It's a pretty little study in primary colors + rust with the yellow and blue masking tape playing against those colorful red paint bottle caps and then there's that dingy rusty roof midget ... kinda miss the sequined gloves on the latest round ...  Cry

Dallas,
I'm looking for a red sequined one at the moment. (tried chain-mail...but it was too unwieldy)...

In the meantime....not the Daihatsu (well, it's a Daihatsu, but a different one)... have 4 of these in various steps of progress on the bench at the moment (the bottom grey color will probably end up being what I use on the gas mech repaint.)

...oh, and this should make Russ and Nick happy....all 4 of these will be going into the rubbish bin.

Well, of course they will go into the trash, as well they should. After all, for anyone else they would be unattainable excellence but for you they are mere rubbish.

Want to be really embarrassed? I'll build a model and tell everyone YOU built it! Nyaaaaa!

They don't need to go in the rubbish, they need to go in amongst some really long and overgrown grass with ivy, spiderwebs and misc junk stored inside them. 
Chuck them in the rubbish bin with an Aussie postcode on it Smiley

But Nick, according to google maps, I live a bit further SW of where either of them guys are.
You're hardly gonna have time to do any modelling down here...you'll either be washing dishes at Mario's, or acting like a tourist  Grin

Fall repairs completed. I'll call this one done for now. Not super, but I think it's okay for a $7 model.

Ha!...well,thanks Wesley.
I have become ambivalent about this build.

Russ...not so ambivalent, that I will go a penny less than $7.99 for it.

Marc,

send me your bank account number and I'll transfer the money.   Wink  You still have my address ? 
Pity I will miss your presentation in Germany. I will be in Adelaide that time.
Maybe end of August in Passadena ?
