I built this model approximately 5 years ago. It's a 1/16 scale kit which I thought was just horrible. Don't even remember which paint I used but I wanted to share it with you guys, I don't remember sharing it before......

LOOKS GREAT MARCOS.


I HAVE A FEW OF THESE KITS & COULDN'T AGREE WITH YOU MORE, WITH THE DOORS THAT DON'T MATCH THE COWL OR REAR SECTION THAT WELL, YOU ALMOST DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START

Horrible?  Looks like the centerpiece of any model collection to me!  Nice Job - and thanks for posting!

Sorry guys, I figured since it was a big scale there would not be any issues with fitment. That's what you get for building out of your comfortable "scale" zone.... :lol: I made a mistake also, should have put this in the big scale section.....Sorry Harry.....

That's a beaut, Cruz! Old cars didn't have great panel alignment right out of the factory. I wouldn't stress on it a bit with one that looks that nice overall.

Hola Marcos!

 

it seems that you managed to dissapear the "horribleness" of the kit pretty well. I found it beautiful! :D

Great looking result from what I'm sure was a frustrating build.

Stunning.... just absolutely stunning, the amount of detail it makes it look real. A truly beautiful build.
