Managed to get this one finished today, it's the Later release from Revell AG, it was painted in the original BMC shade of Fiesta Yellow, with the powder blue interior .... the chrome on the wheels were stripped and redone using Alclad lacquer.

Your build has come out great Geoff.  I can imagine it zipping round the roundabouts and some lanes near Longbridge.

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

After all this time, I get contacted through my website from Tamiya Model Magazine, they want me to write an article on this little Mini Cooper .....
