Hi all,

OK, so I thought I would have a go at this one, it's going to be my first ever Group Build and first model for 30 odd years, so please bear with me...

I have manage to get hold of these 2 kits, both have bits missing so will be trying to make the two into one all going well, it's not going to be a Race car though...

That's all for now...

Hi all,

I have just finished my first build for many, many years and thought I'd share it with you all...

Break lines are made from twisted copper wire...

I used a plaster for the roof lining and gave it a coat of white paint...

I have used the front seats and dash from a Corvette, the carpet is sticky back felt...

My first time using flock...

Trailer, I removed the fuel tank and boot floor pan and replaced it with some Evergreen plastic and filler...

Many thanks for looking, please comment, good or bad...

Andy...

A beautiful car Andy.

The detailing is really well done and I love the metal fleck paint job.

Keep up the good work.

Tony.

Great job. Love the trailer.

What a great idea for the roof lining too! Where did that stroke of genius come from??
