Beautiful job on the paint, the colors, the details, it's a STANDOUT model. Congrats.

You made the same mistake that 99% of people who build a '41 Willys make. That raised lip around the windshield represents the black rubber gasket around the glass. It is not supposed to be clear.

He did say it was only 99% done ;)
Great tip on the windshield, I've seen that on other models and never painted it. Now I know
