The Meyers Manx has always been one of my favourite cars and I was so happy that Round2/AMT re-released the kit in 2011.
This model was built for the 40th anniversary theme at the 2016 Livonia Can/Am Challenge model contest. The challenge was to
build a model that was available in 1976. It could be an original release, or a re-release that was essentially unchanged.
I thought that I would try to do 'ghost flames' on the front hood, but didn't really pull it off..
