Chassis assembly look's really good/straight/ all wheels touching!  Ive never built this specific kit but old Revell kits can be a real challenge to assemble. I assembled the Tony Nancy double dragster kit a year ago and it really made me appreciate how well fitting most newer kits are.

Looking forward to seeing the body/chassis come together on this Healey.

Beautiful job on this old kit. I had my doubts about the mag wheels but they look good and period correct for a late 60's/ early 70's British sports car in Southern CA. I remember seeing Healeys with after market wheels (and a few with small block Chevies) cruising the streets of LA as a kid. The metallic blue looks good on this car As well. I'll have to keep an eye out for this kit when we get to attend model swap meets again.

Hey!

     Now that's a nice looking Healey! Question, how did you find one piece tires for that. Mine are the old vinyl ones that came in two halves!

Thanks.  The tires are the stock tires for the AMT 66 Nova and also the 69 Corvair. I was trying to get a restoration look, and they decided on mags.

Nice.  I know it's been mentioned but the blue was a great choice.
