Nice subtle additions right there Curt.
PE front wires, Metal jam nuts on the radiator hoses and real metal velocity stacks.

I notice you have a bunch of the Fujimi wheels and tires from the GT40 kits that you have used on your builds. If you have anymore I could put them to good use.

Exactly! Front wheels look great. Only weak spot in the model is lack of flanges on exhaust pipes at engine block. If the block had been same color as pipes it wouldn't matter, but it shows up when engine is as expose as here. Overall, darn cute. Looks like a '70s MPC kit originally.

I agree it is just a cute little kit/build, something I just banged together one weekend as a pick me upper.
harron, totally agree the exhaust needs flanges, and ya I think this is an MPC kit.

Mitch, the rear wheels are actually 1/20 F1 wheels from a Tamiya Honda kit from the '60's era. I don't have a mold for these yet, these are actual kit wheel. I still owe you some wheels from the GT-40, haven't forgot, just don't have any suitable resin right now.

Thanks for looking in guys.
