This Opel I finished about two weeks ago. Because of the rainy weather I had to wait til yesterday to take some sunny pictures.
The chassis was part built 27 years ago, and then stored at an Opel distributor. It came with the box and new unbuilt body.
I love this car because of its scale look when you watch the front or rear side. :-)
Painting and decalling (with originals) the body took me many hours, but I wanted to achieve a realistic look.
Now I have the triple: a nib one, this new built and a runner :-)
Ejoy the pictures. Comments are welcome as always.
