Nice clean build Jason , love the stripes and checks in the same colour , it blends together nicely .

The only suggestion I could make would be to snip off the sliding window catches since you've taken the windows out (but that's only because I'm a rivet counter with mini's , it won't matter to anybody else ;) )

Nice job on the masking and painting! The engine is always a surprise to me on the Mini, I always expect to see two little hamsters going around in a wheel. :lol: All kidding aside, the engine looks great!

Very nice work on your mini jason, the paintwork is excellent and the stripes and checkers make it stand out from others.

I may be a B-I-G guy (6'3", 275#), but I've always liked small cars. They don't call me "Corvair Jim" for notyhing, you know. I'm a fan of the Mini because they're "Smaller Than Small", but I stil fit in them just fine. I got a couple of Tamaya Minis in a swap a few months ago. This model might be the kick in the pants I need to actually get going on one of them... Great Job!
