This kit has been a grail of mine long, long time and I finally got a rebuilder out of the UK. I'm probably going to do a loose box art style build with it as I just enjoy the nostalgia vibe. This kit was released in 1959.
Disassembled and out of the strip tank. I was lucky here it is very clean and minimal cement was used. Just a few small repairs need to be made.
Cleaning everything up to assemble the body into one piece. I had a partial sheet of original decals I've been saving for just such a project
More to come. I am now finished collecting some of the rare parts I was missing. Full steam ahead!
If your not grown up by the time you're 60...you don't have to.

First off I'm envious of the systematic approach you take to your projects. And the results reflect it. When it comes to modeling, and most things, I'm definitely a messy desk executive.
Secondly, as I noted on TRaK, those air cleaners are drop dead gorgeous, and reflect one of the oddities of this early era of plastic model kit: namely that some parts were finely detailed and wonderful representations of the real part, whereas, as in this case, they would be attached to pieces that were sketchy at best.
