Excellent work KP - that model looks so life-like that this thread resembles an episode of Wheeler Dealers!

The door fit looks promising KP and there is some great detail on the interior door cards, very realistic I must say.

wow i am lost for words at the amount of detail in this build i agree with every one else the work on this is stunning, the door cards look great nice touch putting those pockets on what did you use to make them they look good, if it helps i think it looks better with the roof open as you can see all that lovely detail you have put into the interior of the car, love the paint job as well

Not had anything to say, but been following this with great interest. A superb build.
Back in the late 80's, early in the morning on my way to work I would pass on of these being used as a daily driver. Been a favourite of mine ever since.

Hi all nearly at the end now, there are so many more things I could add to this but I think I will just finish it as it is, I must say I much preferred the first build of it and I think it's more interesting to look at when I build the next one it will be in more of a state than the first one.
