Glorious build. Loved every step. Took me back to 1984 when I built my first SRB. I wanted to get it as close to the box art as possible, so that meant painting it Tamiya Bright Red, painting the front roll bar in aluminium, painting the inside of the body matt black, and getting the driver as close as possible with the paint pots I had. I reckon it's come out nicely. I'm not too sure about the pre-cut stickers....I felt like I was cheating a bit.....but it did save a heap of time!!

Thanks for all the comments. This one is doomed to a long hard life dust collecting.
