My interpretation of the Moebius kit. At the suggestion of member fury3, I decided to post this here. I'm new here myself, though some of you may recognize my name from that "other" forum. If not, well I'm just another model car nut, like yourselves.  :lol: 
Krylon satin almond on the roof, Tamiya metallic blue on the body, and several coats of Rustoleum clear. Model Master flat tan on the inside. I wanted to capture the look of a car, "restored to taste", with the only deviation from stock being simply a color change. I have to say the kit was a joy to build, fit and finish wise.

Great looking model, it deserves better than the top of the trash can!  I love the color BTW.

Thanks Jantrix, CrazyGirl and timc. Sadly, I only have two options for taking pics right now. Indoors with less than optimum lighting, or finding something outside to set them on that's actually high enough to stick out of the snow. Not a lot of that outdoors, as the Canadian prairies is still firmly in the grip of old man winter. Here are some more of the indoor shots I took.

Jeepers that's a clean build. That dash is amazing. Yeah, Darcy, I don't think you'll be anonymous here very long.

Dang, I guess trying to hide out here from those alien abductors wasn't the swiftest idea. :o

Thanks for the compliments, everyone!

I'm glad somebody talked you into posting this! I love the color combination you chose and it looks like you've done some nice paint detailing on the engine and interior.

Welcome to the board. I hope we'll get to see more of your work soon.

Thank you, Monty. As I said, you can "blame" fury3. :D

He's well known from that other forum, and convinced me to give this one a try.

I do have a few more builds to share, as well.

Really nice Chrysler! Great colors, and a very clean build. Good work!

I want that kit, but I can't bring myself to pay the $30.99 the LHS wants for it.
