    Great build Bruce, a set of photo etched wires would really set it off!!

    Tks for the kind words lady & gents.  The intake stacks are just stock kit heavy chrome plated plastic.

    Nissan R382 (Japanese Gp 7 sports car)
    Stock build of the Otaki Nissan R382 Gp 7 sports car.  It is really just a toy (batteries not included) but builds into a reasonable curbside and is a different subject.  Thanks again to my mate Phil for the decals.
     

     

     

     

     

     
    Last pic includes Otaki's Toyota 7, another Japanese Gp 7 sports car.  Also forgot the seatbelt, will do it tonight!!
     
    Tks for looking

    Tks all.
    Steve, I was lucky as I happened to have all the pieces in the parts box however I would think the old Revell Porsche Speedster would make a great donor.  If you had one and didn't want to use it as a donor maybe you have a mate that could mould and resin cast the wheels, tyres and headlight buckets.  The buckets were the hardest, I was just lucky, not even sure what kit they came from

    That is a nice build Brian, I assume it is Tamiya?

    Porsche 550 RS
    Just a quick build of the Jimmy Flintstone Porsche 550A body.  The casting is very nice and comes with the floor pan incorporating seats.  Everything else, head lights, tail lights, etc., are from the parts box.

    Thanks all for the kind words.
     
    AFX - yes, the presentation is probably better than "in period" although Frank Harrison's (chassis # 4510) always looks well presented in the period photos
    Larry - the kit came with nice resin wire wheels but the photo etched are nicer!!
    Skip - 1/24th scale
    Dan - love the 50' & 60's sports racers, see attached pics.
     

     

     
    Mostly restored Merit kits but there ia also a Lindberg 'D' type, Fisher Cunningham and chinese toy Lotus Elevens.
     
    Thanks again
