Austin FX4

Just trying to get a feel for 1/24 scale and yes, this is the shambolic revell london taxi kit a.k.a. Austin FX4 (it's basically a re-release of a '60s toy, there is still the box for the battery and on/off switch molded under the rear seat. Shocking I know, but then it is a cheap kit.) That's the interior done, all of it.... post-11669-0-32018400-1364844887_thumb.j post-11669-0-73398300-1364844943_thumb.j

Some paint on the single moulding for the block, plumbings and batteries (two 6 volts batteries to make 12), apologies for the red and green in there but the rest of this car is going to be black. Body has a single coat of primer brushed on and been sanded, you can see where i had to file down some ejector marks on the front wings. I'm considering removing the bonnet hinges, they look out of scale to me. Comments welcome :)

Ok, matt black brushed on, sanding that when its dry. Then another coat of matt black and a couple coats of shiny clear stuff. Decided im liking 1:24.
