Hello again guys,

Here's a quick build from fujimi. a Morris Mini Cooper S.

It was spraypainted with tamiya racing white and then clearcoated with gloss clear from Mr Hobby, as usual.

The only addition is a set of 18" BBS LM wheels, also from fujimi.

Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

Best Regards

Looking great and i love the dark panel lines. They really bring out the body color.

Very nicely done Krishna . Looks very clean and great paint , but I'm not too sure about the panel lines . A bit dark for my tastes but that's just me .

Looks like a nice clean build. Panel lines may be a tad too dark but I kind of like it the way you did them.

Very nice build, very clean and tidy but just one mistake... what you have built is a BMW Mini, not a Morris mini; that is the old original type mini. A very nice model that you have built though nevertheless.

That would be correct, Minis were built under Austin, Morris, British Leyland badges from 1959 until the last Mini rolled off the assembly line in 2000. BMW bought the rights to the name and concept, beginning production of the MINI in the 2000 model year for European markets. Another interesting fact is that Mini refers to the original car, while MINI (all caps) refers to the BMW MINI.

Another great build, Krishna. On your next ones, I wish you would show us your interiors before you finish the build.
