A nice build of this, not something I've seen a lot of but the sort of build that makes me want to go looking for one. :)

Great build. I had to put one of this range together at work (it was the Talbot) just a stick it together and report back type job great work on what is a basic kit. It looks stunning. Incidentally I work for the importers that supply Paul Smith so your model probably passed through my hands at some time.

All the best.

That has turned out very nicely indeed. I've been modelling on and off since 1973 and have yet to complete a model car!
