Starting with the Weapons Tray:

Thanks to some spectacular looking posts of the DB5 (Especially Mike - MWG, it's your fault I'm now broke LOL ), I had to have one for myself - even though I am about 4 months behind & playing catch-upBlushing

Starting with the weapons tray, like a lot of builders, I was not impressed with the huge tag on the front of the tray, so that had to go. I used a small picture hanger as a replacement handle & I think it looks OK.
The same was true of the 'grenade' that was supplied, looked more like a hard boiled eggHuh . I filed some grooves into it, to make it look more grenade like, then glued a small piece of old sprue to the top with a small piece of shaped wire for the release pin. I also removed all the excess plastic from round the gun's trigger, so it looked a little more realistic. Once painted, the tray looks a lot better than they way it was supplied BigGrin

Next up will be the driver's seat - which i will add some piping to & then paint....

Good work Jerry, I am glad you decided to do the build, we can bounce ideas of each other.
I am just waiting for 1/2mm thick grey leather to cover the seats.BigGrin

I am pleased with the weapons tray, i must admit BigGrin
I decided to try the wire piping, paint & boot polish option - fingers crossed it will look OK Unsure
I am looking forward to seeing yours take shape

The Driver's seat:

Decisions decisionsConfused - I decided on paint, piping & boot polish for my DB5, instead of leather.
I used some stranded alarm cable as the piping & then primer & dark grey matt paint.
Once dry I used some black bot polish to give it a slightly worn leather look.

BigGrin I am pretty happy with the finished pieceBigGrin

Next up I will be giving the centre console similar treatment & adding some paint detail to the interior…..

Piping complete

In Primer

Matt topcoat

Thanks Mike. It was a lot more work that I expected - just for one seat, but worth it I think, though I do need a drink nowDrool

The third item is a jar to make a washer bottle, the model supplies a lego block no use at all.

I have a bottle sourced a couple of months ago but this one is better

Glad to praise your work Jerry, "Credit where credit is due" as they say!!

Same goes for your build too Mike, some excellent ideas there and lovely work so far. I thought about doing the Aston when it was first released and decided not to in the end... wish I had done now!!!Crying

Kev,

I only started late (about a month ago) because of all the other fantastic looking build diaries of this model - it became a 'must have' Blushing
