Found time to Plod on with this kit 'smorn. Nearly ready for painting but I can't decide on colour. Likely culprits are white or orange. I'm rather impressed with this kit for the bits fit, the bodyshell is accurate, and it includes two sets of wheels.
Funny thing... I had one of those opened up just yesterday to have a look at how much guide post room there was up front. These Arii kits are great, I have done a few of the other models (Mazda RX-7, Honda GTZ), but I have two of these beauties sitting in my project cupboard waiting for inspiration. I had not realised that this kit came with two sets of wheels - bonus inserts! for sure.
Having just driven a round trip of 40 miles in 29.5 degrees centigrade, and hideous traffic, to drop Mrs Grumpy at the nearest railway station, I will not be building any more slot cars today. Instead I shall content myself by looking at pictures and sitting still.
Mrs Grumpy has gone to inspect the County of Kent for an entire week, so I'll stop moaning right now.
Only got four of these kits to build plus an original LS Models version. All to be painted as Le Mans cars so that means one red for 1966 and two red and two white for 1967. At least it keeps things simple 😁 .
Ah, thanks, Bill.very nice, too. I still have clear memories of Vic Elford in the Hafren Forest on the 1968 RAC Rally. The works' cars were orange-ish, and roughly (not quite) the same colour was continued with the factory 914/6 rally cars.
Racing cars look very different when they appear in magazine photographs, which is why master model makers try to capture what spectators see. Critics have frequently slammed models for being " inaccurate " - even when the miniatures have been scaled down perfectly from a 1:1 - because perceptions at speed are often very different from 'reality'.
