Greetings!

My entry for the Cars Group Build:

Posted Image

This is an old kit. Manufactured in the same year as I was born. You'd be forgiven for thinking that was 1996 but surprisingly it was a little bit before that.

Whilst the kit hasn't been updated since that glorious year the boxing and instructions clearly have.

The kit itself comprises of very few parts. However Mr Gordon really makes his presence known which is pretty much the norm for kits of that era.

You can really give this car any paint job you like. There are also quite a few choices of country for the number plate. Most of which seem to be for countries that wouldn't exactly be known for beaches let alone a beach buggy. Yea, I'm talking about you United Kingdom.

The kit has had a wash. Next job is for it to go to the operating theatre where a scalpel will be taken to all that flash. Nurse!

Terrific choice though it wasn't on your shortlist if I remember correctly. 1/32 scale. Is it a reboxing of someone else's kit?

It wasn't on my original list Pat. But I couldn't decide which to build out of my stash so the obvious thing to do was go out and buy another kit!

The original was a Revell kit that didn't require paint and would snap together. The instructions for this one say it can snap together but after some dry fitting there is definitely going to be glue required. And it most certainly needs painting. The original also appeared to have wing mirrors which this one doesn't. Who needs wing mirrors when you're driving along a beach anyway!

Nice one Pete. Not sure why the first one looks like she needs to go to the toilet though!

As expected this went together very easily.

After a number of months I've finally completed a model having started a few. This is only my third completion of the year.

Just noticed the front left tyre wasn't on properly. Easy to fix that but can't be bothered to take and upload another photo to replace that last one!
