Thank you! Although most of the single steps repeat from one model to the next, I find that every car has its very own difficulties - let's say: challenges

I love the coupe - definitely a wise choice to go with this little known car. Back to the di Frasso Roller, another great looking car, one which I'm hoping Matrix or someone will have a go at especially as I don't think Top Marques really captured the shape of this car - it's too chunky and stunted though I suppose if you got your hands on one this would be remedied!
...will we ever know...
I'm perhaps too romantic with white-metals, but I wouldn't care of those shortcomings, so give me a hint if the Top Marques crosses your way one fine day...

I think the unusual and interesting shape of the coupé makes for the best part of this build too.
I really hope that the dramatic shape will come out fully with the - then - completed model! I think this Coupé was far ahead of its time, it reminds me of the Facel Vega Coupés of the late 50s, for example.

Sacre bleu !
Hard to believe, but there is indeed a life beside model building! I tried it this weekend, but it was not that interesting, unfortunately the works that I wanted to do came too short. However, some progress was made, so the chassis were painted black:
Hubcaps for the Coupé painted a bright red:
And a second coating with primer, after smoothing over the bodies:
The roof of the Coupé is still not satisfying, the putty is much harder than the primer, and when sanding over, the primer is brushed off much too fast. I fear I'll have to make the roof only with dozens layers of primer and sanding after every turn...
