Update: This project finally begin...

Chopped up the front bumper.
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Mini-Z%20MA-010/IMGP0559.jpg
Added styrene and putty.
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Mini-Z%20MA-010/IMGP0565.jpg
More styrene...
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Mini-Z%20MA-010/IMGP0568.jpg
And more putty...
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Mini-Z%20MA-010/IMGP0573.jpg

Got bored while waiting for the putty to dry, painted some rims. (F: 3.5N, R: 1W) Color is Tamiya gloss aluminum.

Dr. Kustom
09-28-2009, 04:33 PM
Thank you very much guys!

Update: Sand down the inside of all 4 fenders, so those wide rims won't rub against the body when running.
http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/Dr_Kustom/Mini-Z%20MA-010/IMGP0582.jpg
Also worked on the rear bumper for a bit.

the rear end looks great! lol and glad to hear your going to do some more work on the fit!

Dr. Kustom
10-03-2009, 02:38 PM
Don't feel like work on the Fit recently, I only did a little more sanding on it, then I got back into the S2000.

Update: The front bumper starting to looks good now, but there's still some spot that I need to touch up, add more putty and more sanding, I also made a lip for the front bumper. Just a mock up at the moment. Hope ya like it. =]

10-03-2009, 04:07 PM
are you going to change the top so it doesn't look like a convertable? unless u like that way, imo the hardtops look better, but w/e nice job with the body work so far, and how did you curve that lip bumper?

Are you getting the idea off of the fast and the furious movie??

Dr. Kustom
10-05-2009, 09:36 PM
Thanks for the comments guys! This build will be base on the Amuse S2000 GT1, so I wouldn't go for the hardtop look. Here's a pic of the 1:1.

Update: Started to work on the right side side skirt.

Awsome, I wish I could do body work like that. I did just purchase some styrene and putty yesterday... Im gonna start getting into the body work stuff and hopefully after some practice I can do some nice work like your S2000. I have been, and will continue to watch this thread. Nice photos, keep them coming.

Thanks theroiganalRiD3R1967! Those rims are the grey-ish ones that comes with the chassis set, I just painted them silver.


Update: Stock mirror got to go!

Nice!

Give it that Mugen/Spoon Hardtop roof! Maybe a DMAX style hood, and maybe an intake hole in the bottom right center of the front bumper.

deckerz
10-07-2009, 07:54 PM
wow man looking like a really clean build.

where can i get mini-z rims except atomicmods?
i searched google mini-z mr-01 rims and cant find any...

Dr. Kustom
10-08-2009, 07:19 AM
Thanks guys! I wouldn't add those Mugen parts in this one though, I want to keep it all Amuse. As for the rims, try to look for the MA-010 rims on ebay, EGR, RCmart, tinyrc, etc.

Update: Finished making both side's mirrors.

Amazing bodywork! I too would like to see the addition of the hardtop. I think it makes S2k's look far better in my opinion. Just remember do the Honda justice!;)

Dr. Kustom
10-19-2009, 10:05 PM
Thanks DRFTKO! I would like to make to make this one looks as close as the Amuse S2000 GT1, but if I do get another S2000 body, I will go for with the hardtop look for sure.

Update: Took it outside...

Update: Got some work done of the rear fender. Still need a lot of work though. Also got the front smoothed out, but still need some touch ups on the putty.

I am staggered by your attention to detail. The body lines in that nose has all sorts of complex angles and lines, especially where the fenders flare up around the hood, and you've nailed them perfectly and with crisp clean edges to boot.

TripleXmodder(akaXXX)
01-02-2010, 05:40 PM
Just georgeous. Texan said it all. I love coming back to this thread to checkout your progress. Thanks for posting quality photos also. A top notch build thread. Any plans for decals when she is done? If so I could give you a hand with that..... Free of course, just a thanks for keeping us entertained. Bravo Zulu.

PS:
There will be an Amuse S2000 in Germany, too!
A buddy of mine changed his work from Veilside to Amuse style...
Im looking forward to compare these two.
Its a shame that those two will never stand side by side...
