It is time, time to take a second take at the Aventador. Reviewing it for the IPMS, I built it box-stock, no alterations. This time, I am going to built it my style. But I am not going into extreme detailling. I will alter parts, replace some, scratch some, but will not add any (way expensive) upgrade parts or transkits.
The paint is going to be changed as well, I have a nice idea. Where I usually going for custom, Lamborghini did it already for me in one of their special editions of the Aventador. I’ve never seen nor heard anything about this particular edition, but searching through internet I stumbled upon it.
I’ll show later what I have in mind.
First some shots in-box:
And today we start! Beginning with the interior; I found some heavy mold lines and got rid of them, making the parts appear a whole lot nicer. Thankfully, Pocher put the locatorpins on non-visible sides, so that makes it easier. But the plastic Pocher uses, is hard and not very modeller-friendly.
I also filled the pedal holes for the LHD version
It took me 3,5 hours to sand these parts…..
This is how the interior looks box-stock, pretty grimm and without a lot of depth.
Into the paintbooth and adding a coat of primer,
And finishing with some earth-tones for the interior, I faded a bit with the airbrush to get some depth into the seats and leather parts.
And this is the interior after some basic-painting. I’ll add some more details and washes later.
