Have just finished this one off. It's from Paul at Fisher Pattern & Model. Have yet to work out the most effective way of putting the race # on the mesh/grille. Only problem I had was not placing the oil cooler far enough over on the passenger side thus not allowing me to fit scratch made leather bonnet straps

Dave,

The Cunningham looks excellent. I saw the car at Cunningham's museum in SoCal back in the '70's and at Laguna's Historics. Paul is a friend of mine and he makes some wonderful kits that are engineered to go together so well. It is a really nice beastie!

Tks for the comments guys, appreciated.

Hi Patrick, I have 3 more of Paul's kits, as I'm retiring tomorrow I may get a little more building time, wife permitting!!!

Andy, I have thought of dry brushing the # on, I think that is the way I'll have to go.

Skip, Just a curbside. You could open it up but the casting is fairly thick and would take considerable time.

Ciao

Dave

Nice job on the Cunningham. I love those old road race cars. Your model does the Cunningham proud!

Thats nice work. The Fisher kits are a great way to get started with resin. They build up easily in to a sharp model that really captures the look.
