      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Thanks for the tips guys. I'm guessing your explanations for "silver" are most likely correct, that it was in fact a light grey. Any recommendations for a paint color to choose? Where I live, Mr Color paints are available as well as some Tamiya colors.

    What's the deal with the white roof? Was this a standard or extra option on a basic model car?

    An appeal for help: 1960's Morris Mini
    Hi all,
    I'm new to this forum. I usually build model planes, but for this Christmas, I'm trying to build the first car that my dad ever owned, a 1960's Morris Mini. I've never seen pictures of this car, and I can't ask my dad for help because it's supposed to be a surprise. I'm also not clear on what year the car was... I believe it was the late 60's, so a '65 - '68 is most likely.

    I don't know anything at all about cars, so please bear with me with my questions

    What I need help with:

    1. I remember him saying specifically that it was "A Morris Mini, not a Mini Cooper". I guess this means it was a Mini Minor? He lived in Peru at the time, maybe the Morris Mini Cooper was only branded as the Morris Mini? I have the 1/24 Tamiya kit for the Morris Mini Cooper, if the car we're talking about was a Mini Minor, what (if any) modifications would I have to make for a Mini Minor?

    2. He told me once that the color was a silver exterior with red interior. Did this color scheme have the white roof? Going through Google images, I can't find a single picture of a silver Morris Mini - maybe this was a non-standard/repainted body color?

    3. Lastly, if you have any good links to photos of this car please share! (I've already been through the standard google and wiki pictures)

    Thanks so much for your help!
