Postby R2D2 » Fri Sep 22, 2017 12:01 am

Came across this old Hubley 1/20th scale metal kit in a charity shop. Only £5.00.

I did fib a bit. The drive shaft is missing but this is not a problem as the original kits were just a solid steel shaft.

Only part broken is the front lights but an easy fix. Will be stripping this model down completely as its screw construction and rebuilding. Have yet to decide what colour's to chose. Will also super detail parts of it such as HT wires to spark plugs etc. Also putting carpet in the cabin plus glazing.
