  1. Superb, I have one back on the bench to finish, since my wife bought it for me in 1988!
  2. Bought these off the Bay for a fiver each, came in plastic bags with a decal sheet, no instructions, but they are snap together! The WRC car has it's own decals sheet, the JDM/ Hellaflush tuner has mostly home-brewed decals and a few aftermarket. The tyre decals on both are 1/43rd scale! The roof decals may be the wrong way round, but I couldn't find a roof photo from my research! Vans are USA made shoes my boys used in BMX racing 40 years ago!
  3. Thanks again kapam. Yes the Kirkey seat is from Dirtmodeller, and very nice it is too. then padded with bicycle fabric handlebar tape. Most of the decals are home printed plus one sheet of Monster Energy ones. No the WRC Mini was too heavy and although built by Prodrive near here(Subaru/Colin Mcrae etc) it wasn't as competitive as the rest of the turbo 4X4 cars.
  4. Thanks kapam. The timber mouldings are painted a matt sand colour then given a coat of clear gloss.

    Cheers Billydick.
  6. Yes I've use this background for a few other builds.
  7. Bought as a glue bomb, body OK, rest, chassis, axles,engine, front screen, wheels/tyres all in box. Parts except body hand painted all over so no contact areas, so cleaned off paint, glue parts together, and rebuild.

    Fantastic finish! I' looking forward to seeing more of your builds on here, well done!
  9. Superb! I've seen those on the race tracks a few times.

    Cheers Bill.B. Also the chrome wheel discs shown on the Box Art aren't supplied in the kit. The wheels discs depict Long Play vinyl records as they have moulded grooves in them!

    Thanks Snowman, here is the box top..................... Shame the decals were too old, so I used some of my own printed 'woody' decals where the wavy black and white ones should be.
  12. I bought this on ebay UK about 6 or so months ago. The date of the kit is 1969 so the decals (although I coated them in two layers of gloss clear) would not release from the paper backing except the footprints that I've put on the roof! I have found another sheet of decals called 'Flower Power', so used those.
