This is a real old build from about 1982 or so. It's the original Protar 1/12 die cast kit. I did a little minor restoration recently. The paint needed to be waxed again, the windscreen had broken off and I was missing the two louvered pieces under the exhaust. I got the replacement parts from Italeri. The windscreen is in this die-cut sheet. It was way too short to fit in the frame so I cut a new piece. I just couldn't get the four little hood clips to work. They are just ridiculous to attach to the frame and the one in the front is exactly over the tie rod. So here's some new photos of it.
