Hey all!

What do you get when you combine self isolation with boredom? 
 

See for yourself ;)

Far from box stock, too many modifications to list - but you can check out the build here .

All comments are very much appreciated!!

Cheers B)

Nicely done. The weathering and minor battle-damage looks excellent as well as the detail-painting on the interior! Did you modify/widen the rear-track so those rear tires would stick out from under the fenders more?

Answered my own question: I see now that the wide-track rear is a result of using the Nissan rear suspension.

Beautiful looking build. The weathering from the road splash is done so well it's hard to tell it isn't real.

I built a '79 RAC Rally replica, I know the pleasures of the RS1800 kit all too well.  Nice job.

Love the weathering, wish more people would give it a shot.  I understand the tires sticking out, but a few bumps will slice and flat them.  But the most important thing, YOU FINISHED IT!
