Hi all here is the next update

The battery was pyramid shaped so I sliced down the corners then with some material removed I glued them back together getting rid of the pyramid shape (I assume they did it like that to get it out of the mould)

She's looking good on the underside as well KP. I don't know nuffink about moulding but the battery looks good now you've worked on it. I can't think that a pyramid shape would be right.

HI all well I'm calling it done, long way from my best work, very dissatisfied with it, mainly the paintwork, but the door fit is pretty bad and the doors won't stay open without support, it's actually a very poorly detailed kit for the money, it's on amazon for 89 quid, I have to say it's well over priced when you could add 50 quid and get the heller citroen (which is in another world to this) not a kit I will ever buy again. Anyway here is the final result.

It looks pretty good to me!

The biros are a good addition; are they included in the kit? :ha: :-D :-D

No see what I mean, really lacks detail, you'd have thought they would be included

it looks fine to me you have put a lot of work into this i am sorry you are dissatisfied with it, gull wing doors usually have gas struts to hold them open maybe you could make a couple of struts to hold the doors open if you want to display it with open doors, well done

Looks OK to me as well KP but you know what your usual standards are.
