    A while back we had a little contest for one lucky MK2 Leon owner to win a 1:43 scale model of their car made by myself, it's been a long time in the making and waiting for decals from the states but things are now moving... All be it that @Jairm88 wrapped his car shortly after haha

    Here is the car i'll be making... @Jairm88

    So as usual I started off with a MK2 Leon Cupra, stripped off all the paint and resprayed it with primer then Inferi Black, then after a massive wait I found someone who could replicate the decals used on the car from TTE and so it begins...

    These decals are test ones and will be removed and new ones placed on just before sealing the model but to give you an idea.... Also added indicators as the original didn't have any...

    Next was the rear which is pretty standard with the Cupra text and the Cupra logo...

    After that was the rear spoiler with 3rd brake light (which needs some tlc for smooth edges)

    Then came the exhaust, mud flaps and rear diffuser which needed space for the twin exhaust and single pipe filling and smoothing over.

    Then the fun bits inside the car...

    I needed to strip out the rear seats and make a false floor so it still looked good.

    Then it was the roll cage type thing for keeping the car rigid I imagine

    Now to start on the tyres and last 2 mud flaps

    Lots of painting touch ups but it's coming along nicely.

    Does the badge say 420?

    The bar is to attach the harness style seat belts to.

    I do believe the badge says 280 but go go gadget eyes if you can read that because I cannot... it's only 1mm by 1mm (ish)

    Ah yes I should really pay attention haha
