    I ended up spraying the stripes on, the decals were trash also.

    BMW M1

  8. It's hard to believe this came out of an AMT box. This kit is very well engineered and detailed. Unusually high parts count and plenty of delicate pieces and some of the best chrome I have ever seen. Nice and smooth with no dirt at all. I was really impressed and it went together with no problems at all, but it needed a few scratch-built details. Refinished in DuPont lacquers; engine wired and plumbed; scratch built fuel pump and fuel filter, throttle and choke cable, generator, and distributor, and ignition coil. Scratch built interior door handles and window cranks, shifter, parking brake lever, trunk hold down straps and side lift handles. Very enjoyable, but time consuming build. Spent about a month doing it. I realllly like these old kits. I wish the old time engineers were still around; we need more kits like this.
  9. I orginally bought this for the drivetrain and rolling stock because the car was so butt ugly. Then I decided to try my first roof chop ever; I took 5 millimeters out of the roof. It turned out pretty decent so then I decided to alter the rear bumper as well. Body re-finished in BASF lacquers and DuPont urethane clear coat.
  10. Lindberg kit. Refinished in Shadow Grey lacquer, DuPont urethane clear coat. Engine wired and plumbed. Scratch built alt. bracket, parking brake cables, steering box, idler arm, drag link and front sway bar.
  11. Revell kit, engine wired and plumbed with machined pulleys, parts box front wheels and drag chute, RM acrylic lacquers and DuPont urethane clear.
