This is a rebuild of an old kit I bought many years ago at a LHS going out of business. No decals and some parts missing. With my limited skills I built it anyway, but was never too happy with it.

Recently I tore it all apart and rebuilt the whole thing. Decals are from Indycals. Its still not perfect, but looks a lot better than it did before. Thanks for looking.

Nice rebuild. I was told, at one time, that if a person is going to rebuild, they should just start over. They probably have a point, but I always get a kick out of rebuilding an old model to see the difference with my improved skills.
