Hi!

Just got this picture from Finland.

Posted Image
I don't know which donor that would be the best at the moment, but sees there are missing tires, springs, kingpins, and rear axel. Price will be about 100 euros if compared to theire other kits with equal details. Air-Trax is a company in evolvment. The more practice in the technics of casting, the better they will be doing so. With this I mean some of theire older castings need more work then some of theire newer.
This Opel is mastered by Juha Airio, and I got the picture from him. If interest in theire models, I'm willing to help. No extra charges.

Juha is a very busy man. I'm just happy he find time making some few castings of his excellent masters.
He is also a gentleman of first class, tries too share as much he manage, but he has to set limits on his time.

But he might be a member here, just reading what we say. I know he like to see what is happening in the modelcar community. :)

Tor, I have never seen a bad job out of Juha . I would imagine the car goes together with no problems at all. Ed Shaver
