It looks like Revell's Black Widow to me, but can't be sure. Progress so far looks really nice, I guess I have to start hacking on mine again.

Looks like you are doing a nice clean job. If you haven't already order some Bare Metal Foil for the trim. It takes some practice to use, but you just can't do a 50's car without it.

Thanx jantrix. Right now bmf isn't within my resources. I had planned on attempting it but without the cash I just try to build clean and different from everyone else's. Thats why I shaved the side trim

Looking good, Chris. That silver/black pattern decal looks surprisingly good with a beige interior, and will go well with the red.

 

It's nice to have a wife (or girlfriend) that actually encourages building. I might end up with one of those myself, someday.

Thanks charlie. I was kinda leary about those but I think it works. I knew the beige and red would mate well because my 79 camaro was fire engine red with a sand interior. Nancie is very supportive and even when we don't have the funds she makes sure I get myself something every month to add to my collection so I can't ask for much better.
