Been working on this on and off for a while now. The build is relatively straightforward, but the decals are tricky. The stripes in particular are a challenge to make sure they match up right.
I had hoped thisbwould be nearly done now are getting the decals printed, but a few errors on my part with the decals means I need to correct them and send back to the printer.

My quiestion for you guys, is the yellow too yellow?Looking at pictures of the real car, I think it is, but seeing other models people have made, its not far off.
What do ye think?

For the weekend thats in it, here she is. After the reprint mentioned above, I got 2 sets printed just in case. And it was turned out to be fortunate that I did. The Xtravision logo on the side is seperate to the stipes underneath for better placement, and it had a nasty reaction when clearcoated, so had to try remove the clearcoat and use the second set to replace them. Lesson learned with these decals for next time.
Took a few pictures with the other McHale models as well, its starting to become another theme...........
