All done, I could have been neater! I had a mare with the PE I couldn't find a tool strong/sharp enough to cut into the sprue.

Nearly done. Just a few bits to fit, I carefully opened out a few holes so that there would be a direct fit first time out and it worked..

I didn't use many photo-etch parts as they were difficult for me to get off their metal sprue. What to you use to cut the these off? I broke a strong craft knife/blade and my sprue cutters weren't man enough!

Thanks Rob, the year was 1991 and this is the Monte Carlo version of the Ford factory car.

I like this. What is the approximate model year of this car?

Oh well, accidents happen. A little touch of white and it will disappear.

Stay Safe.

I keep hitting "escape", but I'm still here.

Today I added the interior tub to the chassis unit and the windows. You will notice I scuffed the white number square as the drivers window took multiple goes to go in! The other windows went in first time!
