Tip... Kdog's pinstripe decals are awesome, just don't use micro-sol on them!
I'll get some sunlight pics as soon as its done.

Really cool Steve !! I have one of the resin ones to do up but I'm waiting on windows from Modelhaus.
I'll be glad if mine looks half as cool as yours.
Oh Puhleeze... I'll have to retire mine after you build one!
Things to watch out for... The window fit is loose, had to do glass trimming to get the window to snug up (And sractched the windshield!!!). It still doesn't meet up with the c pillars. I also have some wierd issue with the taillights mounting square, also... need to fiddle with that.
Modelhaus is excellent stuff, but all resin has issues...

'61 Dodges seem to be coming into their own now................for a long time a lot of folks wouldn't consider one because of their looks but that seems to be changing now.
I agree with you about resin fit troubles...........I had some trouble with the glass on the '61 Cadillac I did. It appears as though the glass wasn't the problem, the roof was slightly warped around the windshield header..............some reheating under hot water fixed that. Your glass looks pretty good though!8)

I had a warped promo for glass, bumpers and steering wheel. The HH resin bumpers and sw were unusable.
Yes, I alcladded the promo bumpers.
