I do like an oddball subject! A great bargain at £18 ($24). So how do I build it?
Ideas anyone?

Different! Some very cool looking Appliance 5 spokes there, flame decals are actually a very good style, most decal flames are absolute shite

Too right, the Japanese do make high quality kits. It was the 70's vibe that made me get it off e-bay.
This is my first rat-look model which I have thoroughly enjoyed building. Just waiting for some bits 'n' pieces from Australia to finish. Photo album will set up shortly

Lol I work in a dyno lab myself, and I can tell you that most calibrators need therapy anyway!

I think I'll join the club, this has given me enough headaches already!!
But I have to say the end result is most satisfying.
Right I'm off to attempt some engine plumbing.

Raided the parts stash the and found an old truck engine to rob parts off, just add some detail to my engine. Chances are they will hidden behind the exhaust pipes.

Those Motobitz IRS 's are the bollox ain't they? Looks proper mate 👍

They are mate, very authentic. Looks spectacular but not for the faint hearted. They are dammed fiddly

Nigel, you're nuts. And if you aren't now, you will be at the end of this build. That suspension does look the part 👍

Managed to finish painting all the suspension and engine parts. It seemed to take forever!
20. May, 01:05
Bill Newcomer
Suspension parts usually do not get many colors. I paint them all near the beginning of the build so I can get to the 1+1 gluing stage.
20. May, 06:07
Nigel Chapman
Moving onto the bodywork. A couple of coats of primer to highlight the needy areas. More filler applied and slowly but surely I'm getting a decent base for the topcoat.

Anyone know the best method for removing automotive paint from plastic ?
25. April, 13:06
Bill Newcomer
That depends. Lacquers come off with 91% alcohol. Purple cleaner takes off enamels. I have left some bodies in as long as 5 months with no harm. Ammonia can take off Future (acrylic) without bothering any enamel underneath (at least with short term exposure). Brake fluid will take off some paints that Purple cleaner will not. Some folks have used oven cleaner which from what I hear is lye based like purple cleaner. Do NOT use any paint thinners as they will turn your body into goo.

#^%*~/> •\?{+ !! Right, rant over. Starting the re-build and now discovered the frame is twisted (Probably my fault). Only remedy I can think of at the moment is to build a new frame and start again. Hey ho... At least I can then sort out engine and front suspension placement.
20. June 2020, 14:58
Christian W
How could I miss that one!
You did a good job on the paint job. The engine looks good too! We know, this kit is not the best out there. I wrote it to you: for me it's a piece of memory on my childhood. I love this kit nevertheless. Should make a project for mine too. Like yours: it's for restoration or to leave it as is - only to put the parts together again.
1. April, 07:22
Nigel Chapman
Thanks Christian for the thumbs up. Your right, brilliant model just dodgy parts and fitment issues. I also forgot to widen the rear wheel arches before painting, so it will not take much to get it back on track.

A few mods to enhance the model building.
Can't do modelling without some banging sounds so got my old Teac Hi-Fi refurbished and got a Bluetooth speaker for on-line streaming as well.

How better to resurrect a stagnant project than to chop the roof off. Looks a bit space age. Starting to get the creative juices flowing again on this one.
10. July 2020, 18:45
Nigel Chapman
Engine space is really tight so Ended up scratch building some basic components using the original engine parts as a guide.
Also started on the rear continental kit.
14. July 2020, 20:06
Nigel Chapman
After looking at loads of rear ends / Continental kits, I have my basic idea. So I'm building a basic profile inspired by a 1966 Lincoln to get a more 3D look which can then filled and sanded to the desired shape, at least that's the theory.
21. July 2020, 18:18
Nigel Chapman
Back after annual leave, full of ideas. 57 rear lights ditched for a set of lenses from the parts stash. Some tidying to do and finish the rear
