I thought this was gonna be a quick build... haha... was I wrong... this kit ranks up there with some of the worst kits I’ve built. The kit is about 60pcs plus the decals. Which are printed very well. The kit has separate doors that don’t fit at all and can’t be made open. You could rebuild the whole door area and make them look good open.. the doors are to big in some spots and to small in others. I sanded them down and got them very close and filled the seems from the inside with some putty. One whole side of the Bodley had to be sanded down to get it to match the other side. There are a few large sink holes a long the body. On the parts trees, the injector pin marks have to be sanded out of most parts on the body. Rear wing mounting holes on the wrong side of the wing. There is no break details in the kit. These will be sourced from a Tamiya kit. I really haven’t figured out yet if the chassis will fit the body.

Esci? Protar?

It’s the new reissued Italeri kit.

I feel your pain.  I started the Protar kit twice and put it down.  Hope things work out for you.

Tim....there is nothing quick about a Protar build. The Cartograf decals are top notch...but the rest of the kit...not so much. Keep plugging away at it. Its a cool car and i had to have one in my Martini collection.
