I just completed thisn one. It is a resin and white metal kit in 1/24 scale, curbside no engine...It was enjoyable to built but experuend=ced some paint problem. Resin kit often have air bubble in the molding that need to bu filled. When you prime and paint these bubble came back to the surface, so I had to repaint 3 tiems to finally have a nice finish.
But I have to say it is rewarding just to look at the finished model.

Sorry. It was a bit simple so I did'nt fell the pics would be interesting. If you follow the instruction, you'll succeed I'm sure. Two points though. Make sure you clean it well before priming and I experienced some problem with liyttlr pinholes that I filled with putty. They came out of the holes when I primed. I suspect there was some release agents in the little holes. Had to repeint 3 times... Second the alignment of the front axle needs your attention so all wheels are on the ground. If I had to do another onr I would glue the rear axle with the wheels on the body, let it dry then glue the front axle with the wheels already glued and aligned...

When I was at the Indy show those guys had a table in the vendor room. They have some really nice kits. I wish I had taken enough money to get one of their midget kits.
