Ooh that is right up my alley! Good scale, correct medium and a great subject too. 612 better but 712 will do me just fine!

Okidoki update time having great fun with this build so much so that everything currently is going to plan had a nice surprise yesterday when I came to drill the engine for wiring I found it already done also did the wheels and used a tyre stencil which worked well on 2 tyres but not on the other 2 d'oh so ordered me some decals instead so here's how we stand now and should get more done today

Decalled and clearcoated all went well I'm enjoying this kit although there are some tough bits coming up there is a wire that goes to back of car which has to bent into shape and glued into gearbox it also has rear lights on but more on that when I come to it.

Looks good: progress a little fast for me but still good!

That's because I'm retired so have more time to do things but it will slow a bit now as we get on with the chassis/engine wiring etc but I'm happy with the way things are going and thanks for looking and for all the comments they are appreciated

That looks lovely! What clearcoat did you use?

 

And I wouldn't worry about the tyres, don't forget they were often done the same way in period, so sometimes looked even worse on real ones!! :)
