Just looked at your work David. I have to say its looking great. I started a  thread a long time ago on one of these. Ill have to revisit it. But until then I get to live vicariously through you within this WIP.

Thank you Bob, I'm glad you like it. I found that WIP thread of yours, it turns out that my version of the kit includes many of the detail items that are in the one you were working on. It looks like they just left out the engine sprue and swapped the chassis plate for the curbside version.

In any case, I'll be following along with your WIP on this one.

Thanks again,

David G.

Hello Everybody!

The more I work on this kit, the more things I find that need worked on.

Case in point:

In test fitting the ground effects I discovered more modifications to be made. The flare fenders are supposed to blend at the front with the chin spoiler. They don't. Obviously I'll be working to correct this.

And let's not even talk about those unfortunate sprue attachment points.

I cut out some styrene bits to build up the ends of the chin spoiler where it has to blend into the fender flares.

With the shapes roughed in and attached to the corners of the chin spoiler, the real shaping work can begin. The stripe on the piece I added is there because it came from a styrene "For Sale" sign I bought at Home Depot to use as stock. The markings also come in handy for identifying which side is which so I can keep the shapes consistent.

That's all for now. As always, thanks for taking the time to look and please feel free to comment.

I have the racing version - if I ever take on building it I think I would glue the doors in place.  Enjoying seeing you build this version David.

Thanks JC.

I had no idea that there were so many different versions of this kit. The one you have looks interesting, it seems to be a curbside like the one I'm working on, yes?

It is curbside.  I think it would be possible to kit bash it with a full-detail version for the engine.
