    This was a real pleasure to build, with beautiful printing and very accurate fit of parts. The body parts are printed on a glossy paper that has a nice shine, but flakes off if you cut it with a knife. Not much of a problem, since I usually use scissors for curves. The designers have a penchant for lots of big tabs everywhere, but they can always be cut off. Can't wait to do their other model that I have, the Jaguar XJR-11! Please forgive the crooked mirror in the first 5 pictures. I added it later than the instructions said because I was afraid of knocking it off, and now it's just held on by a blob of glue.

    Looks really good!

    On a side note - is Prototyp out of business? When I've checked their site it appears that they have no models in stock and no digital ordering version available. If I'm right, I've missed a chance to get these models - and they are really cool looking.

    Right - but they are all listed as 'Out of Stock' and there's no pricing given for any. I guess I'll try contacting through the site and see what he says.

    "The following addresses had fatal errors:
    ryan@prototyp.org: 450 [TEMPFAIL] destination not valid within DNS"

    Looks like I'm too late on this one :(

    Here is the link, but I ordered before they started the site move PROTOTYP : Shop You won't be able to order any models until the move is complete, which might take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
