My next project an MPC Imperial 8 car. It has 2 versions you can build. The standard and one that has been shot up. You also get 2 figures, a briefcase, a safe, and a police motorcycle that can be built. I am going to build the standard version.

The engine just needs to be primed and painted

And the body is ready for paint and final assembly when I get everything else done.

And the bullet riddled windscreen and rear window. It was suppose to have louvers that were bullet riddled as well but they were not in the box.

Interesting .
I thought maybe they gave you 2 different coaches , one with the bullet holes .
You bought the kit second hand ? Stinks that parts are missing .

Nope not second hand, I think the sprue with the louvers just were not put in for some reason. Maybe factory mistake or it was just the glass that had the bullet holes.

Who knows? Anyway it is still a great kit despite the flash on some of the sprues.

I am happy with the progress made today on it. I am basically ready for paint on the body and chassis

Oh and I found the bullet riddled louvers, so I am not missing any parts. All they are are black plastic inserts with about 6 holes drilled into it. I thought it was part of the interior when I saw them.
