Great job on an American icon. Nice clean foiling, great color. I love this kit, I think it's one of Monogram's best efforts.

Always good to see more of your work, Paul. Could we see some engine & chassis shots too?

Thanx for the compliments - color is tamiya light red pearl - and interior a darkish pink but shows up as brown on pics looks better in real life - I'm still missing a few engine parts this was a second hand kit but will post as soon as engine bay is finished

Great work, and superb foiling.

Can you get a couple of outdoor shots to show off the color better? I'm looking for a rare Mercedes 300 SL color, Strawberry Red Metallic, and am trying to find something close. This looks very good, but darker than the Tamiya TS-59. Did you use an undercoat?
