Thanks guys. I use 'used' kits on ebay because as a retiree new kits are just too expensive.

Very nice rescue.  I try to avoid "slightly used" deals on ebay and in forum trades.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

I bought this off ebay UK for a song, it said little used, but it was broken into  numerous pieces. There was no radiator shell so I made one with alloy mesh, only the right arm for the Hot Curl figure,(so I made a prosthetic left arm) and he was broken into three parts, one whole Schwinn Stingray bike and another broken with front forks and wheel missing. So I used the chrome wheels (as one of the spoked wheels was broken)and used sprue for the axles. The front lights have no lenses either.

The Hot Curl figure has a body in two halves, front and back, the legs have a spring mounted to the top that sticks inside the two halves, so the figure can be mounted on a dashboard and it dances as you drive along!
