IMHO, and if 1/24 scale is your thing, the best ones are in the Monogram late 70s El Camino with 'camper' (topper). They are deep and deeper and NICE!

Sooo, I must apologize for my lack of updates. Lots-O-things going on in my life, and not much of it is bench time!
 
I made a decision about the door panels I hope you'll all agree with. Billy had painted a body-color accent stripe on the door panels which I thought was a GREAT idea at the time. Now that the interior is nearing completion, I can't seem to make it look right with this bright blue in the middle of the door panel...too outstanding! Here's what I decided to do...shaved the manual window cranks off, will be replaced with photoetch power window switches, this is a classy ride! Anyway, I opened up the 'windows' for the accent trim and tried a few things:

Here's how Billy had done it:

Here it is with the blue fade body stripe placed behind:

And this is how I think it looks BEST! I'm not a big fan of wood inside a car, but this 'torched' basswood looks nice and completely right fot this car! Elegant hi-performance!!!

It'll look even nicer once its got some gloss on the wood...
