I take it that this primer doesn't make very good nail polish either...

This is an excellent, interesting and very well done model. Great work!

Something you don't see every day or even year. Well executed. I've seen these raw and they are a little rough so your work shines through.

It is a very scarce kit of ancient history, the trend for the mainstream model market is modern, current, or most popular subjects.  In this case, the wire wheels being hand laced are models by themselves, I just had to stick the other parts together in a convincing fashion.  Thank you!

The beauty of the softer, more elegent body lines combined with the straightforward mechanics of the machinery on the old school cars is so much more satisfying to lay eyes on IMHO, and I wish there were more kits of those fascinating machines. There were so many Le Mans racers of the past I’d love to build and see built.... Very few super modern “techy” cars appeal to me as scale models... the McClaren Senna, which there is currently a WIP for, is one of those few.
