This is actually the second model kit I finished after my 15 year break from modelling.

I's a Revell "Special Edition" kit, with rear tires from AMT 70 1/2 Baldwin Motion Camaro. Engine wired and plumbed + throttle linkage from MCG. MCG seatbelt clips and seat belts made from Tamiya masking tape.

Sorry about the color. ;) British racing green...

Very clean and nicely detailed. I "get it" about the paint but that is close to a factory color. Well done, and keep them coming.

Nicely done. I'm not wild about that color, but hey it's your model and you did it well.
