Revell US kit, twenty-odd years old and not a bad one:



Wanted a contemporary look without changing the 'structure' too much, so de-chromed throughout, faired-in and cut down bumpers front & rear, steering wheel from a Tamiya R34, the rest is just paint. Tamiya Gunmetal, polished & buffed, not clear coated, a dark red interior which I carried through to the outside accents and finall a little carbon-fibre decalling on the valence.

Ta Daaaa !!


















Wheels & tyres are 18" SA-70s from Aoshima and just don't look right. I'll replace them with 16" when I can, also need to source some brake discs, there's a set in the R34 spares but I'll need to perform a fair bit of surgery to get them to fit the Revell axles.

Hope you like it, AFN



Ian.

The wheels look ok to me, maybe just need the right height reduced a scale inch or two :)

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
