My parents owned a sky blue Anglia before I was born. My older brother is very sentimental about it, so I built this for him.

I found the resin body on eBay, which was just a shell (cottage industry). The moulding wan't too bad, though there were plenty of small air bubbles. Some I filled, some I ignored, since my brother isn't particularly fussy about finish, I didn't get hung up on detail or accuracy or finesse - I just wanted an impression of the main components to be there.

Everything was either scratch built from plastic card (or acetate sheet for the windows) or resin cast reproductions of parts from other kits. Engine, gearbox, diff, bumpers and mirrors reproduced from a TE27 Corolla, seats from a VW Beetle. Wheels were a combination of tyres and rims from something (Datsun, I think) and the hubcaps are actually wheel halves from a vacform Curtiss Condor - the whole lot being resin cast as one. Headlights and tail lights are just Krystal Klear - built up in layers for the headlights. Number plates are printed on paper and attached to styrene sheet. Exhaust is insulated wire bent to shape and painted.

It's the first time I've used Motolow liquid chrome pen (bumpers, wing mirrors) and the stuff is AMAZING.

The car has been a while coming together so I'm glad it's done. Enjoy.

Thanks iggie. Yeah, I imagine these were a far more common sight in the UK than here.

Oh, and before I added the suspension I did a mock up of it in hotrod spec, dumped into the weeds and rolling on 10-slotters. So beast 8-) 8-) 8-)
It has given me all sorts of ideas for other builds.... :twisted: :twisted:

I built the floor pan, gearbox tunnel and firewall from scratch using 1mm styrene sheet (see image 1). I looked for pictures online as reference but there was next to nothing, so I was mostly making it up as I went along...
The most help came from shots of other models or die casts.

I did buy a Trabant kit with the intention of using parts but in the end it was useless because they have little in common inside or underneath, so I just scratch built instead.

A great build, VV, especially considering what you have had to do starting with just a basic body shell! I'm also of an age where I can remember these cars as a common sight on the road and I must admit I like the look of the slammed down rod that you tried out prior to finishing it as a standard car! Never heard of those Motolow pens but I can imagine how useful they could be for detailing tasks such as how you have used it here and on things like aircraft IP's and side consoles.

Thanks :D

The Motolow paint has an amazing chrome finish from a paint pen. It was such a worthwhile investment.

I'll definitely post it up if I do. I have an idea along those lines, not for a Ford both something similarly shaped that I have in the stash. Stay tuned.... ;)
