Thanks Huet.
More additions to the roll cage which is starting to look more Nascar-ish.
I'm not happy with the top hoop I made, so will work out a better design.

Nigel, i once tried to make a roll cage out of metal. Tbf, i didn't really know what I was doing? I'll try to remember to upload those pictures too! I used...(wait for it) The arms of broken spectacles! Lol, yes, it was for a FB group build. I don't know what to call it, but I'll try to get some pictures up. It was a week build, but not box stock. Mate, it's rougher than the bottom of a bird cage, but I had fun doing it. Munky, you'll love it!

First mock up using kit frame rails. It looks good but the frame is too tall so it looks like a custom built step frame ...

Kit luggage rack slightly modified and repositioned as appropriate.
Rear lights turned upside down and repositioned with extra plasti-card scrap pieces to ensure they are level and fit the body contour.

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

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

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.
