Orange Crate

Built by: Andy Bannister in Horwich, Bolton, Lancashire, UK

Here is my recently completed Revell Orange Crate. Built pretty much out of the box except for turned front wheels and modified tie rod, replaced body support with .030" brass rod and added spark plug wires.

All chrome was stripped off and re-done with Alclad II after several hours of cleaning up all the horrible seams and filling the ejection pin marks, etc. Exhausts and cylinder head vents were drilled out.

Decals were beautifully printed but a nightmare to apply as they broke into many tiny bits and had to be laboriously pieced back together.

Paint is a 50/50 mix of Humbrol Orange and Testors International Orange.
