Well I am calling this one done! Is it perfect? No, but it looks Ok at shelf distance. I finished this the way I would like it if it were my car not exactly the way the original may have looked. At any rate it is time to move on! I hope that following me do this may have entertained you if nothing else, goodness knows there was enough drama.

Looks perfectly good to me.  I looked the pictures over several times and couldn't find any issues!  Nice car, nothing wrong with building it the way you'd want it in 1:1.  I do that with my cars too.

Really fine work!  Love the color & those opening doors. Would love to put the board in the back & head to the beach!

Hi Daniel,   What a treat to see this one complete !!!   You have opened my eyes to what can be done to a diecast model.  Really enjoyed watching you use brass, plastic, pop metal and putty to create this beauty.

 

      Congrats Sir

Thanks guys. I did learn something from doing this one. Maybe the next project will go smoother!

Meanwhile, I may resurrect the apocoliptic Pajero and work on it for a while.

You know, for some reason, I could picture Jim Rockford tooling around in something like that.

This car is absolutely stunning! Great job and I've followed this build all throughout the process. Yes there was drama but it was a learning curve. What's next on your modeling table?  B)

Thanks everybody. Jason, I have a dragon diorama on the go but there are some techniques I may want to try on the apocoliptic Pajero so I think I will get back to it.

I'll never understand why G M never did this one even though it would have been a limited sales edition .
