Just trying to get a feel for 1/24 scale and yes, this is the shambolic revell london taxi kit a.k.a. Austin FX4 (it's basically a re-release of a '60s toy, there is still the box for the battery and on/off switch molded under the rear seat. Shocking I know, but then it is a cheap kit.) That's the interior done, all of it.... Attached File  image.jpg   117.22KB   31 downloads Attached File  image.jpg   122.41KB   30 downloads

Some paint on the single moulding for the block, plumbings and batteries (two 6 volts batteries to make 12), apologies for the red and green in there but the rest of this car is going to be black. Body has a single coat of primer brushed on and been sanded, you can see where i had to file down some ejector marks on the front wings. I'm considering removing the bonnet hinges, they look out of scale to me. Comments welcome :)

Ok, matt black brushed on, sanding that when its dry. Then another coat of matt black and a couple coats of shiny clear stuff. Decided im liking 1:24.
