Resin basic kit with a Testors/Fujimi 356 doner kit and lots of parts box and scratch built items.

I was going to make it a race car but I just love these little cars and thought I would enjoy this more a street car that can double as a track day car.

A really fine, fine build. Eyecatching. I like the WIP where a lot of attention has been put into preparing and applying the paint. Great stuff.

Nicely done! BTW, if James Dean's had been a regular color instead of the neutral silver that blended into the remote desert landscape, the accident probably wouldn't have happened.
Great addition to ANY collection!

Great job there, Mitch. I've had that resin body laying around for quite some time now collecting parts to finish. Maybe seeing your completed beauty will get me going.

Very nice. Those wheels are beautiful! What paint did you use on them?

Yep...I've got that body also along with some parts.

Great Job
