Meyers manx elvis kit the chrome plating on this kit is sooooo thick and this one has been a thorn in my side originally pearl white but i dropped it after the last glossy coat then star spangled blue cause i ran out of white then the dog spazzed out and knocked it off the table soooo... Sublime green testors one coat it is lowered viper gts wheels and tires moved the headlights (sort of an afterthought during assembly thats why the turn signals are up top) thanks for looking

Upon further inspection much to my dismay and embarassment i realized how awful the back of the roof fit (it was late at night when i finished it after all). Long story short i dropped it putting it in the display case so now i get to work on the roof fit lol

I still like it....some kits have issues or are just not that easy to build and have look right....you did very well with it in my opinion

Tall tires appear out of proportion, but like many things, it's a matter of taste. I was glad when, finally, they re-released the early '70s (?) Manx kit. Thanx for sharing one here. They are THAT rare!

Cool. Great color. Yeah, the roof fit is not good, I had the same issue with mine.

A cute 'beach bomber' to be sure! Great build (despite the roof fit)
