As I recall, there were many poorly-fitting parts on it.  Those headers are an example, and I agree, they should exit the side.

Modellpularn, I have been forwarded your emails, and will respond soon.

 

I built this model around 1994 or '95, I was approximately 19 years old at the time.  During those years, I was attending many model car shows in the Southeastern USA, and I know I took it to several of them.  Once I was finished showing it, I donated it to one of the area model clubs, probably in 1996 or '97.  As a fund raiser, they auctioned it off at their annual show.  If I recall correctly, an acquaintance from Knoxville, Tennessee, won it, and that was the last time I saw it in person.  And yes, it appeared in an article written by Pat Covert for the April 1996 issue of SAE.

 

I am quite amazed this model is still around, and that it is currently in Sweden is just astonishing!  I have no idea how it made it's way to you, but it must have a very interesting story.  B)

 

Here's a few old photos I found.  I used dry transfer lettering on clear decal film for the decals, and the skyline paintjob was simply masked and airbrushed.  Other than that, I built it straight out-of-the-box.

 

Please keep us updated, I am very much looking forward to seeing your work on it!  :)
