Let me be the first to say some very fine workmanship is going on here … excellent paint and decal application. I never realized just how big a mill was in this car and with nitrous to boot!

Thanks gents.Big Smile

 

 

on this kit I am using mostly humbrol cans.

Got to fix up the blower scoop,there was a gap at the front...

 

 

Apart from foiling the window frames I had to mask and spray the windows as they have an alloy? frame plus decals.

 

Plus the decals on the shell are now done.

Started on the inner body/chassis,it is a case of glue one joint and leave it to cure and so on...

 

But it is taking shape.

 

Body and chassis together for the first time!
