Thanks Tim for all of the info on this one. As a very big fan of air-cooled flat 4 and 6 cylinder engines (Multiple Meyers Manx builds) I am hooked

Being in the UK I've had to order one from the USA, (and I was only there last week!) from Omni Models at I understand a good price (plus the Shipping and customs this end).

With all of the conversation on this thread about the plastic colour, we or more I don't have to paint it blue anyway, but can add my own metalflake coat.

From my perspective, Red Metalic or sunshine yellow would look good. Humbrol here have just issued to me three new 'Pearl' style 'Dual' colours in red, green and purple!

And I'll perhaps use my latest fad of Centreline rims.

Yes Joe, the BMF is way too thin for me, so I tried something else! And it's way cheaper too for a 5 metre roll.

Thanks guys. Yes I fitted the strut brace just before the bonnet went on.

Thanks guys for your comments and advice.
Yes Roy they are the kit decals and yes the white circle backing on the numbers is a bit opaque!
I can put some more pics on showing the brace bars at the end of the build. I'll do that in a couple of weeks when I'm back from the Panama Canal Cruise that I'm just starting!

Very nice indeed Douglas, as a WRC watcher for some years, that is very realistic well done.
