The rear fenders just ruin the look of this kit. I'm glad they smooth it out on the Monocraft.
Same! I wonder if they just did that to differentiate the two.
Here's a *couple of scans of the Monocraft handout, for posterity!
Something "productive," for the day - at home with a sick cat. 😿
I'll need to re-scan the inside as it cut in a bit, before I can merge.
When I first started getting into Spyders, before I finally bought one, I was so enamored of the JGTC cars, and the Monocraft kit. Now I realize, if I had that kit, and all that it requires (subjective), I would be way too precious with it, and it would probably be nigh undrivable for me. I could see doing it as a showpiece maybe, but not for use otherwise. Or, reproduced and modded for racing, but that's not and may never be in my wheelhouse, either.
My happy medium is the VM180 - working on getting that together after so long..
