Looks pretty good. Gotta love the long roofs. The partially opened windows are a nice touch.

Looks fantastic! Nice color on it too! The resin body looks very accurate.

Thanks again everyone for the comments. Jamie, my paint process is fairly simple. Once I get the body sanded the way I want I use a piece of tack cloth & wipe everything down. Next I spray automotive lacquer primer in sever thin layers. Next I gently sand with 400 grit if I think the primer is too rough. Then I spray three coats of base coat or more if there's not full coverage. Then I spray a first coat of House of Kolor clear in a light coating & wait till it tacks up. Then I spray a full wet second coat of clear. Most times thats enough but sometimes I need a third coat. Once the clear dries I usually polish the hood, trunk & top with a micro mesh polishing kit & give it a final rub out on the entire body with Turtle scratch & swirel remover. Thats about it.

Thanks again for the great responses, I do appreciate it. Gary, you hit the nail on the head...Variety is the spice of life. I like to build a variety of models & I usually build them the way I would like to drive them if they were the real thing. Dominik, I'm glad you like this one...I have many more resin wagons waiting in the wings to be built when I get the time. Just something about the long roofs that is so cool.

Nicely done. Those R&R kits require a lot of dremel work.
