For Christmas, I was lucky to receive a PDF Ruby kit.
Having started it, I thought I'd post my progress.
This is the state of play after 3 coats of filler primer spray, Halfords, although there must be other makes. It was as hard as I imagined, the print lines were apparent, but not bad, so it was just a case of wet and dry and some elbow grease. Of course the proof will be when another coat of standard primer goes on! 20210106_191857.jpg

Riveting. The squared paper is so I can vaguely line them up, easier than trying to mark the plastic. And yes I did primer them first then have rub it off!

It saves trying to mark out the rivet positions. The squares are 1mm s you can space them as you wish. Obviously it doesn't do anything to help my dodgy gluing work, but that would be the case however I did it
