I had this model sitting in the stash for more years than I can remember, every time I thought about building it, I started something different, so late last year I got it down from the stash and made a start on it, after starting the build, I noticed that the clear parts were missing from the kit, luckily a member of another modelling forum came to my rescue and sent me the windsheild and quarter vent windows, I managed to find a set of headlamp lenses in the parts box, the body was painted in 1K automotive acrylic lacquer, wet sanded and polished once dry, chrome trim was done using chrome bmf.

Fabulous paint! I wish they'd come out with the "Sportsman's" version with wood accents.

Geoff gets paid actual moolah to photograph things Gary!

It is lovely though.

We should all send our models to Brum for pictures
