  • Rescued from the trash bin

    Unfortunately I forgot to shoot a photo berofe starting.It was hanging in my to trash box as it was a bare body ,painted with some red- brownish stuff which flaked off in places bt where it did not it was almost impossile to strip the paint,I had to sand it off.As I like very much the shape of this car regardless of dimensional accuracy,I decided to give it a try ,I wasnt so bad in the end.

    I used nail extensions for the lenses and fake diamonds for the headlights.Decals were some very old pattos ones which wrinkled just when I coated with floor pollish ,I would nt dare use lacquer on top of that.I used glass from a good one as a mould to vacform windshield and windows.

      It would have been a shame to have consigned a P4 to the trash. A nice resurrection indeed, and nice work on the "underwear". Slimline motors are a great choice.
