All finished !!!

I'm still not 100% happy with the Alclad brass, but it was the first time I had used it, I think I needed to give it a few more coats, hopefully the next time I use it I should get a better, more brass like finish.

So how'd you do the red pinstripes? That's a great look.

Yeah, excellent build, as always! Your work inspires me every time, these builds are just so clean and very nicely done-subjects are interesting too. Very nice job with those red stripes, and overall clean build. From here the Alclad brass looks good too.

I love it, been looking at getting one for some time, but those Fleabay prices are just horrid! That brass has an antique, unpolished look to it, like it really is old. Excellent build!

Geoff, that is certainly one to be proud of. Someday, I'll get to building mine and yours will be an inspiration.

Nice work on that.

Impressive is an understatement. I like this one A LOT.

I used to work for a local shop that specialized in the restoring the brass era cars.,,,,and You nailed the look on this one to a T .

I followed along on the build thread and it has me looking for one of these kits do for later on.
