HI all well I'm calling it done, long way from my best work, very dissatisfied with it, mainly the paintwork, but the door fit is pretty bad and the doors won't stay open without support, it's actually a very poorly detailed kit for the money, it's on amazon for 89 quid, I have to say it's well over priced when you could add 50 quid and get the heller citroen (which is in another world to this) not a kit I will ever buy again. Anyway here is the final result.





Ken's the name modeling's the game.

Ken

You are a real tempter with these great models.

This is another i fancied and put an offer in at the weekend against one listed at £100.00

Thought my offer was decent bearing in mind the parts in the kit etc but they came back with an offer of £95.00

Its buyers market and if you want something that bad you may pay the price but bit beyond my means BigGrin

Really enjoyed following along with you on this one.

Just wondering now what other build you may treat us too?

Happy Modelling

Ken,
Man That’s Awesome !! I’ve never seen any American Muscle cars in 1/8 scale beside the Shelby you can buy here on model-space. This is a Revell right? What was the year manufacture that Revell produced this model? I’d really enjoy building this model!! If only I could find one.
Thanks for photos Ken,
Rich
