Looking good Bill. This one looks like it is falling right into place. You have a knack for making things look easy.

I have been called wild Bill many times in my younger days Rom, lol thanks alot bro!

John, I appreciate you lookin in on it, thanks so much!

hey Chris, finally makin some progress, at last its finally starting to look like the Charger, I was dreading this part because everything fit so poorly, wasn't sure how I was going to get all theses decals on and in line with so many body panels, I have a few more decals to put on and it will be ready for clear, WooHoo!!

hi Bart, ya you arent here to hear all the cussing, and watching me crawl around on the floor looking for somthing I just dropped! lol I think we all Know there is NOTHING easy about model building! and again it was great to meet you, look forward to getting to know you better, anything I can do just gimma a holla

thanks Chris, these are the decals from the kit, I was really nervous about them, I am not sure how old this kit is and we all know sometimes with older kits the decals can go south! they seem to be just fine, I am very relieved they are going on with out any trouble, I just have a few more to put on and it will be ready for clear, which is another point to worry about, sometimes the clear can do stupid stuff over decals, I have had this happen before! really hoping it goes well, I would hate for something to go wrong at this point!
