here you go, got a few misstates here and there. Trying so hard to be dead on and have extra detail,just could not do it. Needs decals and clean up and a few bits here and there they will have too hold out. I buffed so much till the paint is down to the shell in spots. Should have seen the big one,10 years of hard driving  it's age was showing. Ours the paint was "Dusty desert rose"  none to be had around here, so I made do.

Looks good, enough to me....I can't say I'm ever that detail oriented.....There's guys that put a lot of effort and thought into their work, and that's commendable, but You don't have to be "spot on" to make an attractive model....This looks great....I could use one of those hoods....I've got a 378 that's just itching to be built....Looks very close to the real one....You'd have to look very close to see any discrepancies...
