    Thanks guys.  I used Evergreen styrene and gib tape from the DIY store.

    Looks like it's the Sprint version, too, with the world's first mass-produced multi-valve engine.  It had four valves per cylinder way back in 1973.

    I'm speechless, Dann, that is beautiful.  Great display too.

    Here's my second attempt at a diorama.  I'm currently working on this startline to display my GT/DTM cars.

    Thanks Dan.  I had already decided to display in this mode, so didn't consider repositioning the windscreen.  Mental note for next time though!

    Cool!  I'll be watching this.

    I use a similar method to Ace, and haven't experienced any cracking after several years.  I've also applied clear gloss as my final colour wetcoat!

    Nice work Pat.  I've used those decals, they are first class.

    The basic subassemblies shown above went together perfectly and were a joy to build, but the exhausts were a little difficult to line up at the rear.  The issues I had were panel gaps where the rear diffuser meets the engine cover.  One of the doors wouldn't close properly (perhaps the windscreen wasn't centred, but it was only out by a gnat's hair).  That's why I chose the 'exploded' view.  I intend to get another kit and try to build a closed version, perhaps sacrificing some of the hidden detail parts as a result.  Next time I'll fit the doors before adding the windscreen.

    This is the Aoshima kit with options of displaying panels  open or closed.  The underlying detail is excellent and a model in itself, so I thought it would be a shame to cover it. For example, the dashboard has over 20 pieces! Paint is a new Tamiya colour, Light Sand Metallic, with Gunmetal as a secondary colour and their red primer on the interior.
