Looks good Tony!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You might be able to rid yourself of that tinted background using Auto Color in your photo editing, or making sure your camera is set for Incandescent and not Sunlight.

Very cool roadster! Best replica I've seen! Looks like as recently competed.

Let me know what yellow did you used in body?

Cheers!

Thanks Cesar, I airbrused Boyd"s Smoothster yellow over MM white primer. There was no clearcoat or polishing.

Really cool. I love Boyd cars and have seen few in real life.
Very nice kit and you definitely did it justice. Very clean build.
