Hi Steve, BigGrin

Thousand yard stare? Confused

More like a mile and a half.
LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

A leather helmet and a pair of goggles should cut down the distance.Flapper

Chop him up?

Only if you can get him sitting in the drivers seat, with the above mentioned gear.

All said though, a great build.

Many thanks for the memories of one of my first car builds as a teenager.

Regards

LOLAndy, guess he does look terrifiedLaugh he can rest assured though that he's not going racing, he's a private collectorBigGrin

Thanks fr the input Del, I think if he was sat down his height wouldnt be an issue but I sort of picture him standing next to the car "staring" at the engineBigGrin

Thanks for all the commentsBigGrin Have to get back into this one now and get it finished up, too many other kits I want to startLaugh

Fitted the headlights and made a new grill for each instead of the clear plastic parts with the embossed grill pattern. Also fitted the small windscreens.
All thats left now is the number plates, windscreen guard and rear cover brackets and that's it - so one more update. Was planning a simple base for this with the aforementioned figure but decided Im not going to use him now.

Looking fantastic Steve, you've made a really good job of this one and I love all your extra scratch built items!! Cool Cool

I remember staring at a fully built example of this in the window of my local model shop when I was just a lad. It looked great then and it still does today!! Nice one sir!! CoolThumpUp

Thanks guysBigGrin
As far as I'm concerned this one is done, I do have to ad some wash to the bonnet sides and find some suitable cover strap material but this can all be done later. I will stick it in the finished build gallery as is - http://forum.model-space...ts&m=134732#134732. I kind of lost some interest in this when I realized there was a mudguard missing. Nevermind - On to the next oneBigGrin
