Has anyone built this kit? How old is the tool- ? What's up with the brittle plastic? How to scribe good lines in doors .?? There isn't much to go by. How do you rate this kit? I already broke the dash- it was warped- I barely moved it and "SNAP"! Nice-- I can make a dash though. I know this tool has to be old- it has glue together tires. It'd be nice to match up some tires from another kit.
I know how to scribe door lines if there are some there but on this kit -- well --- not good. I guess I could make a plastic pattern and lay it on the side of the body and scribe around it-- anyone ever done that? I can see hours and hours of Fiat in my future. My daughter was with me at the Hobby Shop and I commented on the kit and she suprized me at Christmas last year with it.. She wants me to build it. She really couldn't afford the cash so I kind of want to do it for her -- The thing is that from my first real inspection the kit looks like a "cusser".
The absolute worst thing so far is the 2 piece body. I've been on it with the putty and wet sand etc for two days now.. Okay thanks for listening. If this kit is the worst of my problems- I'm doing pretty good then.
