Kit / Model
Caterham Super 7 BDR
This is one I finished in 2003. Lots of scratchbuilt parts and machining, but not as much as the blue one. - Mark
Non kit parts were scratchbuilt and/or machined by myself including hundreds of nuts, bolts and fasteners.
The Panasport wheel castings were taken from another Tamiya kit.
Except for 4 decals, (the firewall data plate, the Bosch label on the coil, the decal on top of the oil cooler, and the nose badge), All the decals and graphic images were drawn and printed by the builder.
Some of the scratchbuilt and machined items:

Battery, connectors and hold down.
Distributor & vacuum advance, added wires and boots.
