Have just finished this one off.  It's from Paul at Fisher Pattern & Model.  Have yet to work out the most effective way of putting the race # on the mesh/grille.  Only problem I had was not placing the oil cooler far enough over on the passenger side thus not allowing me to fit scratch made leather bonnet straps

Could you dry brush the number on the grill ?

Dave,

The Cunningham looks excellent. I saw the car at Cunningham's museum in SoCal back in the '70's and at Laguna's Historics. Paul is a friend of mine and he makes some wonderful kits that are engineered to go together so well. It is a really nice beastie!

Tks for the comments guys, appreciated. 

 

Hi Patrick, I have 3 more of Paul's kits, as I'm retiring tomorrow I may get a little more building time, wife permitting!!!

Andy, I have thought of dry brushing the # on, I think that is the way I'll have to go.

Skip, Just a curbside.  You could open it up but the casting is fairly thick and would take considerable time.

 

Ciao

 

Dave

Nice job on the Cunningham. I love those old road race cars. Your model does the Cunningham proud!

Thats nice work. The Fisher kits are a great way to get started with resin. They build up easily in to a sharp model that really captures the look.
