This one may not be perfect but I am especially proud. This is the first kit I am posting that I completely airbrushed (except the interior). This kit is done in Tamiya metallic blue (X-13), the black is Allcad black base, and the frame has Tamiya dull coat for a matt finish. I cleared it with Model Master Acryl. I hot-rodded the kit with rear slicks from Amt, and parts box front wheel.  I hope you guys like it, I learned allot from it, and ya I know the hood doesn't fit well, and I messed up the side windows, so I left em out. I still need to BMF the hood. But let me know what you think?

 Thats come  together very nicely.  Well done. I'm just finishing up my own version of this classic Revell kit.

 

This kit must be decades old now but still holds up well to current offerings.
