This was my first build of 2006. The kit itself is great, but this build fought me all the way. I originally sprayed it with Testors rattlecan enamel. I let it outgas about 2 or 3 weeks, then cleared it. I was instantly met with horrendus crazing and a ruined set of decals. I bought another kit for decals, stripped the body, and repeated the process. Except this time I let it go six weeks. Same thing again. This time I took the other kit body and painted it with good ole Duplicolor rattecans (GM Medium Orange, looks alot like Hugger Orange). I bought some Fred Cady decals, and those worked out beautifully. The third time's a charm, and I only let it cure a week. I took the leftovers I had and built a street machine. I named that one Street Burner before Revell had used that name.

(Yes I know the hood is askew, It does fit, but not in this pic)

Wow, that looks super. It was sure worth the time you took to build this one.
