Have you seen what these are on eBay for?
Cheapest I've seen boxed & mint is 850 quid!!!
Doubt it will sell but some US collectors are asking for $2k

Yeah i've got 2 of them on my watch list, i've actually seen completed listings of around a grand, not sure how legitimate they were. I was actually looking for the Monogram/Revell kit when this popped up a couple of years ago, couldn't believe it when i picked it up for £37! I guess the state of it put people off

it certainly looks fantastic. what kind of paint you use for the body? i assume that you also use some polishign
and since i am asking... what kind of fan did you use for the home made paint booth? I am thinking on building something similar. is it a bathroom fan? what specs?

Hi Spanjaard, thank you :) On this one i used Tamiya TS18 Metallic red, over a silver base coat & then lacquered it using Tamiya TS74 Clear red. I polished it using a mix of T-Cut scratch remover & Turtlewax auto polish... unfortunately i think i went a bit too hard on it because it lost some of it's candy effect after polishing.
It is a bathroom fan, make sure you buy a fan with a brushless motor to avoid the chance of sparks igniting paint fumes. i just fit an oven extractor fan filter over it and vent it out of the window
