Beautiful! Great details and an absolutely convincing replica in every way.
It's a shame about the warpage, but the display idea really works and with all that tasty interior stuff actually requires it. For future reference, do you think it would have helped to clamp or pin the body parts into position as the paint cured?
GREAT job, my old friend!!
The problem with clamping or pinning the parts as they cure is that they'll often stick together, causing a whole new set of problems when you try to separate them
That even happens with lacquer based paints. I've seen on my models, even after several months of "cure time", that opening hoods/doors sometimes will stick a bit to the mating surface.
