This is really coming along wonderfully Ira. Your imagineering is truly inspiring.

I'm working on the Engines Now. I applied Bare Metal Foil to some of the parts and used Brass, Flat Black, Flat Aluminum and Chrome Silver paint on the others. The Tail Lights are from a '37 Cord.
I applied some Black "The Detailer" Wash on parts of the Engines...
Here is the Front View. The Headlights are from the old AMT Parts Pack...

Got Ed in the Cockpit and glued his arms in place. I used Aleene's Tacky Glue to fill the Shoulder Gaps...
After searching for a while, I found that the Revell '68 Corvette Flame Decals were perfect for the Stiletto!
Here are the Flame Decals in place...

Thank you for putting a driver in it Ira. I was haveing a bit of a problem trying to gauge it's scale. I'm assumeing it's 24th,25th scale or maybe 1/20th? Either way , you sir, are a REAL modeling nut!!!! I LOVE this flight of fancy!
