my next build is the little bubble car from BMW it will be a straight out of the box build, i might put some flocking on the floor to look like carpet, the attachment points on the chrome parts is on the face of the part so you can`t detach them without damage to the chrome so i will be stripping the chrome and use alclad on those parts, although it is 1/16 scale the finished car will look just like a 1/24 scale because of the size of the real car was so small i hope to make a start on it within the next day or so, also the instruction booklet is in colour

Nice. There's a fella here in Vancouver who tools around in one of those when the weather is agreeable.

Great choice, Syd. Those little "bubble" type cars are such a hoot to look at - not sure what they are like to drive though!
