The Porsche is nearly finished so I thought I'd start on something a little bit more funerer than race cars and shiny shiny things.
I bought this about a year ago mainly because its different and it has a fullish interior and I quite like Revell kits.
This is actually how old it is, 1982 for those whose arms aren't long enough, so with an 80's vintage Revell Kit, we can be assured of two things, 1, there's going to be ejector marks all over the place, and C, a good likelyhood that most of the bits are warped and will need a few attempts at getting them to fit properly. Oh, and have I told you I hate these stupid end opening Revell boxes!!!
I like this shape of the Kombi, more than the older T1 & T2 and I can see straight away the body isn't warped, woohoo
Ok so I've been fiddling with it for a bit last night and this morning.
Typical of the old Revell kits, the interior is a big tub that really doesn't work when you have a lot of painting to do on the inside.
I've fitted the chassis and engine in already. I'm not going to be displaying the engine, so i'm just going to be painting the whole underside black, and then I'll paint up the exhaust system because that you will be able to see, and I've drilled out the exhaust pipe.
It actually all fits rather nicely actually so far. I'm not showing off the engine because to do so, you'll need to have the rear door open, and I'm not a big fan of having boots and bonnets open really. I may leave the bonnet loose so you can see the engine on the odd model, but I'm planning to do a bit more work on the interior, make it look a bit more lived in
Righto then, that's it for now, more later
