Looks good, they are not the best of kits so you have done well to make it look soooo good. Well done.

Thank ya folks!

 

This thing fought me every step of the way, I even had to use a knife to remove the clear factory plastic from the box. I'm scarred for life! I don't have the desire to ever indulge in an AMT again.

The only thing I ever liked about the AMT NASCAR kits were that they came with the gas can and jack lol

Great job on the AMT kit I always liked their interiors. The Thunderbirds body shape was weird too. But your Lumina looks just fine.

Haha! That's looking on the bright side. I'm planning a shop dio so they will come in handy for sure.

 

These decals were ok I guess, I sprayed three coats of Testers 1261 clear on the sheet as soon as I pulled them out of the box. They didn't take to solvaset at all, when I tried using the solution it just wrinkled up the decals and they wouldn't smooth back out. So I used thinned white glue and my wife's hair dryer to apply the decals.

 

Thanks again for the comments.

True that lol. I did like the opening trunk, but the rest was fiddly-rubbish and not pleasant at all. When I tried mine it was the days before I thought to pre-clear my decals so I was out of luck.

Look's awesome Bill, I really like the paint scheme on this car and I have no idea how you made the decal's work.  The underside is really nice looking as well, great job on a rough kit.
