I seem to keep finding these half-built kits... :)

So, here we go again.

That's all I have managed to do so far.

The body was painted in the Tamiya TS colours, they do seem to cover very well.

I was a bit worried about the state of the decals, as some of them have 'crinkled' for want of a better word. However, so far they have come off the backing paper well, and haven't broken up into teeny-weeny pieces yet!

I saw someone else's build on here, and he had drilled out the bolt holes and hub on the spare wheel, so I have done the same.

It does make the spare look a bit more realistic.

Over the next few days, I hope to get the rest of the decals applied to the body-shell. There are some horribly complex curves to follow. Hopefully, microsol will help...

All the best, Alan.

Excellent another cossie being built.

A couple of corrections that were mentioned in my build thread for the M Sport built cars are an additional cross bar in the roll cage and a rear exit exhaust.

Looking good so far. Will continue to watch with interest :)

Hi All,

 

Well, after 2 and a half years, I have resurrected this beauty.

The body shell is missing some of the markings due to decal 'rot', for want of a better term, but rather than leave it on the shelf of doom, I have decided to finish it, missing markings or not...

So, pictures:

I have started on the under-pinning's, and will hopefully be publishing those shortly.

 

Thanks for looking, Alan.

No problem glad to help. Alan, you said you used Tamiya TS colours. Was it TS-15 for the blue?

Hi All,

 

A small update. The front transmission and axle are installed on the floor-pan:

Hopefully, I'll get the rear transmission on tonight.

 

Thanks for looking,

Alan.

Hi Steve,

Yes the TS colour for the blue was TS-15. It's an exact match for the Tamiya Decals as well.

 

Cheers, Alan.

Just a small update. I have got all the transmission in and am about to install the suspension and brakes.
