Re: Quick Assessment -- Carrera 3647 S

Thanks for the advice Jeff. I read Eric Wind's great article about early Carreras, and it mentioned the early unmarked crowns were slightly larger than the later marked crowns, but nothing like this. I wonder if its from an Autavia or Camaro?

Yes a mustard coloured lume would be nice.

Ok I might let this one go for now.

: Thank you for this posting and the kind words.

: This Carrera looks fine to me, except that the crown is not
: correct. As you point out, it is fatter than it should be.

: Regarding the hands, they look correct to me, but have probably
: been relumed. The color / texture just does not look original.

: Jeff
