Trying to, still getting the bugs worked out you could say :lol: , I still need to redo how I set up the finished models, I lost a book shelf during the move, and that book case I used for models/model stuff. So that is throwing me off , its and OCD thing I guess.

The grill comes chrome plated, I think it will just look better, to me for some reason chrome does not look good. I have no idea why I keep doing black wheels, just like I dont know why I keep buying ferrari kits :lol: . The Jag is going to have chrome wheels, and if I ever get flocking that I can use, it will get done. I have now bought two different things of flocking, and both I can use.

One is too dark, and the last one I got, its close enough in color, but its all clumpy
