Finally finished - discovered that there was a piece missing - the numberplate/front bumper - oh well

A size comparison with the Heller Delage.........

The Italeri model is an old model, simple and by todays' standards lacking in detail, but it builds up to a fairly impressive model. I removed all the chrome plating & used AK True Metal Silver. I quite enjoyed the build, but it became a bit tedious towards the end. I think I'm going to stick with matt things for a while...........

Came out well considering you were losing interest in it, why did Bugatti think having a greenhouse on the back was a good idea, maybe they put their tomatoes in there, lol.

Looks very “Cruella DeVille” doesn’t it. Nice job on an older kit Dave.

Hi Dave
Great result. I love the glass panels in the roof.
