This was a pretty good kit.  Minor fit issue with the grill, the radiator housing gets in the way of putting the grill piece on.  There is also a fit issue with the wheel base.  The model itself is painted Guards Red.

Oh, almost forgot; there is also a fit issue with the dash.  The directions show it fitting in like most models, with the dash sitting in a certain position on the door frames.  However, the reality is, there is no slot for it.  If it sits on the frames, then it is too high when putting it in and the dash is knocked around.  If you try to put it between the frames, then it sinks a little and messes with the frames.  The latter is what I had to end up doing, so the dash is actually sunken in a bit from where it should be since there was no notch in the frames to place it.  The dash just slid down after it was put in.  Best I could do though.  The directions start off great, but go full blown retard after a few pages, having you do multiple things.  It also gets vague on how things are supposed to fit.  The fit issues are what makes it a frustrating model to build.  It was a great kit I would recommend up until that point.  I literally had to cut chunks of the frame out to put the grill piece on.  It extends up under the nose of the car so you can have the radiator/fans (which you can't see, so what's the point?), but the frame drops down too far and interferes with the grill placement.
