Hey all, been a while since I built anything, but with winter starting It seemed like time to start again. This one is a Fujimi 73 carrera rs kit, and I havent made much progress yet. Interior is about 60%, and suspension/chassis are about 80%. Not completely sure what color its going to be yet, but leaning towards white or silver with blue Carrera stripes, or black with red. Going to be a resto modded vintage race car vibe, with a roll bar and a few racey touches. Something like Magnus Walkers 72 STR.
Anyways, here are pictures.
