Other than eventually replacing the drivers seat, and possibly adding the kit included photoetched pry-bar somewhere, the interior is now complete!!!
Really impressed with Aoshima's efforts at improving this kit.
It was worth buying the new kit to update my old build. Money well spent, IMO.

Thanks, guys! Overall I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. Still unhappy with the backspacing on the "corrected" rear wheels, but wasn't ready to try and correct those. I can't afford to buy another kit if I screwed them up!
All the brass bits are great additions, (although the wipers were extremely fussy, and I just used the plastic ones.) and the new kit has corrected floorpan, doors, and rear package tray.....though all are still not 100% correct.
I'm just thankful a major manufacturer has elected to offer, and continue to improve, this kit.
Obviously sales have been strong enough to warrent these upgrades.
Maybe the release of Fury Road will spur interest in the franchise and manufacturers will invest in the rights to more kits. An Aoshima XB Sedan or Landau would be stellar!!

fabulous work and amazing attention to detail. I'm going to get another Aoshima kit as i got a conversion kit to make it into a mm1 car. i might do the same as you, use the new kit to update my older build.

where is his camo-blanket that he uses when spying on the compound? (I think it was stored behind the driver's seat).

He hasn't scavenged it yet....... :lol:
Seriously though, I haven't been able to source a scale accurate netting material to recreate it yet. I still need to get a proper seat and a couple other minor bits in there too. Thanks for the compliments!

The only thing which will be close is cheese cloth (or polishing cloth). Wide weave but a bit thick... im sure it could be painted easy but
We are 100% snafu....

Holy cow, man! That interior is awesome.
I spent what I thought was along time modifying the first release, but called it "close enough" short of yours.

My camo net was something my brother made when we were kids.
He used graph paper glued to cardboard, then shoved a pin through the intersection of each square. He wove a net using sewing thread and glued it together. After it was peeled off, it was spray painted.

Hmmm... That's a good idea for the netting, Zarana. I think I'll give that a go, Thanks!
