Built these a few years ago, now working on two of the Tamiya Austin Coopers

Both were built out of the box, apart from putting Minilite wheels on instead of the kit supplied, Non factory Cosmic MK1's, all chrome inside and out was done using BMF, both were sprayed using factory colours, Island Blue & Old English white, and Almond green & old English white.

Into Minis are ya, Geoff? :) These two look great, especially with the Minilites. I'm anxious to see the one you have under construction finished. It looks to be another winner. This is my second favorite small car of all time, with my beloved Bugeye Sprite being first. I'll have to get going on the Morris racer I have started (I have all the Tamiya versions to do). To give it scale, you should park it next to a full sized Detroit '60s model. It makes it look like 1/32 scale!

So then the 1/12 scale version must look like 1/18 next to the big 57 Chevy! B) Seriously, those are two nice builds of the only British car I would consider owning in 1:1 size. I'm with Randy about the one you're finishing up, I am watching that thread too. Keep it up! :)
