I bought this on ebay UK about 6 or so months ago. The date of the kit is 1969 so the decals (although I coated them in two layers of gloss clear) would not release from the paper backing except the footprints that I've put on the roof!

I have found another sheet of decals called 'Flower Power', so used those.

Great build Pat. Yes That really looks like some of the wild machines that were built during the "Flower Power" era. The slicks might have been a little hard to control on the sand but otherwise a fun machine.

Cheers Jim. Thi is the box top, the chromed wheel discs don't come with the kit just grooved discs to copy Long Play vinyl records!

Hi Pat !

 With this kit , I was surprised , maybe like you , to find no chrome wheel discs in the kit ! Just 78rpm records . I stole the  Chrome Discs from an old Monogram , Black Widow Rod kit .

Yes Tanker-Builder, I was disappointed. I tried chrome tape onto cut olastic discs but they didn't look right.
