This is my first Ebbro kit and i must say i was very impressed with the detail and fit and finish. I did add some extra detailing but not as much as I could. Color is Tamiya TS43 Racing Green. Frame is a custom mix light grey.  All of the parts fit as advertised with the exception of the cowl. This had to be pinned on and if you look closely you can see them although they were painted to match the body color.  I have since cone other Ebbro kits and enjoyed them very much.   The quality is there.  Have others on this forum experienced the same

WOW!!! Great work on that one. My understanding is Ebbro is kinda a offshoot of Tamiya.....and why they share some tooling. Nice stuff.

This is fantastic. Absolutely beautiful model. Very well built. I had no idea Ebbro had a kit of this car. A local vintage car racer has a full-scale one in his collection which I have seen.

Great job!  I just bought a couple of Ebbro Tyrrell's from the early 70's.  Looking forward to building a couple of race cars that Jackie Stewart drove.

Keep an eye out on here.  I built both of those and am planning on posting pictures.  Did both of them at once and it saved me some time.
