If you follow any of my builds, you will know I only do factory stock, my models depict a car waiting in a showroom waiting to be sold, which is why all my builds have no number plates on

It is indeed a nice model, if Revell keep bringing out more classic kits, I'll be buying them, can't wait for the Trabant kombi to come out later this year ....

Well after the primer had dried out I wet sanded the body and body parts using 2400 grit paper, all of the body parts got their colour coat today and will left to dry out for a week before being wetsanded again and polished out ....

Great color choice!!!!

It has a very period looking colorfulness that modern cars lack.
