    Hi folks,  tks for the kind words.  I'll try and answer all your questions.   Rex,  the early version is Mini Exotics,  the later one I converted from a coupe.   I have seen a CMA transkit, it is better than mine but
     I could not locate one.  Brian,  the 350 was converted from a  Heller P4 coupe using plans from  Model Racing Replica News.  I did cheat a little and cast the snorkels and screen in resin using a  Patto's vacform.  I then modified the snorkels and vaçformed a screen.  Helmut,  I made  a mould for the screen out of   MDF, coated it in fibreglass then vacformed it.  Mark,  yes I cast the manifold and used that as  well.  Dave B

    From zero to hero, the initial and final iterations.
    I have just completed building Mini Exotics transkit for the initial Can-Am version of X 1.  No a fun kit to build but I am happy with the outcome.  I had to make up the windshield and surround as the kit came with the full spyder windscreen.  Also had to grind out about 1/4" of resin from the rear to open the exhaust and grille outlets.  Also used resin 48mm side draft webers from the GS Corvette.  Thanks to my mate Phil for the blue side stripes, the kit came with black ones.

    Nice build Dan and an unusual colour, for a Muira.  I take it you started with the Hasegawa SV and used the standard Muira  wheels?

    Tks again folks.  Tom, I cut it myself but it is around 1mm wide.  I did use black however I recall  reading somewhere it should be a verry dark blue. Regards Dave

    Tks for the kind words guys & gals.  It's the Fujimi kit, the blue is actually Triumph  Powder Blue (according to the GT40 forums this is the actual colour Gulf used) and the black stripe is auto pin stripe tape (sorry folks, cheated on that one)  then clear coated the lot.   There are a few issues with it, particularly around the roundels,  could have done better.        
    Ed,  still have a  Fisher 2F to build,  hope you like it when built.
    Regards

    Just an out of the box build of GT 40 P1075 albeit with the stripes sprayed, using auto acrylic, in lieu of decals.

    A box stock build of the Fisher 512M.  Didn't try to match the yellow with the decal supplied so that is painted.  They never quite turn out as well as planned but it has finished up respectable.
