We have the same in Australia, but it's a 'P' (provisional license). personally i don't see how it helps you be a better driver, it only allows the police to target you. Closest i've found to my first car is a 1/64 diecast two door Luce (mine is a four door)
i like it. the wear and patina on the chrome makes it look a little rusty, which i think makes it look more like an honest survivor car. The only suggestion i have is add some clear to the front lamps in the grille. i'd suggest a layer of 5-minute epoxy to make it look like it's made of glass. i usually reference the 59 dodge when talking about ugly cars (it's not just ugly, but also looks angry)
nice model. i totally get wanting to do a replica of your first car (sadly mine isn't available in scale). i like the little details, like the music player on the dash. Does any of the other kits come with a RHD dash? maybe someone would swap with you if they want to make theirs LHD?
