I am getting on with returning my mid seventies club racers from Yorkshire, remember those anglewinders?...to their former glory.
I have obtained from the wunnerful' mr Howmet TX (thanks John) his super repop shells including a FAB McClaren M20, which Ihave already trimmed, and it looks great on the MG 550 chassis.
My questions are: were club racers using brush paint finish inside the shells and what standard of finishing were they using ie. was the aim to produce a real scale model with decals etc or was there a more practical approach taken for racing with colours and race numbers to the builders choice?...i expect it depended on who did the job..from rough and ready to concours?
I would welcome insight from those who were involved "in the day"...ta for now Ken

rough trim ready for sanding edges!
