This was my 'take-it-on-holiday kit, and I just kept plugging away at it once home. Tamiya Chrome Yellow out, machinery grey in.
Really happy with the paint, I just need to chase a replacement windscreen and some taxi decals, though the kiddie peel 'n' stick look fairly good.

Cool build! The idea of doing a taxi is unusual, looking forward to seeing the development.

Interior done & chassis done. Gotta order some taxi decals and a replacement windscreen tonight.
Those two will be the bottleneck in this build.

Nice development on the interior. Looking forward to seeing this, patience whilst awaiting delivery of stuff will be rewarded by the results. '92 Impala Taxi 1705482731

Abandoned. Thrown together to give away. Turned into a BMF sponge, many attempts to get one piece down. So over this cursed POS. At least I've made a mate's 10 year old son happy!

Really, really p'd off over this build. Promised much, delivered nothing. It was on the floor, about to feel a size 10, when I decided I'd throw it together and get it out of my sight and life.

perhaps you planted a seed in a young mans mind of some sort so all is not lost . sorry for your frustration ive stomped a few kits to bits in my time . good luck on future projects though and have you tried the molotow chrome pens ??? i bought one pricey yes and i havent quite got the knack of it but the results are quite promising

Sorry to hear it fell into the "arrrrgh" pile but gifting it to a child is better than stomping it into molecular dust. And like Nismo said, perhaps it will provide inspiration for a future scale modeller.
