I don't love those wheels on this one, but the paint and choice of color looks great!

I like both very much, the mint green reminds me of an old MKll Ford Escort I had back in '84...

Very nice build, but I agree that the wheels look too big for this car.

Hey, i just finished this car too. Didn't you hate the poor fit of the engine and the hood? What a nightmare! I spent hours shaving down parts to try to make it all fit better, still popped up a touch though. Like the nice touches that didn't come with the kit.

Nice colour, it's different but I like it. Black wheels suit the colour, but they are a little large for my taste. Nice one!
