personally, I'm not a fan of the promod cars so the subject doesn't nothing for me.
.
But I will say wow, this thing looks incredible and I'm amazed on the speed in which it's come together.

You can't possibly be married or have kids. My hats off to ya.btw

Also, how do you attach the small brass brackets and such to a what I assume is a plastic frame work and hope they stay there once completed ?

What a beauty, John. Excellent craftsmanship, painting and detailing.
I can't follow the fire suppression lines to see the nozzles. What did you use for them?
Love the color of the headers.
You said you scratch made the fuel/oil tank plumbing fittings. Did you make all of the fuel and oil fittings?

i can build like this, but i prefer glue on my windows, orange peel in my paint and gaps in parts, and what fun is it when all 4 tires touch the ground at the same time.......

seriously, this is one amazing build and would really like to see this one in person.... truly outstanding!!

Too funny, Al. The only thing you left out was fingerprints in the glue joints.

This has got nothing to do with modelling; this is art.
Unbelievable detail

Another masterpiece John! Just stunning detail work.

I don't know if you mentioned it, but what do you use for primer and are you polishing it before laying paint? It's got a sheen to it and looks to be pretty darn smooth!

Piece of art... Already, even if it's still WIP. Everything looks so nice and clean, and realistic of course. As Ryan mentioned above, the primer looks very smooth, looks like good basis for paint coats. B)
