Sure i have seen a 1/43 but can't recall it in the big stuff. There are that many can't remember them all.

That is definitely a code 3. I have the full collection of Sunstar escorts and that is not one of them!!

Yeah it's a Code3 Billy,
You can get them off GermanBay but I know Gary GMR got a model off the seller and was not too happy with the quality,
If you are going to buy one make sure you get good photos from all sides just to make sure you will be happy with it Wink

acb-shop sells those decals in 1/43 and 1/24. Ask him if he will do them in 1/18 for you.

Colin..Think the quality of this 1 will be fine.. Ive seen these 1/18 decals for this back a long on e.bay. Spurk released 5 of these using the decals he got from the seller. Youve got to be carefull of his own printed decals. As colin says plenty of pics..

Ah cheers for clearing that up Gary,
I knew yer man had quality issues but if he used decals from someone else then this one may be ok,

tried several e-mails to acb asking about upscaling, no reply, maybe he doesn't speak englander!!

looking at the completed model, sold by modellautodreams i believe (spurk) some experts seem to think both the reg and front sunstrip are wrong, so i've bit the bullet and bought the 1:24 decals from acb, they seem the more accurate.........just need a graphics expert to upscale them for me when they come..................now where would i find one of them? pirat Question I love you cyclops etc etc!
