Never had the short indicators either. Quite a few of the options for the Tourer have been made both for my own amusement and the saloon version since the saloon and Tourer share quite a few details but the saloon was around longer.

When I do release the final versions - including other colours - I'll have to do some research into trims and colour combos so they're correct. The only flat colour Tourer I can recall seeing was white, every other one has been a metallic.

I like these too Red one over Grey for me but a 5 door saloon with the early wheel trims looks good to me - assume that these will swap over or will perhaps hopefully become a variant. Nice T shirt item I feel?

I just realised you're going to have to do a saloon because I assume you want to immortalise Zoidberg in some way.

I think that phase 1 tourer is doing this for me:

... which I don't mind. I chose this one because it's the longest SW I've ever seen. It's what the Americans would call a "doozy" I suppose.

BTW, one you've cracked the 3-door, you've probably got a wider market... and you've also potentially cracked the cabriolet at the same time. No pressure :angel

Alvis: Once I've got the saloon rear end sorted which mostly involves chopping down the tourer, redoing the back of the roof and adding a rear window, I should have everything in place to build what you describe.

The order for creating the next variants looks likely to be saloon, 3 door hatch, drophead, coupé. That should set each model up after modifying the one before. The saloon is easier to make now the tourer is completed and the drophead will be easier once I've altered the 5 door hatch into a 3 door hatch.

Hoping to have some more free time this week to do some more on these. I'll keep you all abreast of progress.
