Hi folks,

i guess the car needs no introduction..

it's an old kit from 1985 which i bought online a couple of months ago

fitment was vintage also with some issues ,but i guess it came out fine

paint is Tamiya rattle can over Duplicolor automotive primer..

i built it pretty much boxstock except for plugwires and some adjustment to the hood..(made it 1 piece so it could be de/attached)..

i built it before when i was a kid...don't even wanna think how it looked back then

Nice work. I have one of these, and I also built one as a kid. I remember the fitment of the roof, hood panels and the trunk lid all being issues,

It looks righteous, nice job. I don't know how else you would want to build this one.

I've got one of these to build as well - it was great seeing those videos in the 80's!

Hope mine turns out as nicely as yours!

Cheers,

Jim
