I dunno, maybe a cousin or something like that. :lol: Actually, you already have too much invested in the pile to let it be. Breathe new life into it and get it ru...

Re: Kyosho Assault Box Art Restoration

Little bummed, u can see yellow behind the "313" . The white stripes are painted. Everything is on the inside of the body. Totally smooth outside. I can always buy another sheet and put new "313" over those on the outside but that does defeat the point :( Resized_20190310_133818_...
