That's a big improvement on the harness! That engine looks fabulous Colin.

I have this kit in my stash too and have always disliked the size of that intake scoop. The pinstripping does help with toning down the appearance of it's size.
Your harness upgrade sure looks great Colin.

Thank you all..


Got the hinges etc sorted so the tops attached (easily removed too which is a nice touch)

Looks ok to me ... sits nice .... now to think of colours/design ... Elaine (t'other arf) said Orange and Black trim, not out of the question really eh?

Looking good Colin, looking forward to seeing what you do with the body, I really like those wheels.
IIRC that was the reason I bought the kit, with plans of casting them for a Rod truck build.

That is looking great Colin. Nice stance to it.

How about lime green and putrid purple if you want 'stand out'!!!

How's about some alclad colour changing stuff? You can get different from the green - blue that I used.

Or nip to TKMAXX and look through their nail polish?

I am hooked on nail polish now, the colours are so awesome, and so damn cheap at the dollar store.

Nail polish no good for me I'm afraid as I don't own an air brush and they're too patchy to brush paint

Cheers for the input and ideas though chaps

A lime green and Fluo red would be pretty wild together. The stance looks good!

All the model shows and contests I have been to this is the first time I have seen this kit built. Outstanding job on it also. Really enjoying the build.

Details all look great !
That'd be a nice set up to use on a build of something other than the bus (also).

Thanks chaps

After looking at what Curt's doing with his jackson pollock machine (lol ... he'll kick me for that) i'm going to go for a hippy bus type thing ... flowers and rainbows and butterflys and CND logo's and pretty colours ...

It's going to be groovey man ... cat, dog, pigeon, spiny anteater, aardvark ... whatever heh heh

I don't mind the Pollock referance one bit. In fact I think I am going to tag it with a similar name sake.


Do it! Sounds fun Colin, I really can't wait to see what you do.

I've stood in halfords for about half hour Nige ..... there's some nice electric colours available and i did ponder on some ford colours (orange being one of them)

I'm still in two minds whether to go for the hippy bus in all honesty...

Was thinking about a fade from yellow through green to a nice royal blue at the rear with some yellow and red pinstriping ...
