You are of to a good start with this Rory and not hanging about, nice one Cool
Can the model be built with the lamp pod re-fitted after the decals are fitted or are you doing away with the lamp pods,
If there was a spare lamp pod knocking about I'd be happy to get my hands on one Wink

I have the guts of an Autoart M3 upstairs so the decals were scaled from years ago. The artwork is rough on this one and has since been well improved-its on my 1/43s.

Just have to enlarge the sheet. Also have 1990 Killarney, MAnx and GAlway rally plates done. As for the spotlamps-it will depend on what rally I do the car from as there are photos of the car on the Manx in the dark! Funny light in the kitchen makes the white paint look cream too!

I parked the M3 in the cabinet beside the other white models and the M3 looks cream scratch

Nice work, will make a stunning model.

If you are in the notion of producing decals, I would be very interested too.

Later-much later-will be building 5 and then after that perhaps a trans kit of decals and a RHD dashboard-but its weeks away so don't get too excited as they will not suddenly appear next week!

All 5 now have names attached to them even if no money has changed hands. Will be stripping the shell over the weekend.

Slow slow slow-trying to get a good paint finish on rubbed down factory paint is the difficulty. Thinking of having the shells soda blasted to remove all the paint. I need to get some money in soon and I guess that will put the pressure on me to do them. I have your Escort Cosworth to give back to you-been sitting up there for 3 3 or 4 years now!
