    Tamiya Escort Cosworth
    This is the Repsol version, built as a street car by omitting roll cage, roof flaps, extra lighting etc. and adding a parts box rear seat and scratch built parcel shelf.  Paint is Tamiya Iridescent Purple/Green over Dark Mica Blue.

    Nice start.  I usually primer all the parts before applying colour, not sure if you did, but I find it helps the paint adhere.
    I have the Tamiya version of this kit in my stash, with the carbon fibre decals and photoetch extras - haven't had the courage to start it yet, but you may inspire me with your build .

    I'm originally from West Yorkshire (where Matt Bacon lives) and speak with a northern accent.  The first time I visited the US, back in the eighties, locals thought I was from Australia, presumably because I don't have a 'BBC' accent and Australia was the first English-speaking country other than Canada that came to mind .

    Not forgetting Damian Lewis (Homeland) and Stephen Moyer (True Blood) are also British.  Anna Paquin from True Blood is from New Zealand, so neither leading actor in that show is from the US!

    Not familiar with that brand, but canopy glue is usually a form of white glue.  Perhaps some US members can confirm.

    For an old guy (nearly 61) I have quite a few kits from the teens - 2013 & 2015 Mustang, Lambo Aventadors, BMW i8, several GT racing cars (McLarens, BMW z4, BMW DTM) although my model collection is predominantly pre 1970.

    Split Enz are from New Zealand, not Australia.  How about John Butler Trio and AC/DC?

    That's precisely why it is a good idea to pin small parts - there is such a small surface contact area.  Pinning and superglue in a very small quantity works well.
    I also use white glue to bond chrome and clear parts, it cleans up with water and won't mar the painted surface.  Just handle carefully after completion!

    Looking good Jonathan.

    I usually apply clear paint before adding BMF.

    Great news Jim

    This is what the chassis looks like, confirming it's part of the rear suspension.

    Good luck Jim, I'm sure all will be fine.
