In answer to your question...

Yes please, I'll take one off your hands.

[when it's finished]

This is another one i have to add to my chassis to 3dp list

Alexis - be careful though - the 3 makes are different sizes - so it definitely requires chassis length adjustability....

This is the GPM kit. Casting is outstanding. Cannot fault it. But you need To be a top builder to put all the metal pieces on. As I am not I failed miserably with the rear window surround ?

I have always desired GPM cars - and when I was able to pick up 2 kits recently I was so pleased.

Not so much at the moment.....

The body castings are out of this world. The windows fit like gloves. But I was and am unimpressed with the lights, interior and the lack of a simple instruction.
For anyone out there that needs to build one - the windows need to recess slightly, so that the metal frames fit properly. But there is nowhere that states this. Sio I made a hash of the windows on this one as nothing fitted correctly. I substituted the front headlights for units I bought separately from Spain..

Lets just say my next car of GPM's - the Moss car, will be much better.

Building continues and I have got the rear window surround correct on this one


Why oh why was in a kit of this quality it supplied as left had drive. Both Le Mans and Goodwood versions were right hand drive????


So my hand made correction.

95 % finished on Sir Stirlings car, with the last 2 waiting for me to order parts.....





Current situation with the protoslot kit - actually a very very nice rendition - better than the GPM  and Ocar versions


Then this is where I am with the Ocar version - actually for the price - a very neat kit!



PS I HATE photgraphing my cars - they look awful under the microscope. Need one of those filters that the old actors/tresses used to smooth away wrinkles Tappingfoot Rofl

Nice work - thanks for sharing! I've learned to fit parts together before working on them to get an idea of the work involved. It'll eliminate the rear window/surround issue you happened on.
