Finished - Hasegawa '71 Celica. (Pics)

I thought long and hard about this one, but decided to leave the side GT stripes off. So I'm calling it finished.

I was glad to see it's the first model year Celica with the original grille and taillight design - it's my favourite. The kit is amazingly detailed, with heaps of separate chrome trim pieces for the body, and all the proportions seem spot-on. It comes with decals for all the badges, but I left the engraved badges on instead. The Minilite-style alloys and wide tyres are the only wheel choice. Sharp eyes might spot a mismatched tyre - somehow I lost one but found an old MPC Polyglas GT that fitted. :)

Thanks for looking,
Now back to the '37 Ford!
