Are you accusing me of being an attention whore?

Or just admitting I have a beautiful creation ;-)

Default St Tropez Esprit

Ah... that takes me back the St. Tropez Esprit in the background, early 80's had some great cars ...
Anyone remember the open top Countach with a Koning kit that was put out, I think by Mirage, I remember seeing it at stoneleigh on its release, that had the same type of effect on me. Must be something to do with wedges.

Hammy - I assume you have read all the Tribute development threads?

As Chris and Dan are the experts at cutting things up and joining them back together.

Viatron, Swifty and myself have all been "cutting & shutting" our Cordite/Navigator bodyshells over on the Sammio/Ribble forum.

I've certainly learned a lot from others on this forum.

Good luck, Paul.

Geoff's 250 SWB Replica Build thread will help you over in the Tribute section, the latest posts show how they widen arches etc.

Also I have searched for the Davy Crockett kit but no joy, if anyone knows anything about it it would be much appreciated
