I love it. The motor is really exceptional. The Pro Mods models being built currently are just awesome. I have to admit I do not like watching them run at the races but I do like looking at them and watching them being built here. Like I email back yesterday that is sure is GREEN. Years ago I had a friend with a 32 highboy he would not tell any of us the color it was going to be. Then he pulled into the Frog Follies with it painted that same green as your model. And yes it did not look good on a 32 Ford.

Dave this looks great. Can't wait to see more.
About the paint- love the color, but did I understand you to say that you put one coat of clear over the enamel to speed things along? Doesn't the clear dry faster than the enamel and cause problems? Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but I want to learn as much as I can.........

No it does not cause problems. The green is an acrylic enamel that stays slightly tacky for a long period of time yet it cures enough to not interfere with a two part catalyst urethane. As long as I wait a week or so prior to polishing the clear I will have no "die back" or shrinkage issues with the clear since it is a high solids clearcoat.

Thanks for all the compliments!!!

The Charger is looking sweet Dave!, the lime green really looks good & I've noticed over the years looking at a lot of cars painted in that color, it seems for some reason that only MoPars look good in it, can't wait to see more!

Since Dave said he was using a Ross Gibson engine, the build is 1/24th-1/25th.

He also mentioned that the body was from Flashpoint resins and I thought that those were only large scale.
Then I thought, Gibson engines do not come in large scale that I am aware of so I thought I'd ask....
