Well it's finished now.

IMO it's a terrible kit and leaves much to be desired, some in accuracy to the 1:1 and many in fit problems, notably the bodywork and the bonnet in particular.

Onwards and upwards.

That's a good result for a average kit.

I know what u mean.  That said, nobody who doesn't know its shortcomings will mind.  It looks GREAT!  Perfect in any collection of racing's history, and it didn't cost big money either thanx to your care in constructing.

Looks good from here. I think you did a great job considering the problems involved with the kit. If nothing else you can build a diorama and show it smashed into a tree or retaining wall or something. LOL

Thanks Ash....... but no, it's rattle can without polishing. This stuff from my local motor factor:



It's WAY better and WAY cheaper than Halfords stuff.

It's not quite as good as the 2k but is a lot more convenient when you don't need such a shine.

You did a great job with that kit, Al. Sometimes we have to accept less than great quality for the sake of the subject matter.

Super job Al. You would never know the kit was less that ideal because you work on it certainly was excellent.
