Very cool. I really like that green nova, the nice thin black rubber between body panels is very clean looking.

Hey rick how about a sterling cake for Carisle, I feel like we've been outdone......

If I thought we could get more than 4 cars there at a shot I'd say sure!

Very nice collection, Cyco! Love the fact that all those cars are under one roof, and they didn't discriminate against the kits. Great looking show!

It's a Eureka, not a Nova.



And the reason for for the cake, it's the 40th anniversary for the Purvis Eureka. So it's a birthday cake. And I must say, I didn't know that fiberglass and gel coat could taste so nice!!

I wasn't sure, it was one of the few cars without the big side intakes or the window that half opens. Does that make it an early eureka? I keep thinking of getting a set of those side intakes for my sterling we'll see.....

Birthday or not, it's a car cake

The green one is most likely a F4, so one of the later ones. Though it could be a Sport, the first one based on the Nova, with a F4 roof & bonnet. Some cars run with a small fixed portion of side window with the 'A' pillar support, some don't. It's an owners modification, not one from factory I believe. And those big 'lambo' side intakes were a optional extra, and just bolt/screw to the main body tub. One of the club members made an update to them, making them a two piece job. A base plate, that fits down through the 'hole', and the upper half fitting to the base plate. Basically meaning you can fit them without drilling/screwing holes into your main body tub.

And it was a very tasty cake.
