Mini-Kit - A Great Entry Into Prototype Modeling
Author and Model by: Rob Manley

Editor Note: The above car is a modification of an existing model by Proto 2000. Rob added a Mini-Kit which is a small collection of parts to the existing model. The additional parts give the car a more accurate look when compared to a real or 'prototype' car.

These resin conversions or "Mini-Kits" are a great entrance into the world of Proto-bashing or resin cars. It allows the modeler to experience the world of resin building with out the difficulty of building an entire car ot of a multi-media kit. The main advantage in one of these mini kits is that all the prototype research is done and the decals and necessary parts to make a distinctive car in one bag. The intro price isn't as severe either.
