These are beautiful cars. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with this. I was fortunate and came across the metal body kit at a second hand store. What a neat car the Deusy is.

Mike,I have never done a metal bodied kit before!

 

Got the wheels done,they look ok..


The chassis was done semi gloss and the petrol tank has been fitted.


Just a mockup....


I have decided on gold for the body with probably a green interior.

That will look good. Will you do the roof green too?  Tamiya's green is a perfect match for the engine, btw. One drawback with the metal body is the weight. I had to put clear acrylic posts under the four corners to keep the wheels from eventually splaying out.

Looking forward to seeing the whole thing in gold. The nice thing about all the chrome on the car is that the out of scale spokes on the wheels aren't nearly as noticeable as they would be otherwise
