Tamiya Box. Kit No. 213

Pieces provided inside box

For the Evolution I decided to start working on the body and here it is primered in Plasti-Kote white primer

Then I air-brushed a metallic purple nail polish color which I mixed with an electric blue pearl powder

Then it was sprayed with Plasti-Kote's Clear Super

Next up was the undercarriage. Here it is sprayed with Plasti-Kote white primer

After applying the colour, I modified the disc brakes, hubs and rims so that I could lower the Evo by 2mm

It was then assembly time, so here's the finished undercarriage

Finally, I made a quick mock up of the body over the undercarriage to see the lowering achieved

Here's the finished Evolution interior, which was the first fully airbrushed for me!

Then I attached the OZ decals to the rims, clear-coated them and finally painted the nuts in blue

Finally I assembled the rims, interior, radiator and intercooler to the undercarriage

Then I masked the window frames and roof railings which I then painted in semi-gloss black

Once the semi-gloss black was dry, I removed the masking tape and then polished and waxed the body

Finally I masked the window trims, applied semi-gloss black and added light-black tinted tape to the rear windows

All that remained at this stage, was to fully assemble the Evo VI. So here is the finished Lancer onto the garage diorama
