I omitted the backseat, and instead used it to make a middle seat by cutting the middle out of it.

originally it was intended to RESTRICT the number of models i build.... didn't work. Most people seem to like to see models of stuff they recognise, which is why i guess i do them.

Looks good.
What's the kit like & what scale is it (24 or 25)?
WANTED - inspiration, steady hands, better eyes and about a ton of patience.
