Hi I picked up a load of built car kits but they need a bit of a TLC, some need repair, some total rebuild.

Herbie VW.
Gave it a good clean and changed the colour of the sun roof to black and repaint the running boards.




The Monkey Mobile.
Repainted the interitor as arrowed., refitted windscreen and steering wheel.







Batmobile.
Paint strip and rebuild.



Had 2x missing wheels will replace with the 2 arrowed.


Bentley Blower.
Will be repainting the interitor, refitting broken parts and marking missing top arm as arrowed.


Should keep me out of trouble for a while, there will be more to come.
Pete.

Hi, I've repainted the interitor and tidied the rest, re-fitted broken parts and made missing top arm.

Had trouble with the front wheel arches, just would not fit so removed the rear ones like the one below.







Hope you like it.
Pete.

Wow Pete, you are one busy person with all the work you have on the bench. There are some great memories with these kits. The Bentley is sweet and the Monkee mobile too! what a super find...

Prost

Hi finished off the Batmobile.

Primed and that's where I should have stopped.
