  1. Just finished this after a great deal of work: it's Starter's 1/43 Bussi Racing Rondeau M382 from the 1985 Le Mans 24 Hours. Driven by Jean-Claude Justice, Bruno Sotty and Patrick Oudet, it qualified 34th and finished 18th. This car, chassis #003, competed in five Le Mans 24 Hours, from 1982 through to 1986. The kit is probably the oldest Starter kit I've made, dating from 1983 and with revised decals to depict the 1985 car. It took a lot of time to get its pebbly surface and wobbly panel lines looking vaguely OK and I'm happy with the result, even though it's still a bit scrappy in places. Seatbelts and headlamps are aftermarket, with crash-moulded headlamp covers (kit items were like ricepaper) and side windows from clear acetate (ditto). Radiators from Meri. Surprisingly for a 30+ year-old kit, the decals didn't crack and so they are all as-supplied and not at all yellowed. And a couple of photos to show how it was when I got it (from eB8y, dead cheap); Typical '80s resin: lots of bubbles and flash! And not much in the way of instructions either. But I used to like that aspect: meant you had to plan ahead and do a bit of research! And this is what it looked like after I thought I had straightened-out the bodywork!!! Panel lines were soon filled and then the hard work really began. Thank heaven for Mr Surfacer:
