Yup, I agree as well. The best I've ever seen this old Revell kit built up. I love the spoon idea for the flares. All round an outstanding build. Very well done.

Very nice job on a kit not known to play nice, and the spoon flare idea is quite inventive.

Great looking build!  I'd bet that I'm not the only forum member who's interested in finding out some more about your plastic spoon/fender flares trick.  Do you have any pics that show that process or any insight about how you did those spoon-flares?

Totally awesome mate. This the only build of this kit that I have seen that looks real. Once again its colour & stance. Love the guards & wheel combo.

I knew you had it in you. Keep up the good work (or bashing). The "How To" on the spoon guards is a good idea.

I am no super modeller so my method is pretty simple , I used new small measuring spoons from a lawncare product . The spoons are cut in half , shaped to fit the side of the body and glued on , I then use my Dremel to cut the spoon back to the opening that I want . Then I fill and sand to blend the spoon to the body . You can use bigger spoons for larger fender openings . Hope this helps . Thanks for the nice comments guys .

Hi,

This is pretty darn awesome.

And I agree, this kit is for sh$t but you made it look fantastic.

Proof that one can indeed polish a turd.

Super 356! I was just going to ask about how you did the arches and you beat me to it! I have other plastic spoons that I may use but they aren't quite that shape!
