Mini Cooper John Player Special

Recently I completed this nice little Tamiya kit. It was a real pleasure to build, but that's usual for a Tamiya kit right?

I painted the body with ZP Jet Black and ZP Gold for the striping. The JPS decals are unknown from Ebay. The wheels are stolen from a AMT VW Scirocco kit.

Re: Mini Cooper John Player Special

Very nice building of a brilliant idea.
Congratulations!
I presume the base kit is the Morris Mini Cooper Rally.
Am I right?.
I'm looking for this original kit decals.
Do you keep them?.
Cheers,
Joćo Alfredo.

No sorry this wasn't a rally car but the racing car with the cooper striping decals.
