airfix Mini Cooper S

Recommended Posts

Evening guys, the wife presented me with this kit and asked nicely if i would mind assembling it for her. It will be a box stock build, she wants it for her desk at work. What sort of hubby would i be if i said no ☺

So far I think most of the mould lines on the body ready for priming.

I've often wondered what this newer line of Airfix 1/32 scale cars is like. Look forward to seeing this one come together.

Cool. I like when someone wants a model done.

I've built both the Mini WRC and the Fiesta WRC. Good builds, no problems, nice finish, even with all those small decals!

Cheers Patrick, I am keeping an eye out for the Mini WRC as a possible project down the track a little bit.

Another update #2.

The chassis has been painted and the interior masked.

Apologies for the crappy images, I'm still working out the lighting.
thankfully the wife has chosen a basic colour scheme, otherwise i would still be there with the tape and knife.

A long way to go before i am at the level of you guys, but i am sure having fun working towards that level.
