The model of the car (prod. 1993) that I still have since 2010.

 
The model initially, with a very thick paint hiding the details.


I split the model. I shaved some metal from the front for conversion to Serce grille.




I stripped the paint with paint remover gel.


 
I cleaned the whole body.




I applied polyester putty at the front grille and tail lamp sections.




I applied a primer for testing.

 



I prepared the front grille on the computer and printed on paper. I made a trial for reflectors with 0.2 mm thick aluminum foil, and being satisfied, I glued the paper on the foil, made the reflectors and filled them with UV-curing nail builder gel.




A test fit of the front grille on the body.



I drilled new holes for the front bumper. I made the front and rear bumpers from styrene sheets and rods.



I made headrests from styrene and added them to the front seats. Then I painted the seats.


The real car does not have quarter glass so I trimmed them off.


I painted the top of windscreen clear blue.



I fitted the inner tub on the chassis.



I prepared the mirrors from styrene and glued them in place.


I made the side bumper rubber strips from black sticky foil. The taillights were made in the same way as Murat-124 model. The front turn signals are made by painting clear orange over aluminum duct tape. I made the rear "Serce" script as decal and applied.
