Calling this one finished.
A fun little project that went together pretty straightforward.
I leather trimmed the seats and added a good few bits around the engine bay. I also had to make my own decals.

A nice kit but the car actually sits too high off the ground really.
To sort this out I'd need to take a lot of it apart and do some major mods to the suspension parts. Maybe at some point but not for now.

You've made a nice job of that Roy, turned out very well. Always loved the 'Gold Leaf' livery and you've replicated it very well especially with those home-made decals.

I agree, the Europa did always seem to sit quite 'squat' on it's wheels, the rears being almost tucked up under the arches, but though it's obvious to those who are aware of such things, the model doesn't look too far off. Just one of those little niggles that will bug you I'm afraid?

Nice job Roy, well done. Cool ThumpUp

Thanks Kev.
Yes, the 'stance' is wrong and I suppose I notice it so much as I had a black/gold JPS Europa many many years ago.
I bet I'd struggle to even get in one now...LOL LOL LOL
