I had started out this build with the intentions of doing the TE71, quad round lights(early version). Well all I can say is, it doesn’t look good if you follow the instructions. But before I get to the issue at hand. A few pics of some details of the interior.
I got as far as working on the grill, I stripped the chrome off and painted it metallic black. I added BMF for the lights, painted a pair of them yellow for fog lights and glued the lights on as well. I thought I can just ignore the fact that the corner lights area doesn’t look right. If I hadn’t painted it black, the chrome would stick out like a sore thumb. Maybe painting it the body color then it would be ok..nah not in my mind.
So I dug out the other option, the square lights with matching grill. Which the lights themselves needed work done.
Once I got done with the front, I continued on with the rest of the build. With not much left but to glue parts on, I had finally finished the now TE71 late version.
Although I wanted to call it quits with this body and start with a new one, but I am glad I didn’t.
I have several of these Aoshima Corolla kits and I will build them to proper specs from now on.
Thank you for passing by.
