A beautiful colour for this Cooper spec Mini

( The twin fuel filler caps are a giveaway !)

Love those period correct alloys too ! 

 

It's funny seeing a new BMW mini 4x4 4 door diesel ( mini - clues in the name guys ? )

parked next to an original . 

Over here in 'the old world'Smile, Wink & Grin , where these lil cuties were built ,

the roads suit it perfectly . Twisty hill roads and little country villages . Yeah .

 

3 wheelin a mini 1300cc around the Sussex country lanes gets the blood rushing !

Dad had <--- that black '68 Charger R/T ......

wing mirrors who needs 'em eh ?? Whistling

Lovely job. I am in the process of prepping bits and cannot get over how small and well done some parts are. The carbs for eg.  Seeing your pics has convinced me that my decision to use those wheels too was the right one. That chrome work you did along the lower edge is super well done.  Were there any areas that gave you assembly issues or is that a dumb question because its a Tamiya?

Thanks. You are right, some of those parts are small !!! The kit went together very nicely. You will see, its a fun kit to built

Nice work on the Mini. The blue colour looks great on this. Very cool! These are wonderful kits, though it feels like building in 1/32 scale.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

She's a great looking little replica; beautiful paintwork, fine foiling, and very clean assembly.  They don't get much better.  Cheers
