No offence taken, well, only enough to motivate me to deconstruct and see what can be done with improving it - the lighter paint areas are reflections of natural daylight - the paint is evenly applied - definitely better but probably at the limits of what i am capable of doing. Jean B, Jean B, where for art thou Jean B?

Just my uninformed opinion but I think the AC looks perfectly charming! A delightful, rare, acquisition!

Have I heard anyone call my name? Here I am, savior of the widows and orphans, defender of right and freedom - and of course tireless fighter for better white metal models :lol: . I know the problem with close-up digital photography... however, the red AC definetely needs new clothes. So if I can help in any way, just let me know!

Just imagine how super-cool a white metal AC 3000 ME model would be following a Jean B makeover!?

I'm not quite sure... Better put the AC in a bottle and post it to me :D Here I have a rescue center for needy model cars which will be fed up and released into nature afterwards. If you like to, feel free to send a PM and we'll find out what's possible ;)

I agree with Tom. If the tone was a bit darker it would be perfect for me.

They make cars in England? Who knew?

Just kidding.

I have a real weak spot for British Automobiles. I once bid on (but didn't win) a Triumph TR6 at Hershey. I also turned down an even trade (years ago) of a 3000 just like the model for a 1969 Camaro RS I owned at the time. The Camaro was nice but I should've taken deal.

Those are all great models. I may try my hand at one of those 3D printed atoms.

I'm not an Europa fan, but that one is definitively the one to have.
