This tutorial aims at sharing the building process for the Tamiya kit. The Leyton House is a typical Tamiya kit of the nineties, with good quality and details, but with several fitting issues. I wanted to build a curbside model, focusing on the car shape and livery, rather than the inner mechanical details. It would be an almost OOB build, with modifications only when they were necessary to achieve a better fit and / or to increase the overall realism.

 


Most of the added details belong to the external appearance of the car (bolts, antennas, seatbelts, just to mention a few). When possible, I made the modified parts instead of buying aftermarket parts. Unfortunately, I had to buy replacement decals, being the old ones yellowed.
