Model #1

As Bought:

Fairly sound model but there are quite a few paint chips. Not sure if to restore or not at present.

Restoration:

Resprayed in the original maroon paint with new decals.

 

 

Model #2

As Bought:

Rear door missing and doorframe is bent. Fair bit of work to do on this one.

This second model was restored to the 979 Newmaket Racehorse Carrier version.The rear door frame was hammered back into place and a new rear door purchased.

 

Model #3

As Bought:

Part stripped and with replacement doors that do not fit properly.

Restoration:

Something a bit different? I saw a photo of a police horsebox and thought this model was just crying out for a similar livery.
The decals are home-made.

 

Model #4

As Bought:

Badly chipped. Both doors are missing and there is a dent in the roof.

Restoration: None yet.
