I’ve finally finished this. I absolutely love this car and the kit. I will be doing another one in the future. Now that I know the kit better I can do some add-one next time (like opening the rear grille ala @Dann Tier

Speaking of whom...thanks for the brown panel accent tip.

If I may, I'd like to share the good news here aswell:

I'd like to come back on this honeycomb grille issue if you don't mind, Dann. I contacted a small German specialist for PE aftermarket parts regarding this. He's doing quite a lot of parts for American car kits actually. I asked him if he was interested in making these PE parts that are so dearly missed on the market - and he agreed to do it!

At this stage he is creating the design that will become the master for the PE parts. There will be a bigger and a smaller version. See the images:

BIG:

SMALL:

The bigger one will have honeycombs in size 4.3mm x 1.5 mm each - perfect size for the Miura! The smaller one will have honeycombs in size 2.8 mm x 0.80 mm each, designed for smaller grilles in modern cars like the Ford GT 2016. Both products will come in size 88 x 44 mm net, 92 x 54 mm with the frame. The products will be available for purchase in around 4 weeks time.

Again, I hope you don't mind me showing this here, Dann, but I find this to be good news to all modelers who don't have skills (and nerves) good enough to drill the grilles open... :D

Just to point out that I don't have any commercial ties to this, but if someone should be interested in this, I'll gladly help. Shipping to the US won't be an issue...

That's GREAT news!!!, I will definitely be interested!!
