I am using this model as a test/practice run for future models. I am trying panel lines, masking paint work and when finished will do the dirt or mud effects. It has lots of decals and I also need to practice with these.

so far, so good. these sort of cars have lots of opportunities for extra detail if you're feeling up to it.

Few more photos. The kit has decals for the wheels, seat belts and dashboard which make life much easier than painting them. The only down side is the decals on the dashboard are over the moulded details rather than flat surface.

Impressive work, keep those updates coming.

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

More photos as I get closer to completing the model. Leaving the wheels/tires until I decide what to do ie clean/dirt/mud, etc

Panel lines and black edge of the windows. Not happy with the black edge on windows as the masking did not work very well.

The Panel Lines on the bonnet was Craft Acrylic paint. The door panel lines is Tamiya Panel lines.

The kit comes complete with decals for the wheels which makes them look good.

Kerbside kit so no engine!

The kit has decals for the dashboard. Wish more kits had this.

More of the interior. Putting the roll cage together is like most of them in that you need 3 hands.

More photos to come in the near future.

This is looking good, Les, I'll be following along.  I'm looking forward to seeing your dust and dirt additions. Cheers.

More progress over the last few days.

Body work completed

Started applying decals. Some are tricky especially on the rear of car but makes a big difference.

and now decals finished. Car finished except adding wheels which will not be done until after weathering.

Photos of weathered results in next few days. Smile
