G' Day Folks,
Gone for the 'Sleeper' look again, nice kit to build, similar to the '65 Impala ;)
Paint is Tamiya TS-54 (Light Met' Blue) Interior semi-gloss black.
Big and Little tyre combo from the Revell '34 Ford Snaptite kit.
A few enhancements to the engine using Pro-Tech bits.
Just good fun B)
Cheers
Ray

Very sharp build Ray.  I definitely cruise around in that.  What brand of black did you use on the interior?  It sure looks spot-on for vinyl in my eyes.
