More than one way to deal with that:



Still click on the link though since that will lead you to more photos.

Excellent - I always liked the looks of the Simba.

Didn't know there was a kit of it either!

I've been looking for a 'reasonably priced' kit for this. It looks like I may have to buy a 3D file, get it printed and scratch-build most of it.

Looking at this paper model, it seems as if the basic form of the Simba could be readily created out of plastic card. By contrast, the Odyssey 3D kit looks like it would need plenty of clean-up and scratch-building, as you said.

If you'd need to replace so much - like those over-scale exhaust covers, for example - creating your own body might be simpler and faster. Of course, that would depend very much upon whether you've got appropriate wheels and other bits-and-bobs in your spares box.

That does look promising!
