Wow, this is stupendous! I hadn't seen it before so I had a long look through your work-in-progress on this car. I really enjoy your detail painting. Every area of the model is perfect.

It is a really old Italeri kit. I found it on e-bay. I would imagine you would be hard pressed to find one these days.

Here in the U.S. only the gull wing coupe by AMT was available. In either form it's a great model. I can't say I agree about all the design elements of it (headlights/covers especially) but it makes for a great model anyway!
