Very nice Dave - very nice indeed. Wink

You know, when I saw a comment from you somewhere about the 'mirrors need moving' I thought that you'd apply your recently acquired RPM decals to one of your plain white models...

...and how right was I! Rolling Eyes

So are you going to move the wing mirrors then?...

Doh! Shocked

I wasn't putting the photo up to show people how your model should look Dave, just to support my comment about the mirrors that's all mate. You know what these peasants are like lol - they know nothing about 'hench' British bulldog rally cars do they? Rolling Eyes

The best option might just be to paint them as you say. Don't worry though mate, I won't mention them ever again! Embarassed

The decals came from an RPM resin kit Simon. Quite a rarity that Dave picked up off a member on the old forum.

RPM only did Dai's 1986 National Breakdown and 1986 Circuit of Ireland models, and a plain white Clubman car. They had so many plans but those were the only three 6R4s that ever materialised I gather. Crying or Very sad

I've just had a look at some other photos from the same event, and I can't make it out mate - so there's yet another eternal unknown 6R4 sticker quest for you to solve lol! Rolling Eyes

I have both the 86 National Breakdown & COI Rpm kits. The decals do look good on the IXO rather than the Long Wheelbase RPM kit Very Happy Something for me to consider Wink

Do it Laughing , although the pods are longer on the RPM kit so there is over lap from the decals. If you do build then put the Austin Rover on first(which I did after measuring up before decalling) so the Bilstein, Ferodo, Champion decal strip can be located properly.
