Thanks guys, I started some of the engine detail. I need to go pick up some more white paint for the interior panels.

Also debating doing the trim on the windows and belt line. I know it "should" be chrome, but I'm kinda liking it being black

Looks good so far. If you don't foil the beltline trim, maybe hit it with a different shade/sheen of black.

Nice job simulating the undercoating look on the floorpan. I always tend to be "thorough," and do it like a good workman would have and get it all, including the tunnel.

 

The gold engine looks vaguely 371-394. I like the Riviera air-cleaner on that, too.

 

Nice interior remodeling.

 

I'm not a big custom guy and like Jim, I prefer a little gloss, but this is coming out very nicely, and so far is a model to be proud of.

Looking very nice.  If only it were SHINY :) :) :) .  Are those the kit tires?  I have 2 of the kits and the tires are blackwalls even though the box says tampo printed whitewalls.

You can request the new tampo printed tires from Revell. And Andy I love where this one is going. Thanks for the brainstorm. ;)

I guess I hadn't even noticed the tires were supposed to have white walls outta the box

started to foil the upper beltline and window trim, decided I didnt like it and peeled it off.

if it was a 1:1 car I could paint the trim black, so thats what it will be here too.

I'm pretty meticulous about keeping it clean in there. Have a few hobbies so it can get outta control quickly. It's a little messy for me at the moment if you would believe that. I find I spend more time organizing than building sometimes, however that lets me focus on my builds when I get going.

This thing is sick. I like the stance, and white interior. Great engine detail, its almost a shame to cover it with the big dual quad air cleaner. Still way cool regardless.

thanks for the kind words, I'm still not 100% sure on that air cleaner, but I kinda like it for the options I have here.

Since we brought it up, I thought it would be fun to share my workshop. It is a mess right now, Its in desperate need of a re organization.

front window wont let the body rest in place and is hitting the dash :unsure:

*edit, got it fixed I think by shaving the dash. That was a little tedious since it was assembled and painted.
