I have never heard of this kit manufacturer before so I have no idea how it's going to go. Going to basically build out the box. The only changes I am going to do is get rid of that awful chrome stuff from the engine and the wheels. Thanks guys for the tip of using bleach, works a treat. It won't be a high speed build cos work is busy at the mo so bench time is short. Never done a build on the forum before so please feel free to come along for the ride. The first pictures are the box, sprues and the engine parts now dechromed.IMG_20191002_195208.jpgIMG_20190930_195231.jpgIMG_20191006_232136.jpg

Next job was painting the engine. I decided a black engine would look better and did the edges of the cooling fins and a couple of the side cases in aluminium.IMG_20191008_212041.jpgIMG_20191008_211929.jpg
