Hello!

Lookin' good! I also have this baby stashed. I wonder if you will modify this kit - it has some spots like the spoke wheels or headlight protectors that could be worth reconsidering. Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Neat stuff.  I've always wanted to see this kit come together.  Following along.  Looks really good so far.  

Just keep picking away at it...

Hello Fred!

The chassis is lookin' very nice!

Did you notice that on the real thing the hood, although also green, has a distinctively different shade of green than the rest of the body? Thought you might want to check this.

Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Hello!

Yeah, I guess you could put it this way. I guess that's because the body was build by a company other than Bentley, and the hood and fenders are factory Bentley parts.

Good luck with your build and have a nice day

i just made one grill for the bentley lights lol i wound a a bit of copper wire around a drill bit the same size as the grill then cut it , soldered it , gave it a file then cut some spare grill mesh glued it in with super glue , painted it with black alclad primer then alclad stainless steel , looks much better than the plastic one as you can see , do the other one tomorow :)

Was not happy with the grills i made when i fitted them , i felt the wire i used was a little to thick so today i removed them and made new one`s with thinner wire , happy with these one`s painted in Alclad Steel :)
