Tamiya Mk4 VW Golf....'personal barn find'
Posted 06 July 2007 - 03:58 AM
Back story: I painted the body with actual VW 'cosmic green' lacquer shortly after I left the VW dealer(2000 or 2001), I selected the Fujimi wheels, and finished the chassis plate off.....then I lost the inspiration and packed it away.
Fast forward to 2007: A little wet sanding, some Tamiya TS-13 clear and a little fiddling, and it's almost complete. I need to add a rear muffler, the BBS center cap decals and license plates, and it gets the official 'DONE' stamp.
A 'slump breaker' build always feels good to wrap up. 8)

Steve - The emblems did come with it, and they are very nice. There are also a pair of 'V5' emblems and one 'GOLF' emblem. I'm saving the Golf one for a Mk1 I have in the works and we never got the V5 engine here anyway, so the rest of them will not get onto this car.
