Simple kit, painted w/ Go Mango from Testor's, no clear. Very old mold, actually had to rescribe a lot of the moulding detail around the windows in order to BMF a little easier once the paint is in place. Bumpers were Alcladed and wheels were reworked so that they would not stick out so much. Fun build though!! :D

Nice clean example of an early (often forgotten) sport compact!

 

Great job!

Saw your review of kit in the current issue of SA and wondered about the plug wires ... aren't review kits supposed to be built box-stock? Looks good, though!

Hey, stop thinking out loud...... :lol:  :lol:

Ditto from a Knoxville guy.

Many years ago, I thought this would be cool to find as a 1:1, but would need larger wheels. I must say that this is a terrific build, but I don't think it looks right with the larger wheels in the build.

Great model!  I always thought these looked like 'mini' Corvettes, neat little cars.
