Damp weather here so no chance to paint anything. However, I have managed to do a bit more work and also sorted one or two minor problems along the way!
This is the original dash from the kit, it is completely different to reference photos that I have, surprise, surprise!
The re-shaped dash ready for finishing.
The body in progress. To get it to this stage was pretty traumatic. I had to reduce the length of the off-side by 2mm and extend the nearside from the rear spring back by about the same distance. Both sides were the same length but mis-matched and wouldn't line up with each other??
This will be the replacement centre for the original wheels. I am working on a way to 'machine out' the old centre as I wanted to keep the original tyres. The ones from the Matchbox kit were way too small in profile.
Next up I am looking for a way to simulate dash instruments. I have tried photo-reducing some from another kit but so far, failed miserably. Watch this space!!
