Good afternoon all,

I am putting the Capri on hold for the moment, as I am part of a remembrance GB on a FB page I am admin to. One of the founding members passed away last year, so this is our firs annual remembrance for him. The theme is "Special to me", which means anything you want, just show why it's special to you. For me, this car was something I always wanted when I was a kid. Just something about it looking sporty and cool made me want it. I actually forgot I had this kit until I was having a sort through on the weekend with all my kits!

So this is the kit, sprue shots - comes with a nice PE grill as part of it, and the rubber tyres look pretty good also. I have also sourced some British Racing Green for the paint colour of this (Thanks Yak :) )

Well, I hope I do a good job of it! I'd like it to be nice and tidy, slowly growing my car model collection :)

That's a Yak (Rob) Special - He's able to get the proper car colours - so it's perfect. I have just received it today, 2 days after sending, no leaks or anything. Brilliant. And plenty there also, Might have to build an Aston Martin as well or something lol

Arr automotive paint, it looks much better than the Tamiya equivalent.

I'm sure it will be :) Smells good ;)

Well, I didn't get much of a chance to work on it over the weekend, so almost everything is off the sprues now, and ready for priming hopefully tonight all going well. Looking at doing some decent detail on the engine, so will be looking into wiring etc, and hopefully having that all done this week :)

Thanks for looking in - not much progress though

Nice project B)

Are you going to detail the springs? Considering they will be quite visible? You could shave/sand the moulded spring and replace with wire (wrap round a narrow screw), or butcher a couple of pens and take the springs from those

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

Was actually looking at that last night after taking these pics to be honest. Thinking about how I would go about making them better, using washes and such... but maybe just replacing them might be the way to go. Wouldn't be too hard!
