This is the Basic Builder kit from RM. 
Engine was wired and plumbed, refinished in custom mix BASF lacquers- inside and out, clear coated in DuPont urethane, loads of foil required. This was a really nice kit with a lot of options. I highly recommend it.

And they said it couldn't be done... 
Considering it was an old kit, it wasn't too bad. It just needed a lot of TLC. 


The entire body was re-scribed, as well as the interior. The finishes are DuPont Laquer, BASF Laquers, cleared with DuPont Urethane. Parts box, tires, and white wall inserts, loads of foil.

This kit's not as crappy as people say it is. I consider it to be a blank canvas. The details are soft, but workable, with some scratch building. The 17 piece body went together very well and precisely. (I was really impressed.) The only real problem was the front and rear bumpers and the mounts. They had to be re-worked to look okay, but not perfect. The engine was wired and plumbed. Scratch built inside and outside door handles, window cranks, outside rear view mirror, and tail lights. Parts box fog lights, windshield wipers, and tires. Refinished in PPG lacquers, clear coated with DuPont urethane clear.
