Woo Hoo, I'm on the list! Is it a stock car version or does it still need wipers, windows and lights etc etc...? LOL

You are that funny you should be on the stage. You are barred! Very Happy And the Cibie logo on the flank should be on the front spoiler-I know!

Thanks for the recognition. Glad it's not finished, if it looks this good now, when it's finished it will be immense.... (see what I did there eh?)

5 planned and all pre-booked. May do more if enough interest but they are a lot of work.

Stripping paint these days is a pain since Nitromores changed their stuff to environmentally friendly material-it does not work as well or as quick. Then paint body with primer then a top coat of appliance gloss white then the yellow. then the decals then clear lacquer then assembly. Trofeu has put up the cost of their models for 2013 plus the cost of the decals so there is no profit in it at all so unlikely to do any more.

Its the one I am doing for you. Paint is done to my liking, decals are all on and its been lacquered too to seal it all in-just did the window rubbers tonight-assembly tomorrow but not in time for the post-Monday probably-sorry its taken me longer than planned.

Slightly off scale-smaller-I have a few sets so had to cannibalize a set. The side stripes need to be longer so I cut them where the door meets the arch and then added a bit more. The bit on the front on the wing is then too long so it has to be cut and then brought back into line. The problem is the little cut outs for the top of the arches don't line up properly. They go onto the model easily enough and need a good soak. They are a bit brittle. I may have to custom print some of the logos like Pisimat as its too small really. Happy enough with the build and the next one will be better.
