It started life as the Jadi 1/18th scale yellow car.

The car was disassembled and painted with Model Masters "British Green Metallic" and the stripes are actually tape from a model airplane shop, and a perfect match for Saffron Yellow. The green actually turned out a bit dark, but I didn't want to deal with trying to get a sample of the factory paint so I'll live with it until they make a real Type 25 model.

Recently I did see a true Type 25 Model, including black wheels and partial red-leather interior, on E-Bay.I remember them saying that orders placed at that time would insure you receiving a model in July. I think Bill Reudgen, the salesman at Valenti Motors, may have ordered one.

After finding out I have quite an additional wait in front of me, I did another Jadi model conversion from Lightning to Gunmetal to ease the pain a bit.

Now all you have to do is add the side reflectors and re-route the exhaust. ;) ;) ;)
