom cars

It was project 450 on three months on this year, and I has destroyed two orange moulded body shells on early of this year.

My Astra VX 450 "Super Converitble" was debut to first competition enter to Scale Model World 2014 Model show on this November 2014, and I received my GOLD Class Winner with my Astra VX 450

Why I still build all 1/1 Scale Astras with works in Car factory on continued, Ah! I made four model Astras on showroom on here

Nice and Wonderful colour Super Converitble VX 450 on show

I'm proud with my Astra VX 450 and I:ve involved my project 450 with our HOVS
