I decided to have another easy build so this one is hitting the bench next.

It's curbside and is an old Tamiya motorised kit with horrible metal axles!!! LOL

The kit was very kindly given to me by Dave, (Mr Hirakawa) a few years ago. Thanks Dave, I'll try to do it justice!!

The blank body looks very sleek just by itself, can't wait to see it 'all dolled up' with the decals. popcorn

The Geordie is well able for the decals, I just hope they survive the warm water.

Older Tamiya decals can look fine and just break up.

Do a test Al and let us know how you get on.

These look gorgeous when finished.

Shay the kit instructions are dated 2013 and are in perfect condition so I don't anticipate any problems.

This ones temporarily on the back burner. I screwed p the paint by not allowing enough time for the first coats to gas out properly. It's been in the brake fluid now for four days and still there's a lot of paint that won't come off. Ford Zakspeed Turbo Capri 1757741307 Going to give it a week back in the BF and look at it again then.

Get an old toothbrush at it Al, if it's not off by now it needs a scrubbing.
