Nice additions in the new kit, such turned aluminium Injectors, pad printed slicks etc.

I can't help going for the Buick V6, so it'll be a Drag version, but not a gasser, which you also get the parts for.

The front needs some surgery to get rid of the panel lines the real car doesn't have.

Lookin' good! I need to see if I can scare up a pair of these cars. You are off to a great start and can't wait to see more.

P.S. I think you got the pics thing sorted nicely.

I didn't know that kit had been repoped. I will be on the look out for a couple. Great start on this one.

I think I got mine from Modellers Roundup. And as observed, an old kit.

Something different, & the only Opel kit I can think of. A few diecasts about though.

For those rears, I'd open up the wheel wells a bit. Other than that she looks ready to compete!

I'm afraid to radius the rear arches in case I mess it up, these kits are not available in Ireland or even the UK yet, it was a special order through my LHS, so replacing it means getting another one from America at $40 landed in Dublin. Ouch.....

Thanks Guys, I might just file them open a little bit, It was on my mind to be honest, the slicks just about fit.

The kit will leave you with a panel line on the front wing/fender that the real car didn't have Craig, if you use the stock front bumper it's not too noticable, but with the custom front grille it would be too obvious, I can't see any other way of doing it but to cut it off, glue it on and fill it before any painting.




Green paint (and green fingers LOL)

I'm neutral on the color, but noticed green fingers. So, you're a good gardener too. Thanks for the fotos and good luck. Since it's a reissue, test fit things in case of warpage.
