I built this around 3 years ago for a friend of my son Joseph. He received this kit for a birthday gift and after coming over to the house, asked me to build it. The kit is an old mold and is quite crude in quality but I think I managed to work some of the bugs out of it anyways. I didn’t do a whole lot of research on this car and the avid enthusiast will be able to pick up on that pretty quick but still I’m pretty happy with the turn out. I’ve just about perfected my painting method on autos and I got ALOT of practice with bare metal foil.
I had a case made out of a shadow box from Hobby Lobby, had mirror cut out to fit for the base, custom built Lexan clear cover and personalized it with a badge for him. Kid nearly fell out when I gave it to him.
