Still working on the Comet, almost finished really, but just last night I shot some clear on the body and I wanted to share the results. I have never used clear before, honestly this is my first try! I really like how it turned out, I think this car is going to look pretty good when I am finished, take a look!

I know you have seen this already DC, I wanted to share with others here. This is the same kit, mine was a bomber I got on ebay. The engine was assembled but unpainted as well as the chassis. I froze it all and then broke it all back down and started over. Anyway, turned out ok, it's a great kit for sure!

I had to re-position the engine in the frame, it was crooked, and then I had to file down the exhaust manifolds to get them to fit. They are now painted and installed and the frame is attached to the floor pan. I also got the glass installed as well. Here are a couple of photos. I have a drive shaft that I created out of tubing that is ready to install and I have a set of wheels and tires that I finally decided on that are ready to install also. Hopefully I can get that done tonight and begin final assembly. This is my entry for the Autism Awareness Model Car Contest that is going on over on YouTube. I'm not normally a contest guy but I wanted to show my support for my friend J.C. Cline and other families touched by Autism.

Here is the underside of the beast. Yes the floor pan is yellow and the frame is burgundy red. I can't explain the color choices, sorry! lol

Another shot of the body. I removed the door handles and all the badging including the long side trim the extends all the way nack into the wing portion of the rear panels. I like a clean body and I can't stand BMF a problem I think I will need to overcome someday. (or so I'm told!)
