I got tired of seeing this kit just sitting on the shelf, and I don`t have any GTOs to display, so I thought I would whip this one together quick while waiting to finish my main projects. This took me a total of about two weeks to complete, which is lightning fast for me. I actually "finished" this over a month ago, but I still haven`t had time to put the emblems on. That`s why you don`t see any emblems yet.
I had a little trouble on the front bumper which you can see in the pics, but other than that, it was a terrific kit.

Thanks everyone! The color is Testors Custom Lacquer Series Phoenician Yellow. It was the exact shade I was looking for.

Ohh...and the wheels are the Keystone Classics from the 68 Charger kit.
