I haven't tried that but will look it up, thanks. I wasn't looking to polish as such though as I was trying to get clean original look. 👍

A pleasure for my eyes, well played, that is a stunning picture. As said before it's definitely catalogue worthy.

Sp-1136 motor & gearcase

What I also find interesting is that this is a hop up for the Renault 5 Turbo chassic, to me the screw holes do not look like they're in the right place? Anyone know different or more about this?

Japanese sports car champ from stuttgart
Outta Control

A great addition to anyone's collection. I had one of these when they first come out, way before collecting and run it in to the ground. Loved the wider rear wheel base and the 2 part wheels. A nice find as I am sure they're getting rarer.

Ive never come across or seen both manual myself in one kit. I've owned a few of the early NIB. I would hazard a guess at it being a Japanese version and someone finding and added get an English version.

Another one saved from the big wide world

Just noticed something when having a closer look at all the parts. The original catch pins are actually aluminium, I picked them up and thought they felt lights. I guess the CS and spare parts were always plated steel? Interesting!!!! And I've never seen them before, and I've had a few Countach's in my time HA!

Doyusha 1/12 countach lp500s
purplerob

For a relatively cheapish priceI picked up this Otaki. after making the side windows, which turned out very well, I decided I wasn't going to waste materials etc making all the lights. As I understand it Doyusha was after Otaki whom bought the plans/moulds I guess. These are identical as far as I can tell so far, even the detail in the manual.
