1992 vintage Airfix kerb-side/motorised kit, apparently quite rare nowadays. Tamiya paint from the rattle-can, followed by three coats of X22 clear, Studio 27 decals and more X22, finishing with Turtle Wax again.

The decals were outstanding but measured for an entirely different kit !! . The kit may have been from Japan originally either Doyusha or Nichimo or someone like that. It fits where it touches and sits way too high, but as you don't see too many (any) around, then why not, eh ?













Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment.

Looks fantastic Ian! Bet the real one was never that shiny! I've got the Arii one tucked away in my stash...did the Airfix have opening doors? If so, they may be the same moulding. Ive got a S27 Art Car decal sheet for the Frank Stella "graph paper" version, and I'd like to say I will get around to building it soon!

No Tanja, no opening doors here, just a (very) basic bodyshell.
