A modeler in Canada from Reddit gifted this to us as he has cancer and can no longer build . I am pleased to take on this project . Haven’t been able to log in for a couple weeks now so here’s a pic dump to get you up to speed on the latest project ....

I did that kit, Many, Many year's ago.

When i got to the gauge's, I did not take the decal off the sheet. Insted, I cut the sheet to fit behind the dashboard, and put a grain -o- wheat bulb behind it. The dash lit up perfectly. Put 2 more bulb's in the headlight's , and one in the "old Timey" taillight. Ran the wire's to the gas tank in the bed and stuffed a battery in it.

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

   Soon to be on the bench...

Love this one Dale . The colour scheme reminds me of the nice old '70's JPS (a UK Cigarette Co.) Lotus F1 cars .
