Mini Cooper

Recommended Posts

I built this little bugger quite a while ago. 

Dusted it off, replaced the missing headlight and took a few pics before it got tucked away again. British Racing Green with an off-white roof, it was done with single layer automotive urethane.

Somewhere between the dusting and the photos, the left door handle went MIA. Reward offered...

Comments always welcome.

That reminds me; I have three different versions of Tamiya’s Cooper to build...

Detailing that teeny weeny A series engine is inded tricky. Almost like working on a 1:32 compared to the detroit iron around here!

Good job

Fantastic little bugger!!!....I could build a million of these!!!....but why packed away again??

Actually, it got tucked away in a proper case and is sitting in the cabinet, never to need dusting again. :)

Looks great, really like the BRG body color.   Is this the Tamiya kit?

Yup, Tamiya. It's a pretty neat little kit.

Looks good!  You paint primer first, then the urethane?  I did this kit too decades ago.

A proper Mini! 

It looks spot on. I had the real deal many years back. This build brought back happy memories.
