It's a second set i've had stashed for ages , all different colours, scratched and marked but with no damage or tank dents/corrosion. I got Sean Dewis to paint the set for me and used new badges. I think it has come up ok.

OH YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS !!

Thanks for that.

It looks very smart.

I have always felt the Z1B in blue was always the rarer of the 2 liveries.

The twin disc always makes a huge visual difference.

I think it makes the Z1 / A / B look more Mad Maxish, if you know what I mean!!

I always thought the blue Z1-B was much more common as for some reason a lot of people seemed to prefer it. I always preferred the red which is why I bought one. Pics soon on Projects area.

Mine was originally red but was painted blue around 30 years ago when restored ish. Will go back to red at some point.
