    Can I have the Hello Kitty Edition, please?

    The '68 also had a more pointed grille and divided taillights. The front running lights (on non-RS models) were also changed from circular to oval.
    With the Astro Ventilation that allowed the omission of the vent windows came a revised dashboard containing - well - air vents.
    The seat pattern was also changed.

    Don't paint the black parts that are supposed to be rubber or plastic on the real thing.
    The frame and headlight bowl, which are metal painted black on the real thing, need to be painted on the model, too.

    AFAIK it used to be the most expensive one when new, but it isn't nearly as rare as a MKI coupe or MKII Injection.

    How's that for authentically replicating a real Alfa Romeo?
    Tamiya, huh?

    Please note that all four of my 1962 Dodge hardtop, as well as both of my 1962 Dodge convertible kits, contain this incorrect dashboard:

    I question the overall usefulness of warfare in general. Obviously I'm the only one.

    You have to replace all the tubing that comes with the kit. It's totally out of scale.
    Also, in my previous 1:8 scale motorcycle builds, I always cut off the pins intended to hold a tube, drilled a 0.8mm hole, and inserted a cut length of clothes pin.
    Not sure what to make of tyres made from two halves, but if they are one piece, always use a suitable O-ring inside for reinforcement.
    It's best to leave the 'rubber' and 'vinyl' parts molded in black unpainted. You can give them a very realistic slightly used look by rolling them in a bit of tile cement.
    From there, it is entirely up to you how far you want to go with your detailing/mods.
    This is what legendary bike modeller Kinichi Karube made from the Heller Honda kit (don't even try...):
     


     
    In contrast, this is a more or less out of the box build of the Airfix (=MPC) kit:

     
    I would assume your and my result would be somewhere in between those two.
    I'm definitely going to replace the spokes with real wire on mine.

    One of those was dug in my granny's garden near Munich. I played in it when I was a kid.

    Same with my 'new' Granada.
    Rock solid, but needs paint.

    Sadly they don't post to the UK.
    Could someone please, please buy one and send it to me?
    Of course I will reimburse you for your expenses/beer.
