I built this a while ago. This is another R&R resin, that I bought at NNL east about 10 years ago. They are a lot of work, but with time a little and a lot of Scotch, they can make a nice curbside. :o

You did a great job on a R&R body. I did the mistake of buying one, and won't do it againg, that's for sure.

Nice job on a tough build! Excellent color choice, looks like it's straight out of a '56 Mercury ad!

Thanks all. I always get suckered in to R&R when I go to NNL East and think maybe they got better and then say myself never again. They have so many cars nobody ever done. They are stricky curbside and the challenge is there.
