Old Heller kit, not bad at all for an oldie.

Not my shining hour but it will do as an extra car in my race car dio when I start it later in the year.

The vents on the sides of the bonnet should be black and have a chrome surround. Also the leather strap should be some shade of brown/black. The detail is a bit sift for BMF so I haven't done these yet as I may decided to display it in the dio with the bonnet completely removed.

Any way it is what it is and here it is!!! LOL

I think it turned out great Al, and you can always go back and add the details on the hood later.

One question. It looks to me that you have a choice on the car number. The 2? looks like the builder can trim it to be a 2,6,9 or 7 and the 8 to an 8 or a 3.

Do the instructions mention anything?

That's the way they are in the kit decals placement diagram Mitch but you are correct, they could have been cut that way.

Got a bench Ash but my facilities are severely restricted at present. Hopefully I'll have my new modelling room up and running full steam ahead in a couple of months or so.

That's a sweet little build Al. I really like the "stripped" look, clean and simple.

I think its a lovely model Al and it will look fantastic in the diorama.
I patiently await the resurrection of 'Mile End Garage'.
