    Interesting to see it has a British numberplate for 1965, the same year as my first Beetle! This looks brilliant we still see a few here in the UK, but mainly the saloon version, a friend of ours races the saloon version in a national and european cup series.
    Well done really authentic!

    Wow Curtis brilliant build well done. There are quite a few here still in the UK, I see you've chosen  factory two tone colours! 
    A friend of ours races one of these in British and European cup series!

  3. PatW added a post in a topic Another reason to like older cars!   

    Your lucky that older cars are abundant and cheap in the USA. Here in the UK there are such stringent laws about the condition of any road transport vehicles. Rust was the biggest problem a few years ago, that's why we've had MOT tests for so long and you have to have a new one each year, except where you have a brand new car and have 3 years without a test.
    Chassis, body, brakes (pads, disks,pipes,fluid, master and slave cylinders) ,steering, tyres, windscreen, wipers, rear view mirrors just to name but a few. You can even go into an MOT(Ministry of Transport) Test Centre and if your car fails, you get a red ticket and you're not allowed to drive it away, you have to get a tow truck!

    Wow jb! You've built one as well. I must get one! So you reckon it's nearer 1/20 then? Having had a few Mini's (The first a Countryman with wood sides) it's definitely a mini motor, I will change mine for a VW!

    Your dead right Bob boring is really bad and it hurts the imaginary juices!
    As per my previous post with the McLaren MP4-12 converting it to a road car and using camo decals ,I painted this one instead. 
    Did you notice that I used the smaller rear wheel covers on the front?

    I'm even confused! Especially when I took the masking tape off!
    I put the Merc down on the table and couldn't find it!
    As you can see I like different!
    Thanks for all of your comments.

    Super build, but as an aircooled nut I'd change the motor for a VW and if the interior is flocked isn't that difficult to sweep the sand out?
    I love the kit to go with my manx builds but we can't get it here in the UK! Unless I import it but that costs $27 shipping plus the kit!

    Thanks guys, yes we only had a programme on our TV channels relating to urban camo painted warships ( black and white lines or triangles) in WW2 to confuse German U-Boats!

    Superb work! I've seen the EMI car at the Silverstone Circuit, owned and raced by Michael Caine. No not the actor. 
  12. PatW added a post in a topic FINA Mclaren F1 GTR   

    WOW, superb! A great British made top line sportscar in it's full war paint!
    The decaling is absolutely first class well done 935k3!
