  TRON EQUIPE AUTOMODELLISMO has been around Italy and the 1/43 world since 1975.  The firm is best known for its depictions of modern sports and racing cars, complete and finished.  Their web site has good pictures, too.  See it at   

Tronmodels Car Models and miniature collection

 
  That's not where I found this kit.  It dates to those earlier days when Tron was still mastering their craft.  But I paid little for it, gave it a try, and for the last few weeks I have been having fun.  (The results may suggest that I had too much fun and not enough mastery.)  Anyhow, here's a little photographic essay for your possible entertainment.

I hope you enjoy my entertainment.  Now it's time for me to get back to my yard work.

 Well, that was a few weeks ago.  Right now I'm trimming the azaleas for next years bloom.  "Whee" or "Whoa"?  

Enjoy!    David H Nerd

Hi David,

Your build craftsmanship is excellent and you've chosen a beautiful color combo. 

The kit looks daunting with it's large parts count and all the included P.E. 

Thanks for all the pics !

Now enjoy the outdoors ! 

Steve

Love your model David. I have the Tron Hardtop which I bought years ago as a built up model.

Love your model David. I have the Tron Hardtop which I bought years ago as a built up model.

Did not know they made a hardtop.  I made one out of a convertible and painted in the colors of the Dodge La Femme,  pink and cream.  

And David, I do not think you give yourself enough credit on this Tron kit completion.  Looks good to me.   Dodge La Femme, and yes they did come with an umbrella for the lady owner.
