Hi all,
Well after much-hidden reinforcement due to the weight of the resin, I am pleased to say that I am calling this finished.

Just to put this in perspective the dimensions are; 260 L x 135 W x 260 H (mm) and 1.7kg!!
It's no wonder I had to reinforce the model bench.

A shocking way to treat a Chevy!

Another colourful and entertaining model - but what a whopper. :wooo:

Hi Grant,
Yes, it was a struggle to get it into some sort of shape.
lots of filling with both "Green Stuff" and "Milliput"
Weight was a specific issue and I had to do a lot of hand drilling and reinforcement with carbon fibre rod and 5 min epoxy to secure sections together.

To aid transport and display, I have kept the figure and the car body separate.
This model was a real challenge as my first all resin garage kit - nevertheless and that said, I was very pleased to test myself with a new genre.
