This is my project for SMW Telford in November, now that I have got most of my eye sight back, wanted to work on something reasonably chunky.
This is the old Heller kit from possibly 30 years or so ago, re- boxed, and with new decals.Despite its age the moulding is pretty good some flash, and some quiet soft details, but nothing to lose sleep over.Assembly starts with the engine block and super charger, and various pipes and hoses. I added the missing bits from brass tube and fine copper wire, to create the HT leads and other plumbing details.Scratch built the super charger mesh guard, the oil primer pump on the dash board, and the mesh headlamp guards.
Painted with Tamiya X5 dark green mixed with Tamiya Black green, and Flat black, thinned using cellulose thinner, to achieve the very Dark British Racing Green.Various metal shades from AK Intereactive and Alclad and Mr Hobby metal shades.
Scratch built the exhaust using aluminium tube and plasticard to create the Fishtail silencer.
Bit more to do but should be done hopefully in time for the IPMS nationals in a few weeks.

















Thanks 
Gary

Gary,
Beautiful work all the way through! Love the details and how you kept everything looking "period" and realistic. Congratulations and good luck at Teleford! BTW--eyes and vision---good!

Thanks Ted its good to be able to get back into building something, since going on the Metformin ( Insulin) injections things have improved considerably. This is not a bad kit at all given it's age, and there is loads of scope for detailing.
Thanks again.
Gary
