Model Description


Took this on from a 2nd hand started kit – initial start was pretty good.

Had to use brass tubing on rear axle after the plastic broke – injecting a whole bunch of extra time.

Had to reglue various parts of the iniutial build as they’d been glued over the paint.

Steering column broke while handling, so had to drill out & brass tubing sleeve that too.

Broke many tiny drill bits – need to be more patient when drilling……..

Depicted as a dirty ‘on-road’ model w. tail lights & indicators – Decent detail for an old kit!
