A very nice 1/32nd kit.........................

Realising that it was a reasonably old kit, I scanned the decals to my PC and sized them on a Word page. Although I gave the decals a couple of coats of gloss clear they still collapsed when trying to lay them onto the body.  So I printed the Word image onto a new clear decal sheet, then after drying gave them two coats of gloss clear and used those in the build.

Absolutely love that. Admittedly, I'm biased as I love retro hot rods and beach buggies but your build is brilliant. It reminds me of the kind of thing Ed Roth or George Barris would have turn out back in the 60s. Great setting, too.
