Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Roberto from Italy (sorry for my english) . I'm a not a expert  builder but I have more passion ?, my method is not perfect and sometimes are raw but I enjoy. Ok, a few years ago I bought this model on ebay, but it was incomplete. every now and then I looked for what was missing but in Italy the pieces are impossible to find and therefore I took in the usa. now because Covid quarantine Ihave time to assemble it and show you my work. I decided to modify the model to make it a salt lake car. This is the beginning
