    Well, let me tell ya the more I look at this the more amazed I am. I'm a little familiar with IMC (Chaparral 2E) kits. WAYYYY before their time and refinement. This model is just spectacular, the little things really pop... the whole light set up, amazing. the nice little flair in the front fender, I could go on and on. just incredible! OOPS I was under the impression this was the IMC model, still and all a very beautiful kit. I have been out of the loop a few years still trying to get back into the groove here. I've been making a lot of these mistakes lately better to lay low, everytime I say something... well... still a very beautiful model like I said.

    I included some photos of mine. I wished I could help in the instructions department I am pretty positive I didn't save the instructions. I will scour around and check though, just to be on the safe side.

    Thanks you guys, first build in 20 years. I chose NOT to polish it out for 2 reasons A: the paint turned out pretty good( after all it's a racing car not a Delahaye) & B: too many little potential polishing problems on this, I'm doing a good old Treatment polish & wax and calling it a day. I will get better photos I did some things in the tail end and just a few other things, interior, etc.. Oh I also scratch built the chassis, not suspension, just straight axles, not sure if I am quite ready for that stuff yet after the layoff. I used the chassis on the IMC 2E and the photos in Falconers book for reference. I also used a spare Monogram 2D "tub", the Arii supplied one was just not quite right..

    NIIICE! that is some very smooth black paint, and we all know nothing looks better on a racing car than a nice black paint job and this is a nice un! Good Stuff.
