Que lindo !
Good job.
Maybe the winscreen needs to be more filthy/dusty but it's the only suggestion I can do to improve this fine model.
Great !

Not bad. A little frail in some parts (spare wheel holder for example) and instructions are not the best, but all in all it is a nice little model.

Thanks for replying. I wondered about pro's and con's and will keep an eye out for the wheel carrier.

you are most welcome. I ended glueing with some white glue the back of the spare tyre to the chasis to add support.

I am thinking of doing a little diorama with this guy.

The box art for that figure showed it wearing a Barça Messi jersey. But since I am no big fan of the Barcelona team I decided to go with the other side of the coin: Real Madrid's CR 7.

by the way, both figures are from Paracel miniatures. Great quality and detail.
