I just wrapped this one up. On the whole, the kit's an abomination. Bad fit on most everything. HOWEVER I'd be lying if I said I didn't have fun building it. :lol:

I stumbled across the old Car Craft magazine which gave me the inspiration to build it. I free-handed the whole paint job with my airbrush and wired the magneto. Thank you for looking. :lol:

Mike, any vehicle with skulls on it is cool, and that's a great build for that kit! Superb airbrushing, also. Those show rods are always fun, quirky subjects to build. Very nice.

GREAT BUILD ! And, in general, I don't even like "show cars". But this one brings back fond memories, even though I still have that magazine (and about 3000 more from 6 decades). There are a certain few show cars that really defined my car experiences during my teenage years, such as this one, Little Coffin and most of the Roth cars. I never built this model, but I don't think I could do it justice, as you have. I love it!

Right about here, Dan Peterson would type "Lyle Love's it". Get it? Ha ha. Okay, that's over with now.
