This looks nice.  What did you use to paint the seats and door panels?  It really looks like fabric.

Since I have a Ranch Wagon, a Fairlane hard top, a Fairlane 500 hard top, a Fairlane 500 convertible, and a Ranchero now in work, I have to have a Custom to go with the rest of the fleet. It looks like a great kit.

If you were using your paint stand after it was emptied, that could explain the problem with detaching some of the parts from their trees. :lol:

You got me so excited about thi kit I started mine yesterday It was going to be my first model next year. I like your engine and chassis. Interior is also looking good. I hope to get more tips from you like the one about the steering link. Thanks, I'll be tuned in.

Thanks for the comments.

 

Ron just to let you know. I also had an issue with the exhaust. I would install them after you put the engine in. They just dont seem to ge where they are supposed to .So i had to crazy glue them to get them to sit right. after ripping them out on putting back.  My ever fist time using crazy glue on a model.

Thanks Andre, I appreciate getting yet another tip from you. Hope you keep them coming. I got my top color painted yesterday, going for two-tone. I'm getting ready to start the engine.

Hey Ron. Just be carefull when building the engine. the fule lines are very brittle and very hard to get off the tree. I snapped one of them in half. and also snapped another when the engine was installed. working on the chassis. but easy fix.

Was your frame warped Andre? Ended up using epoxy and clamps on mine. Broke my fuel lines too!

Nice build Andre.  Looking real good so far, the engine looks very good, love the red paint.  Makes me want to go out and get one.  

Thanks for sharing your pics,     :D

I wonder if the fuel lines might be better replicated with copper wire if they're that delicate. Thanks for the heads-up on that.
