Hi all well after looking the great continentals that a few people posted i started my own. All I will say about this kit is that there is not much to it but it has some sink holes around the hood and the rear quarters so after filling them and sanding its of to paint! All going well so far anyway some pics

I could'nt resist doing it in black ! The interear will be painted red over red primer then detailed . Im not desided on whether to use the kit motor and dropping it on the deck wont be hard ! Any comments welcomed

Personally, I do not like the wires on it.  Stock size wires would look better, but nice work.
