Another build from earlier this year, again built for a friend. It's a nice kit and I think his choice of colour really works well. I like the way Tamiya have added a bit more realism with the separate bumpers, wing mirror etc, just gives it a more detailed look (though still decals for windscreen wipers!!?).
Once it was built, my friend was happy but we decided that it needed a little bit more. So I made a basic interior, complete with driver, passenger and some essential luggage!! Unfortunately the interior isn't really practical when running the car because one of the body post extensions has to be removed to fit it (otherwise the post would run through the driver!). Wish Tamiya had stayed with the horizontal body posts they used on the wheelie Type 2.
It's nice to see that Wild Willy is now such a big star that he gets chauffeur-driven to events, with appropriate reading material supplied.
Ok, enough of my nonsense, hope you like the pics.
