This one's been on the go (On & Off) since 2013, what with magazine work and commissioned builds, I'd forgot about this one, now I've finished the 48 Ford Convertible and the Beetle 1500. it's time to get this one finished

Magazine work and commission builds for three years...

Is this some kind of new Shirley language Geoff?

No, but after starting this one, then putting it away to concentrate on commissioned work, and magazine articles, I'd totally forgot about it, I've built 6 models for myself after I'd started this one ....

I very much doubt it, the paint quality back then were very high, primer was baked on, then two coats of lacquer were applied, then polished by hand, but I do try to get my paint finish looking factory fresh.

That looks great Geoff. I have this kit too. I can't decide how to build it, stock or racing...

nearly ready for the display cabinet, a lot of the parts either needed touching up after being cut from their parts tree or re-chromed completely, liquid chrome pen to the rescue, for some reason the headlamp reflectors weren't even chromed, that was sorted in a minute or so, liquid chrome to the rescue
