    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?

    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

    Pretty much a box stock build of the Historic Racing Miniatures 450S.  I have added the Hasegawa photo etched wire wheels (the hardest part of the build was assembling these!!), added some internal chassis tubing in the cockpit and the filler caps to the rear deck.  Harold did a nice job modelling a generic 450S for the price.  It is curbside only but a LOT cheaper than the ProFil 24 release.

    Nice build afx.  When is someone going to build the "flip top" 427.  Could be a project for you in the future.

    Tks for the kind words folks.
    Roger, I just went to the auto shop and asked for pure yellow, the tin says M07.
    Speedfreak, it's just Fujimi's MkII but with numbers by Patto.
    It's not quite the correct yellow for Frank's car but I thought it looked OK aesthetically. Just had to spray the stripes
    Tks again

    Ford GT Mk11 (XGT1)
    Basically a stock build but, being an Aussie, I have painted it as Frank Gardner's highly unsuccessful Le Mans attempt.
