  • Refurb on Z3 M Coupe (1/18 scale)

    Been meaning to do this work for about 18 months. I bought the model years ago but it was minus roof ariel and passenger side mirror (LHD) which meant it was cheap (about £35 if I recall), then at Silverstone in 2022 whilst browsing around the stalls noticed a 1/18 scale Mini Cooper had a very similar shaped door mirror. I was a bit battered but only cost me £8. When I got home with it, the mirror was near enough the same shape with bonus it had a roof ariel. Removed from the Mini and put to one side in the garage toolbox. The missus said the other day when dusting the study just when are you going to fix this damned model. Right, no time like the present.

    Touch of Comos Black paint and job done.
    Only took 45 minutes. If only it was that easy and quick on full sized car.

    I tried a few years ago to make, unsuccessfully, a mirror after taking a cast from Bernie's similar model. This refurb work has been totally successful.
